Birthdays are special, more so if you have your beloved people around you to make your day even more memorable. Just imagine (more specifically for all the parents out here): It is 12 o’clock and you are about to enter your house after a long day at work and the moment you approach your gate, you see a handwritten note by your kid which says, “Happy Birthday Daddy, you are the best daddy in the world.” You will be flabbergasted, right?

Speaking about himself and his son, this is what the actor said in a throwback interview with IANS, “He (my son) is one lucky charm for me. Ayaan was born in January, and I signed ‘Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi’ in March and now it is ‘Naagin’. I guess I’m doing something right. He has brought in so much positivity into my life. I’m working really hard on myself, on my fitness and on my looks. I still have to do a lot of things, but I’m on the right path.”
What values does he want to inculcate in Ayaan? The Direct Ishq star shared, "I want to see Ayaan grow into a fabulous person. I would want him to make his decisions and choose his own career. Neha and I will also pray for the brightest future for him but he has to make his mistakes and learn from them. That's when he will love us back more than ever."
Embracing fatherhood has had a huge impact on Arjun. This is what he had shared in an interview, “I think fatherhood balances life. I had an individual perspective towards life. Now, my perspective has changed. My decisions are taken keeping him, and his future, in my mind. I am a happier person now. Usually, when you are stressed out, you are thinking about things that bother you. So when I go home and see him, I feel calm. He is my stress-buster!” (Must Read: Lisa Haydon Gets Married Again At Same Venue, Wearing Same Wedding Outfit, Holding 1-Year-Old Son)

He also loves to go for long drives with me.” He adds, “My father Sudarshan Bijlani taught me to keep smiling through the toughest phases, to never lose hope, and keep working towards your goal. I want my son to learn the same.”
