Father's Day: Celebs honour fathers, father-figures with posts that can leave you teary

Many have taken to their social media to honour the heroes of their lives

Entertainment Desk June 20, 2021

Father’s Day may not be as vehemently celebrated as Mother’s Day is, but that does not make fathers any less important. From bringing home groceries to taking you out for shopping, to ensuring everything you need is in the palm of your hands before you can even ask for it, many fathers do it all.

And what fathers don’t do is tell you exactly how many sacrifices they have to make in a day to come home to a happy family. They are silent heroes; always on the run without ever showing their true emotions to the people they love.

So while these heroes deserve to be cherished every single day, making a special effort to ensure they feel loved on a day dedicated to them is the least we can do. And that is precisely what several celebrities of our entertainment fraternity are doing.

“His ‘I love you’ is clasping your hand, patting your back, tapping your head, ruffling your hair and denying permission for a night out with friends. #HappyFathersDay to the only hero of our lives,” wrote actor Adnan Siddiqui on his Twitter handle.

“Thank you Dad for everything in life... Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers out there,” added Fakhr-e-Alam on the micro-blogging site.

“The girls and I, another Father’s Day spent just right!” wrote actor Saleem Sheikh on Insta alongside a post featuring him and his three daughters.

“Missing you papa,” wrote Faysal Quraishi alongside a throwback photo of him with his dad.

Actor Ushna Shah on the other hand, shared a thought provoking note on her Insta page. “Having kids doesn’t make you a father, raising them does.” In the caption of this post she wished her mother, brothers and family members a happy Father’s Day. “Happy Fathers’ Day to my mom, my brothers – especially the eldest one – my sisters and even the cousins and uncles who stepped in to play the role [of a father] on occasion, I love you all so much!”

While singer and actor Junaid Khan shared an adorable photo of him and his little ones with a caption that left us teary. “Having a father like mine has always been one of my biggest strengths. So much to learn from him and when I apply that exact same learning as a father I realise how blessed I am to have him. Thank you ABBU for teaching us so much about life and fatherhood. And to my two beautiful boys, I hope and pray that I can always love you, support you and be there for you! Happy Father's to all the Fathers out there.”

Mohib Mirza also shared a post featuring her daughter’s name to mark the occasion on the photo sharing app.

While Ali Zafar shared an important lesson that his father taught him, which he has passed on to his son. Taking to Twitter, he wrote, "Never be distracted by what who says. Everything will fizzle out. Only the art will remain. Just keep doing your work.” One of my first lessons by a great father, professor of art and design Muhammad ZafarUllah. Passed on the same to my son Azaan Zafar. #HappyFathersDay2021."

Anoushey Ashraf wished her father in a similar fashion on Instagram. Posting a photo with him in the mountains, she wrote, "Happy Father’s Day to this legend, traveler, reader. sports enthusiast, fashion ‘icon’, comedian and the life of the party. Thanks for the open communication. Your time, generosity, wisdom, knowledge and patience with your children has paid off. Your kids are heroes. Well done. Love you till infinity. And then beyond. Thanks Dad, for everything.

While actor Imran Abbas shared a collage of him and his father with the caption, "'Tu muskura jahan bhi hai tu muskura.' Papa! You’ve left a void in my heart which can’t be filled till we meet again..Happy Father’s Day."

Aijaz Aslam and Faisal Kapadia, on the other hand, simply shared throwback photos of their fathers and wished their fans a happy Father's Day.
