New Delhi:

Anil Kapoor marked his dad Surinder Kapoor’s birth anniversary in the most special way on social media. Surinder Kapoor was a renowned producer. Recalling how much his father was loved and respected by the members of the film fraternity, Anil Kapoor posted two throwback photos. They feature Surinder Kapoor with late actor Dilip Kumar from an event. The filmmaker was, back then, an “assistant” on the legendary star’s 1960 classic Mughal-e-Azam. “When the great Dilip Kumar looks with so much warmth and love in his eyes for my father… who was just an assistant in Mughal-e-Azam, shows how much my dad was loved and respected as a human being,” wrote Anil Kapoor in the caption. 

Anil Kapoor added that even today, his “immediate family” members and all those who had the opportunity to know and work with Surinder Kapoor still sing praises of him. His full caption read, “Till today, everyone from the immediate family and all his colleagues and members of the film fraternity misses him and always have good things to talk about him which pumps my heart with pride… Happy birthday, papa … Love you.” The actor added several red heart icons to his note for his father.
