Born on December 29, 1942, Rajesh Khanna or Kaka, became the first superstar of the Hindi film industry and was the indisputable king of the 70s. The actor had tied the knot with actress, Dimple Kapadia, in 1973 when the latter was just 16-year-old. Dimple was 15 years younger than Rajesh, and it was only a few months before her Bollywood debut when the couple had tied the knot. Dimple and Rajesh were blessed with two daughters, Twinkle Khanna and Rinke Khanna.
Rajesh Khanna was not just a talented actor, but also a loving hubby to his wife, Dimple and a doting dad to his daughters, Twinkle and Rinke. For the unversed, it was on July 18, 2012, when the nation had received the shocking news of Rajesh Khanna's demise. While the whole nation was in tears, for Twinkle, it was one of the darkest phases of her life.

Undoubtedly, the bond between a father and daughter is special and unparalleled, and Twinkle and Rajesh's bond is an epitome of it! The Father-daughter duo was extremely close to each other, and even to this very day, it's hard for Twinkle to digest the loss of her daddy.

Twinkle Khanna shared a warm bond with her father, Rajesh Khanna, and every now and then, she misses his presence in her life. On June 20, 2020, Twinkle Khanna had taken to her Instagram handle to wish her late father, Rajesh Khanna on Father’s Day. Sharing a monochrome picture from her childhood with her daddy dearest, Twinkle had shared that she knows Father’s Day is on Sunday, but for her, it will always be in December. Sharing the reason why, she had written:
"Father’s Day may be this Sunday but for me it will always be in December. He told my mother that I was the best present she could have ever given him as I entered the world, feet first, on his 31st birthday. He called me Tina Baba, never baby, and though I didn't realise it at that point, my upbringing was different from all the other young girls around me."
