Yesterday, during the broadcasting of Filmfare Awards, the moment when the jury announced the name of Best Actor Female, Deepika, who was looking gorgeous in red floral dress didn’t said thanks to the director, producers and the co-actors but had given an emotional moment to the jam-packed hall which will not be forgotten by anyone.
Here is that inspiring letter, from a father to her daughters Deepika and Anisha which Deepika read at the 61st Filmfare Awards 2016:
As you stand on the threshold of life’s journey, I want to share with you some lessons that life has taught me. Decades ago, as a little boy growing up in Bangalore, I started my tryst with badminton. In those days, there were no stadiums and courts where sports people could train. Our badminton court was the wedding hall of the Canara Union Bank near our house, and it was there that I learned everything about the game. Every day, we would wait to see if there was a function in the hall, and if there was none, we would rush there after school to play to our hearts’ content. Looking back, I realise that the most important thing about my childhood and adolescent years was my refusal to complain about a lot in life. I was thankful for the few hours a week we had the opportunity to hit the shuttle back and forth. In fact, the foundation on which I based my career and my life was the refusal to whinge or whine about anything. And that is what I want to tell you my children, that there is no substitute for perseverance, hardwork, determination and passion for what you choose to do. If you love what you do, nothing else matters — neither awards nor compensation, not even the gratification of seeing your face in newspapers or television. When I won the All England Championship, the prize money in badminton became significant — £3,000 — a huge amount in those days. But that did not distract me from the sheer joy of having been instrumental in putting India on the global map of this game. Deepika, at eighteen, when you told us that you wanted to shift to Mumbai for a career in modeling, we felt you were too young and too inexperienced to be alone in a big city and in an industry we knew nothing about. In the end, we decided to let you follow your heart and thought it would be cruel to not give our child the opportunity to go after a dream that she lived and breathed for. If you succeeded, it would make us proud, but even if you didn’t, you would not have any regrets that you did not try. Deepika, I have learned that you can’t always win in life, that everything you want might not come your way. Those events don’t always turn out as you want them to. To win some, you have to lose some. You have to learn to take life’s ups and downs in your stride. The amount of effort that I put in my game never varied from the first day till my retirement. Even during my toughest times, I focused on what I had, instead of dwelling on what I did not. I had the ability to make the best of the worst circumstances and remain steadfast to my goal. Remember how I constantly tell you both about the importance of making your way up in the world without waiting for your parents to pull strings? I believe it is best for children to work hard to make their dreams come true and to not have things handed to them on a platter. When you are home visiting us, Deepika, you make your own bed, clear the table after meals, and sleep on the floor if there are guests at home. If you occasionally wonder why we refuse to treat you like a star, it is because you are our daughter first and a film star later. The cameras that follow you everywhere and the arc lights will eventually fade and what will remain is the real world. Strive to generate positivity around you even though you are too new and too small a player to effect a big change. You are in an industry where there’s always going to be big money, but I believe that it is important to try to be the best in whatever you do regardless of the money. The things that really matter in life are relationships, honesty, respect for your parents and elders. Material success is important, not fundamental to happiness and peace of mind. I can’t tell you enough about the rejuvenating power of prayers and a little faith. Spare a few minutes of your day to close your eyes and meditate, to think about God and you will see how much faith in His power will strengthen you. In the end, when your career is behind you, what remains is family, the friends that you have made. Live a life that is healthy and one that will allow you to live with your own conscience. Everything else is transient. And remember, no matter what, we are always going to be there for you.
The moment when Deepika finished reading this letter, the entire hall stood on their feet and starts clapping for the few seconds. Along with her, every single person in the hall got emotional and had tears in their eyes.

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is the present king of social media. He is the most popular celebrity on almost every social site. Now, he has achieved another milestone when his numbers of followers on Facebook have reached to 23 million. On this occasion, Big B is overwhelmed after receiving this gratitude from his extended family and thanked them on his official Twitter account.
T 2136 – On FaceBook 23 MILLION followers !! BAAADUMMBAAA ! 23 !! THATS 2+3=5 ..5TH OF FEB ..Abhisheks birthday ! pic.twitter.com/HeRdufoLam
‘Piku’ actor has posted tweet in which he co-relate this 23 million to his son and actor Abhishek Bachchan’s birthday. He wrote that 23 is actually means 2+ 3 is equal to 5 and 5th February is the birthday of Abhishek. What a co incident it is.
Well, Amitabh is now the most followed Bollywood celebrity on both Twitter and Facebook. On micro-blogging site Twitter, Big B has more than 20 million followers and now his legacy has continued on Facebook too.
At this age of 73, Amitabh is the most active star not only in his works but also in the virtual world. His late night’s posts and tweets are very popular among the fans. He frequently connects with the fans to which he calls his ‘extended family’ and shares his thoughts, poems, films and the sweet old memories. Recently he shared his family picture including Abhishek, Jaya Bachchan, Sweta Nanda, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and granddaughter Aaradhya Bachchan, who were in Maldives celebrated Abhishek’s birthday.
If we talk about his work front, still now he is so active and working in several films. Few days back, he had got best actor’s award in a prestigious award show for his performance in ‘Piku’ which means he is still giving a tough fight to the young lads of the B-Town.
Now, he will be next seen in Sujoy Ghosh’s ‘Te3n’ which also have Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vidya Balan in pivotal roles. Apart from this, he have the sequel of his own suspense-thriller ‘Aankhein’.
Sunny Deol starrer action packed film ‘Ghayal Once Again’ has yesterday hit the screens. This is the most ambitious film of Sunny, who has given his 2 years to this project, but Day one of the film at the box office was not upto the expectations of the makers. It has only collected Rs 7.20 crore, which is considered as a moderate start.
‘Ghayal Once Again’ is the sequel of Sunny’s 1990 hit action-drama ‘Ghayal’, that was the blockbuster. The makers have tried their best to co-relate this second installment with the earlier one, but they have failed to match up the similar heights what ‘Ghayal’ achieved. Although, Sunny this time has taken the extra responsibility of writing and direction of the film but the critics had not given positive response to this action-packed film.
On day one, the occupancies were around 40-50 percent and there was not seen any kind of buzz about Sunny’s film as it was happened earlier. Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Airlift’ is still strong after its 3rd week and giving tough fight to ‘Ghayal Once Again’. The other release of the week ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ had got average reviews and done just par business on day one.
It has said that Sunny has invested a big amount of his life in making of this film and he had to mortgage his Mumbai studio for the film but the way day one went, it is not good news for Sunny as he had expected more than this.
Now, all eyes are on coming weekend which is very crucial for ‘Ghayal Once Again’ and Sunny. The collections would surely gone better and anything around Rs 30 crore plus weekend will ease the pressure from the distributors but for that, the film has to do exceptionally well in coming two days.
