From growing up holding onto our father's shoulders to turning into best friends over the years, the bond we share with our fathers is one beyond words and expressions. The teacher, the mentor, the biggest motivator - all of these define the role a father plays in each of our lives. However, time and again, we fail to appreciate and express our feelings to our fathers.
Father's Day is that day of the year when we get an opportunity to celebrate the special bond we share with our fathers, expressing our un-said love over time.
When words fail to describe what our fathers mean to us, songs help in letting our super-hero dads know how much they mean to us. Over the years, Bollywood has churned out some special numbers to portray the relationship between a father and his child.
As we celebrate Father's Day today, here are 7 Bollywood songs that you can dedicate to your father and make him feel special on this day!
Papa Kehte Hain (Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak)
It would be a crime to not include this song at No. 1 on the list. The track featuring Aamir Khan and sung by Udit Narayan is an epitome of a Bollywood song expressing a child's emotions to their father. Even after all these years, this song is undoubtedly to remain on top of everyone's playlist on Father's Day for decades to come.
Papa Mere Papa (Main Aisa Hi Hoon)
Featuring Rucha Vaidya and Ajay Devgn, this heart-touching song by Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, and Baby Aparna is sure to leave you in happy tears. This emotional song from the movie 'Main Aisa Hi Hoon' perfectly describes the relationship a daughter shares with her father.
