A girl never grows old for her parents. When a man becomes a father, he realises all the flaws he had and tries to bring a change in himself and become a better version of himself for his daughter. A daughter is the most cherished treasure for a father and vice versa. Every girl dreams to marry a guy like her father. No matter, whether you share a close bond with your father or you just co-exist, the respect a girl holds for her father can never be described in words. Bhumi Pednekar, who lost her father at a very young age, tries to pen down her feelings for her father.

Bhumi Pednekar, who had started in the entertainment industry as a casting agent, has made a huge name for herself in the world of films as an actor. She is an amazing actress and makes sure to pick up some different and challenging roles. From being lady, who is fat and happy with her body type in Dum Laga Ke Haisha to playing the role of a 60-year-old in Saand Ki Aankh, the actress has time and again shown her versatility. However, not many people know that Bhumi has been through worse times at the age of eighteen when she had lost her father due to cancer.
May 19, 2020, marks as the birth anniversary of Bhumi Pednekar’s late father, and this made her miss him even more. Bhumi took to her Instagram handle to share a series of pictures of her dad with her and her family and bared her heart out in the caption. The actress talked about how much she misses her father and how she finds him in everything she does. Her caption can be read as “Happy birthday Papa. I miss you everyday, every minute and every second... But then, I see you everywhere ... When I look at myself, my eyes just like yours... When samu smiles,her smile is full of that same mischief ... When we trouble mom and she says - you both are just like Satish. When we do some good,she says - you both are just like Satish.”
The actress then talked about how her mother still blushes remembering her husband, and how her uncle tells them about her father’s tales, “When mom speaks about you she blushes like a teenager, that small little tear lights up her eye, with happiness and undying longing and love for the love of her life. When Subhash kaka tell us about your epic escapades and courage. Your kindness and generosity - ‘Arre our Satish was a king with a heart of gold'- he says.”
Bhumi then recalls all the festivals and how her family misses her father at every occasion. She added, “Every Ganesh Chaturthi when Pinky Bua misses her brother and baddi her son - ‘aarti toh Satish karta tha', ‘Satish ke pasand ke aloo puri’ were made every time with so much love . Every Eid at Rashid kaka’s and the fun we had, I’m sure he misses his friend and all your pranks.” (Recommended Read: Smriti Khanna Turns This Dialogue Of FRIENDS Into A Lullaby For Her Little Daughter, Anayka, Watch)
The actress then reminisces all the small things that make her miss her father even more, and how he was a doting father to her and her sister. She further added, “I remember each morning that you woke me up with that bitter karela juice,all the sour world news and your sweet sweet smile. I remember each night that you stayed up with me during my exams... I remember every-time you fed me with yours hands... Every-time you prepared that hot water bottle for my cramps... Every-time i manipulated you for the things I want ... Every-time you pretended like, nothing I said was false ... Every time you picked me up from school and we listened to Madonna on our way back... Every-time you picked me up in life and taught me a new hack... Every-time I pretended to sleep post our bedtime... Every-time I sneaked out of the house which was a crime, And now I know you knew it all, you let me make my mistakes cause you knew life was short. Every cricket and football match that we watched...”
The actress then concluded with all the good things her father taught her and with a wish if he was here to see everything, “Every birthday of ours,where you made us feel like we were gods ... Every failure of ours was celebrated and every success learnt from. You taught us to love all and made us strong. Every time they say,you both are just like Him. I miss you even more cause I wish you could have seen the ‘You’, that we have become. #SatishMotiramPednekar #HappyBirthdayPapa #MissYou.”
Recently, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Bhumi had opened up on the huge loss and had shared, "We were quite young. I was 18, Samiksha was probably 15 when we lost our dad due to cancer. We saw him through prolonged sickness and really suffer a lot. Obviously, losing a parent is never easy and I had a wonderful father. He was just a father. We miss him every day but my mom is made of something else, she really got us together. I think just us as a family, we went into warrior mode post that."
