Sikandar Kher's real Dad appears
Onlookers often wonder why Sikandar Kher is constantly seen accompanying the Bachchans at important public events. The entire Bachchan family showed up for Sikandar's premiere on Thursday night….a rarity since the whole family seldom attends a premiere in which one of the Bachchans is not involved.
It was presumed that it was Sikandar's mom Kirron Kher's friendship with Jaya Bachchan which determined his place as Abhishek's adopted kid-brother.
However there's a much deeprer link between Sikandar and the Bachchans.
"My dad Gautam Berry, Amit Uncle and Bunty Uncle (Ajitabh Bachchan) were business partners in ABCL (now re-christened AB Corp Ltd). Our families have shared everything since then," reveals Sikandar.
"In fact my baby crib was the same one that Abhishek and his sister Shweta and then then two children of Bunty Uncle had used. After them it was handed over to Baby Kher, me. That's how close we've been.So I've even 'cribbed' with the Bachchan kids."
Later when Kirron Kher divorced Gautam the Bachchans continued to look out for Sikandar and his mom.
But Sikandar didn't lose touch with his real dad. "To me Gautam Papa and Anupam Papa are equally important. I don't want to call one my biological dad and the other my adopted dad. That does injustice to both.
Yes, I don't see Gautam Papa as often as I'd like to because he lives on the other end of town. But neither do I see that much of Anupam Papa because he's constantly traveling."
Gautam Berry surprised Sikandar by showing up at the premiere of Woodstock Villa with a group of his friends.
The son is overwhelmed. "He watched the film quietly and left. After the show I was surrounded by friends and family. Later he sent me an SMS which I'm going to treasure forever. I can't give out its full content. But when he said he was proud of me I felt ten feet tall."
Papa Gautam Berry and beta Sikandar are bonding again big time. "He's now teaching me to play golf. I feel extremely lucky to have my mom, my two fathers to guide me in my career. Plus the Bachchans who are like a family beyond my own family."Pyar Na Dil Se Hota Hai, Na Dimaag Se...
