“Given a chance, I’d babysit AbRam life-long,” Shah Rukh Khan once tweeted. We wouldn’t disagree, given how cute little AbRam is. Or Taimur, for that matter, whose photos instantly go viral, no matter if he’s dozing off on his daddy’s shoulder or making faces at the camera. Undoubtedly, the lives of these famous fathers of Bollywood have changed immensely after fatherhood. Take it from Shahid Kapoor himself: “I was cocky in my twenties, buying sports cars, dating actresses, trying to live the life,” he revealed in our December issue. Today, that boy has transitioned into a loving man and doting father whose selfies with his daughter Misha prove just how content he is.
Then there’s Kunal Khemu and his daughter Inaaya Naumi. “I think there’s something about a father-daughter bond. Kunal is very protective about her and he actively steps in to take care of her,” Soha Ali Khan told us in an interview. “Every time he plays the guitar, Inaaya is beaming with joy. He’s very good with her.”
