Raj Babbar is one of the finest actors of Indian cinema. He had made his acting debut in 1977 with the film, Kissa Kursi Ka. With his amazing persona and stellar performances, Raj had made a place in everyone’s heart with his charm. In an era where heroes were sceptical of playing negative roles, Raj had stunned everyone when he had played an antagonist in Insaaf Ka Taraazu.
In 1975, Raj Babbar got married to Nadira Babbar, daughter of noted theatre personality, Sajjad Zaheer. Raj and Nadira are proud parents to Arya Babbar and Juhi Babbar. During the shoot of Bheegi Palkein, Raj was smitten by Smita Patil and defying all the odds, the two got married. Due to childbirth complications, Smita Patil passed away in 1986 after giving birth to their son, Prateik Babbar.
Raj Babbar and his kids, Arya, Juhi and Prateik share a great bond with one another and exude perfect modern family vibes. We have often seen how the family comes together to celebrate every occasion of their lives. A few moments back, Raj Babbar’s daughter-in-law, Jasmine Kaur, wife of Arya Babbar penned a heartmelting note for her father-in-law.
Sharing a picture, holding his hand, Jasmine wrote, “Dear Papa, For you are a man of less words, Who never says what you feel or want. But you never get tired of asking “how are you doing bete?” You need something bete?” “It’s all gonna be okay baba” “I’m here for you bete”, I can’t feel more blessed and safe to know you are always looking out for me… I know you will always be holding my hand papa… I will always know this is Where I will always be nurtured and safe. Thank you for being you.”

This is us #lafamilia.” On Jasmine’s post, Raj Babbar had commented, “Thank you Jasmine! You all are my real strength that keeps me going. Blessings.”
On the occasion of Father’s Day 2017, Jasmine had wished Raj Babbar in the most adorable manner. Sharing a picture with him, Jasmine had written, “Papa… Neither an anchor to hold me back...nor a sail to take me there...but a guiding light whose love shows the way. The greatest gift anyone could get... A Father to look up to... A father who believes in me...who loves me like a daughter...holds my hand through n through. (P.S.
