Though there is no stereotyping dads, we can’t deny that a lot of Bollywood flicks with Dads remind us of our own. Ranging from melodrama to an over-possessive Dad, Bollywood covers almost all the types. Here are 4 types of fathers that were in Bollywood movies.
1. The Chill Pops
Anupam Kher as Dharamvir Malhotra (Pops) in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
The perfect modern father, Pops had strict values but he never forced his beliefs on his son. He instead supported his son through all his decisions. The character was also fun loving and jolly.
2. The Emotional Dad
Alok Nath as Krishnakant Mishra in Vivah
Krishnakant Mishra was a very emotional father. After the death of his niece’s parents, he takes her in and becomes a father figure to her. He loved his niece and children equally.
3. The Parampara Pitashree
Amitabh Bachchan as Yashvardhan Raichand in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham
Yashvardhan Raichand was a man of principles. He was a very dominating character who was obsessed with following old traditions in his household. He later gives up on his outdated principles to reunite with his family.
4. The Control Freak
Amrish Puri as Baldev Singh in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge
Baldev Singh takes the trophy for being the scariest father. He is shown to have strict values and stricter opinions about how things should be in his household. His anger was terrifying but he still managed to melt hearts when he showed his gentle side and let his daughter go with the guy she liked.
