1. Anil Kapoor And Sonam Kapoor
Perhaps one of the most solid father-daughter “jodis” in Bollywood is the ever-so-popular, Anil Kapoor and fashion queen, Sonam Kapoor. Everyone remembers Anil Kapoor for being filled up to the brim with energy and exuberance. Although Sonam might not be as energetic as her father, she too packs quite the punch herself. From her debut in Saawariya to her hilarious roles in Khoobsoorat and The Zoya Factor, Sonam has established herself as a force to be reckoned with. Besides being a talented actress, Sonam is also a major fashionista. The pair have even acted together in acclaimed films like Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga and AK vs. AK.
2. Saif Ali Khan And Sara Ali Khan
Sara Ali Khan is one of the cutest of the latest Bollywood star kids and shares an adorable relationship with her father. Despite facing some difficulties initially after her parents split up, Sara maintains a wonderful relationship with her father and her younger half-siblings. Sara even starred in the revamped version of Love Aaj Kal, a movie her father had once acted in. These days, the pair are often spotted sharing adorable pictures with one another on Instagram.
3. Shah Rukh Khan And Suhana Khan
While Shah Rukh Khan may be the King of romance on-screen, he is a doting dad when it comes to his family life. However, he doesn’t shy away from expressing his love for his only daughter, Suhana. While King Khan may be the father of three, he definitely has a soft space in his heart for his daughter, and no matter how old she may grow, she’ll always be his little girl. Their excellent relationship is truly a sight for sore eyes.
4. Jeetendra Kapoor And Ekta Kapoor
The queen of Indian soaps, Ekta Kapoor, is the apple of her dad, Jeetendra’s eyes. While she is a strong and independent lady and has a mind of her own, she still holds her father in high regard and close to her heart.
5. Chunky Pandey And Ananya Pandey
Chunky Pandey is known for being Bollywood’s funnyman. However, his darling daughter Ananya too made her debut in Bollywood very recently.
