With our fathers being our superheroes, there is a lot that we can gift them on Father’s Day, which is just next week. And while we have already covered a lot of such gifts, what if you want to give him something that he really likes and not your representation of him. Now your father might be a sports lover, or ardent follower of political figures. Whatever be the case, today, we will be highlighting best gifts for your father that he can keep in his office desk or home and helps him feel connected to the personality he admires.
Salmaan Khan is one of the most famous Bollywood actors around, and he is much-loved for his antics. His movies have been blockbusters, but there are some characters that are played by him that stay with you long after the movie too. Be it Dabangg’s Chulbul Pandey, his romantic roles in movies like Maine Pyar Kiya or Bajrangi Bhaijaan’s Bajrangi, a movie which showed a humane side of India-Pakistan war. So if you want to thank your dad for his kindness or always remaining rooted in his approach, then there can’t be anything better than this action figure.
Shahrukh Khan or SRK, as he is fondly called, is not only a popular actor, but a great human being too. His movies have given an entire generation what being romantic really means, and he has played some iconic characters where he was the anti-hero, with equal ease (remember Baazigar, Darr or Don?). And if your dad feels inspired by SRK’s superb acting or the fact that the actor remains down to earth despite being so successful, this is what you should be gifting him.
Even though Rajnikanth is a south Indian film actor, his popularity transcends the entire nation and even the globe. Also known as Superstar or Thalaivaa, some of his movies show the larger-than-life persona, while many others show the ground reality. But there is no doubt that each of them takes you to a different place with his acting binding you in a spell. So Rajnikant’s action figure of him wearing a dhoti can be great idea if your father is his fan.
Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar
If cricket is a religion, then Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a God is a famous phrase, but it is true as well. Whether you call him SRT or Master Blaster or Sachin itself, it is evident that he has elevated the Indian cricket to another level and helping us become the country to beat in the competitive game. He also helped us win not one, but two cricket world cups – in 1983 and 2011. All in all, if your dad is a lover of all things cricket, then you cannot go wrong with Sachin Tendulkar’s action figure.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Speaking of winning the Cricket World Cup in 2012. We are sure you would know that the person who was instrumental for the same was Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Also known as MSD or Captain Cool as he maintains his coolness on the field quite well, is among the most successful captains in the world, leading India to several victories across all the formats. Be it the fast-paced T20 cricket, the ODIs or the good ol’ test cricket, he’s among the best wicket-keeper, batsman and captain around, i.e., a great all-round cricketer.
Virat Kohli is the perfect yin to the yang of MSD with its aggressive tactics and always winning attitude. He is carrying forward the legacy of Dhoni well by continuing to help India win several cricket tournaments. He has been the top ranked ODI batsman since October 2017, which is a testament to his abilities. Even off the field, he is quite popular, be it because of the brands he associates with as an ambassador or the fact that he is married to popular Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.
The current prime minister of India, Narendra Modi, is among the most popular politicians in the world. Be it his incredibly inspiring story of rising from being a tea seller to becoming a PM, or the fact that he is led the country from the front. He also has a legion of fans for this very reason, and if your father is also among them, then this makes for a particularly good gift on the Father’s Day.
In India, politics is considered as a dynasty politics, as it is exceedingly difficult to break into this world without belonging to any political family. But that is what New Delhi’s CM Arvind Kejriwal has been able to achieve. Who would have thought an IITian, who is not affiliated to any of the political parties in India, will form a party of his own – Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)? And that is not it, go on to win the Delhi’s elections not once, but twice in a row. Hence, his action figure makes for an amazing gift to prove that one can go and fight against the world for doing the right thing.
From the fictional world of movies to real-life celebs in the form of cricketers and politicians, we turn our attention to a popular literary character. Coming from the house of Tinkle magazine, a popular children’s magazine, Shikari Shambhu is a lazy shikari who is considered to be courageous by the world. Despite trying to run away from dangerous animals, he manages to get lucky with them and hence is considered as a hero. If the character provides a smile on the face of your dad every time he looks at it because it reminds him of his childhood, then this is the best gift you can give on him on the Father’s Day.
That brings us to an end of the list of best gifts for Father’s Day. Which one did you like the most? Do let us know, and hurry up as the special day isn’t faraway.
