Father-son relationships are always the tightest. Dads want to ensure they give their sons space, teach them and yet be their friend. Sons want to make dads proud and be as capable and manage the way their fathers did. This relationship is built on trust, honesty, stubbornness and a lot of respect. This father’s day here are five onscreen father-son duos that are definitely going to bring the magic of this bond to celluloid.
Paresh Rawal – Ranbir Kapoor: The Sanju trailer was released on 30th May and it looks very promising. Yes, it is all about Sanjay Dutt but the most touching scenes are when he is vulnerable and honest to his father. Paresh Rawal portraying the role of Sunil Dutt and Ranbir Kapoor as Sanju are definitely going to be an interesting watch on screen. The much-awaited biopic will be released on 29th June 2018.
Sanjay Dutt – Ali Fazal: Sanjay Dutt and Ali Fazal were recently spotted heading to Lucknow airport to begin shooting for Deva Katta’s Prasthaanam. The film that ruled the South Indian box office a few years ago is being remade with Sanjay Dutt, Ali Fazal, Manisha Koirala and Amyra Dastur. The talented Munna Bhai actor will play father to the Victoria and Abdul actor. Is it just us or do they look a little similar too?
Amitabh Bachchan – Aamir Khan: This Thugs of Hindostan duo are going to be fun to watch on screen because they are both fantastic actors in their own right.

The film also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh and is set to release this Diwali.
