In association with Gillette India

We all feel like we’ve won a lottery whenever we think of our dads. They’re hands down the most selfless and protective figures in our lives. Our old men have been carrying out their duty from the first time they ever counted our perfectly formed ten fingers and toes. 

On Father’s Day this year, Gillette thought of doing something special for all the one-of-a-kind dads out there. And what better way to celebrate our papas than to show them how much they mean to us? So Gillette got some of our favourite celebrities, sportsmen, and influencers to share their fondest childhood memories of their fathers, and it’s got us all emotional. 

As if there weren’t enough reasons for us to swoon over Angad Bedi already, the Bollywood actor is paying a loving tribute to his father with a super special gesture. In a minute-long video, Angad shares with us how his hero, his dad once taught him the valuable lesson of sportsmanship. He thanks his pitaji for never letting him give up, back when he was still struggling to make a mark in the big glamourous world of Bollywood. As he sports a new moustache and wears his father’s old jersey, Angad looks like a spitting image of the legendary cricketer. Check it out. 

After Angad knocked us dead with his gorgeous looks, it was fast-bowling all-rounder Shardul Thakur’s turn to get us all misty-eyed with his precious childhood memories of bike rides with his father. Every time they would step out, the cricketer recalls being in complete awe of his dad as he would get ready in front of the mirror. Above everything else, the cricketer vividly remembers being fascinated the most with the thought of shaving like his father. So this time, the cricketer tries to replicate his father’s dapper beard.  

We all remember being absolutely bewitched by that one defining action of our fathers, that we would later re-enact when no one was watching. For Indian cricketer Washington Sundar, it was when his dad would play cricket in the morning. The off-spinner would especially wake up early, to not miss the sharp look on his father’s face after a fine shave in the morning. And after all these years, Sundar has the perfect look in mind to impress his pa. We’re sure he’ll love it because he looks snatched!

This initiative by Gillette is taking us all down memory lane to visit some of the best moments of our lives which we’ll forever hold close to our hearts. Our dads undoubtedly have had the greatest influence on us, and loving them can never go out of style. So here’s wishing all the pops a Happy Father’s Day!
