Piku 2

Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone play father and daughter in “Piku.”

Kolkata — Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says daughters are the reason for the happiness of every household and they should be treated with care and warmth.

The 72-year-old actor spoke about the importance of daughters in one’s life while describing his experience of shooting for Shoojit Sircar’s “Piku,” in which he plays a father.

Bachchan posted some off-screen photos with Deepika Padukone, who enacts the role of his daughter in the film.

"These are not what could be seen in ‘Piku’; these are affectionate moments, off camera, but ones that reflect the relationship between the two — the gentlest of associations between the ‘lady of the house’ and the one that shall always have soft corners for them," he captioned the pictures.

"Daughters are special — very special. They become the soul of the home. They are the reason for the warmth that embraces us all; they conduct, command, secure, analyze, dictate, rule, govern and spread that tender thread which binds an entire family together. They are reason... They are consult. They are opinion. They are guidance," he posted on his blog.

The “Bhoothnath Returns” star said the love between a father and daughter is one which he can vouch for without any reservations, as it exists throughout the world.
