The ‘Race 3’ actor poured his heart out as he wrote, “I like to believe that my father lives on in me. In the lessons he taught us, in the love he showered on us, but most importantly in the values I believe in, that I recognize as his – loyalty, honesty, humility, empathy.”
Furthermore, he added, “Even in that day and age, he trusted his children to find their own voice and their own way, never dictating the direction of their lives or careers. We faltered, we fumbled, we picked ourselves up and brushed the dirt off, never giving up the search for our destinies. What he gave us is what I have always tried to give our children – faith in the power of goodness, dedication to honest hard work and the courage to weather the storms of their lives.”
Anil concluded the note on a happy note, thanking his father for all the memories. “Thank you Papa for the memories and the lessons. You live on in our minds and our hearts, today and always,” he added.Meanwhile, on the professional front, Anil will soon be seen in Raj Mehta’s ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’ with Varun Dhawan, Neetu Kapoor and Kiara Advani.
