Shahrukh Khan

Everyone knows that the Badshah of Bollywood is a complete family man and a doting father. Despite his busy schedule, Shahrukh is doing it all from reading bedtime stories to kids, attending daughter Suhaana's dance performance, to cheering them at their Taekwondo championships, and getting in shape for son Aryan. Being born in an inter-faith marriage, King Khan has even given his children enough freedom to choose their religion. SRK leaves no stones unturned to be a perfect dad.



SRK loves to express his feelings about his kids and their achievements openly on social media (Twitter and Facebook). SRK even sent his son abroad to study, so that he can keep him away from media limelight. In a tabloid interview, this is what SRK had to say about his kids and their bond, "I don’t have many friends. My kids are my closest allies, best friends. And I can share all my deep, dark secrets, my happiest or saddest moments with them.” (You can also read special Parenting Lessons from Shahrukh Khan)

Abhishek Bachchan

His parenting mantras and dreams for his little darling are quite simple yet motivating and uplifting. He wants his daughter, Aaradhya, to make her own choice when it comes to making a career. Here is what Abhishek has to say about being a parent, "As a parent it is not about material goods. The gifts a parent can give the children are love, care, education and understanding. These are the most important gifts any parent can give.”



Well, besides being firm on Aaradhya learning the basic principles, he makes no compromises when it comes to fondling and dandling. When Aaradhya turned 15 months old, Abhishek gifted her holiday home in Dubai. When it comes to parenting this is what Abhishek has to say, “As far as I am concerned, taking care of the child is never just a mother's role. It's all about sharing responsibilities.” (Also read about 4 Things New Moms Can Learn from Aishwarya Rai)

Ajay Devgn

He is a complete hands-on-father who makes sure that he is not missing out on any fun. The action hero often steps out of the spotlight for babysitting and watching animation films with kids. Here is what Ajay Devgn says, “I take time out to spend with my daughter. I have the responsibilities of a father as well as that of my family. So I have to take care of all.”



Apart from celebrating the moments, he tries to keep his kids away from media glare. He even makes sure that he makes up for the time he is not available. Ajay has even made positive changes in his daily routines at home for the sake of his kids. He has been quoted saying, “I have started eating my dinner at 9pm after which I read for an hour to Nysa. She just loves reading.”

Saif Ali Khan

Yes, he always has his hands full of work and his new life (with Kareena) but that does not keep him away from being a full-time dad. Despite his divorce with his first wife, Amrita Singh, there is nothing that keeps him away from doting on his kids. 'Chote Nawab' can give best of everything to his son Ibrahim and daughter Sara. But, it is his time, care and guidance that make him a devoted father.



Apart from giving a royal treatment, he makes it a point to give enough support and encouragement to his children. From school functions, to movies and parties, he puts in all the efforts to gel well with them. Even after getting married to Kareena, Saif was quoted saying,“The most important thing in life is balance. I’m never really happy until I spend time with my children and my wife.” 

Akshay Kumar

The rough and rowdy Akshay who goes lengths to give his best on silver screen melts to bits when it comes to his child. Son, Aarav is lauded with love and utmost care by the Khiladi of big screen. His love can be clearly accessed through the tattoo of his son's name inscribed on his back.



He teaches his son martial arts and also encourages him for other sports. Akshay has his own talented way of pleasing his child. He also hosts special screenings of his films for Aarav and his friends. Akshay even encourages his son to take on charity causes. This rough and tough dad is also emotional. This is what he tweeted when his daughter was born, “There is no greater feeling in life than holding your baby for the first time. I wish I could express more about how HAPPY I am right now, but I’m at a loss of words."

Amitabh Bachchan

Superstar is an understatement when we talk about this Bollywood dad. He is a megastar not only for his fans but also for his kids. He is a complete family man who considers his kids and grandkids as “wonderful gifts.” He has never differentiated between his son and daughter. AB Sr. says “Because Jaya and I do not consider Shweta as paraya dhan, we both have already decided that whatever little that I have will be divided between both Abhishek and Shweta equally, when I die." Amitabh has always openly expressed his love and adoration for his kids and grandkids. 

Vivek Oberoi

The latest Bollywood actor to enter the daddy brigade is Vivek Oberoi. he was blessed with a baby boy on February 6, 2013. When Vivan Veer, looked up at his father for the first time, this is how Vivek felt, “It seemed he owned me and my universe in that one moment and that was the most beautiful feeling in the world.” Vivek has openly expressed his feelings time and again about his new born. The actor said that he wakes up a few hours early, before leaving for his shoot, so that he can hold his son and spend time with him.
