But first, let us tell you what father-in-law, Anil Kapoor thinks of his damaad, Anand S Ahuja. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Anil Kapoor was asked how Anand S Ahuja is, as a son-in-law, Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga actor replied, “He’s not my son-in-law, he’s like my son... I’d say friend. We bond over health, fitness and loving our parents and family. He’s very work-oriented, so we talk about that.”

He further added, “Of course, there are things that I learned from him, since he has travelled so much, has studied in one of the best universities. These things I’m taking from him. He’s young, and comes up with great, fresh ideas where health is concerned. He has got a lot of depth and is very spiritual. It’s a combination of so many things we relate and connect to.”

In a throwback interview, Anil talked about his then would-be-son-in-law, Anand and shared, “What father-in-law! From the very beginning, I made it clear to Anand that I was going to be his friend and not his father-in-law. The ice melted even before it was frozen. Anand has been a part of our family for a very long time. We are pals first, and relatives later.” (Also Read: Daughter Rhea Trolls Father Anil Kapoor While He Texts His Wife Sunita, Anand Ahuja Enjoys The Show)

On the success of Anil Kapoor’s film, Fanney Khan, Anand wrote a heartfelt message to congratulate his father-in-law. He wrote, ““One is nothing, one can do nothing, one can achieve nothing without working, dear. If you are poor, work. If you are rich, continue working. If you are burdened, dear, with seemingly unfair responsibilities, work. Dear, if you are happy, keep right on working. Dear, idleness gives room for doubt and fear. Dear, of disappointment comes, please work. If your health is threatened, please work. Dear, when your faith and hope falters, work. Dear, when dreams are shattered and hope seems dead, please work. Dear, work as if your life were in peril. Dear, it really is. No matter what ails you, work. Dear, work with love, faith and patience. Work is the greatest remedy for mental and physical afflictions.” #SwamiRamBaba ••• Wise words and favorite saying of the real life Fanney Khan @anilskapoor ... Always the hardest worker in the room, and that too with the biggest, most mischievous smile on his face! Congratulations on a job well done!”
