Ac­tor Ro­hit Roy (right) leaves no stone un­turned to play the dot­ing dad he is, to his 14-year-old daugh­ter, Kiara Bose Roy. To­day, on Fa­ther’s Day, the ac­tor tells us what makes his daugh­ter so spe­cial and sets her apart.

“I’ve heard all the sto­ries of how it’s tough to han­dle these teenage kids but I’ve been lucky that Kiara is not one of those er­ratic, de­mand­ing kids. She’s never had any un­nec­es­sary de­mand or tantrums. I’ve never had to rep­ri­mand her other than cor­rect­ing a few things,” says Ro­hit, who had only once in­dulged his daugh­ter by gift­ing her an iphone6.

Ask him if Kiara gets af­fected by peer pres­sure and brings those is­sues back home, Ro­hit says that she dis­cusses ev­ery­thing with him and his wife, Manasi. “Since she’s the only child, our lives re­volve around her. She dis­cusses more stuff with Manasi, but I’ve told Kiara that I am her friend first and ev­ery­thing else comes later.”

More­over, Ro­hit ad­mits that he’s pos­ses­sive of Kiara and if he’s told that she’s dat­ing some­one, he would re­act quite un­ex­pect­edly. “I won’t be able to say any­thing. I will prob­a­bly blow my top and would want to kill that guy. But, then, af­ter I calm down, I’ll meet the boy to fig­ure out if he is wor­thy to be in Kiara’s life or not. I’m a cool fa­ther that way, though my wife re­fuses to ac­cept that.”

So is there any­thing that Kiara hates about him? “My tem­per. She says, ‘Papa you have to be pa­tient.’ For her, I am try­ing to change this trait,” says the Kaa­bil ac­tor.

Mu­sic com­poser Dar­bar (right) says work­ing with film­maker San­jay Leela Bhansali in his film Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam that com­pletes 18 years to­day was a once in a life­time ex­pe­ri­ence. He re­calls that the film­maker had heard the scratch of the track Tadap Tadap Ke nine times in loop and burst into tears af­ter that.

“I had writ­ten Tadap Tadap Ke for an­other film but the di­rec­tor had said, ‘aise gaane to har koi bana deta hai’. Not be­ing able to tol­er­ate the in­sult, I had quit that project im­me­di­ately. There­after I took it to San­jay,” says Is­mail, adding, “San­jay con­tin­ued lis­ten­ing to the track and I
