Soni Razdan also shared a number of previously unseen images of her father when he was younger. “My Daddy…My Hero,” Soni Razdan’s Heartwarming Note
Soni Razdan noted in the caption that her father was the “most joyful, fun loving, creative and life-affirming man.” "My daddy my hero. One of a kind. Original rockstar. Amazing architect. Of us and of buildings and of jokes and of just about everything….Daddy was the most joyful fun loving creative and life affirming man I’ve ever met. Our childhood was spent in a veritable alternate universe with daddy whenever he was around. We would either be regaled with stories he made up while relating them to us … about the good girl Neelam and her naughty little brother Gagan, or the imaginary Chunu, whom adults couldn’t see but we could - or he would play his violin for us - or imitate Groucho Marx … oh the list was endless,” read Soni Razdan’s long note.
The actress referred to her father as "a natural entertainer" and gave him credit for her ability in the performing arts. The way Soni Razdan's parents met was also disclosed. According to her, her father spent nine years in London "studying architecture" and "playing the violin for the famous dancer Ram Gopal." “And that’s how my mother and he met. That would be a story for my book when I eventually write it,” she added.
