For every 90’s kid, one of the cult comedy films was Suniel Shetty starrer Gopi Kishan. Starring Suniel in a double role, the comic action film was loved for his two different characters. On of the demure constable, Gopi and the other of the bold and strong brother Kishan. While the film surely was one of the classics, a dialogue of Suniel, ‘Mere Do Do Baap’ got extremely famous back then and it is still a memory for many 90’s kids. 

In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Suniel revealed that when they were shooting for Gopi Kishan, they had never thought that the film’s simple dialogues would become so famous. The Pailwaan actor wondered where the child actor from the film was who actually made the dialogue ‘Mere Do Do Baap’ extremely famous. Suniel even revealed that his daughter Athiya Shetty also had picked up the dialogue back then and used to repeat it to him constantly. The actor recalled how people picked up the dialogue and used to say it in public.

Suniel said, “I never imagined that such simple dialogues and situations would become so iconic. I wonder where the child actor is these days who shot to fame after that scene. He had a very naughty look but I don’t remember his name. Whenever people would see me in public, they would say Mere Do Do Baap. Even Athiya, after watching the film, started calling me, “Mere Do Do Baap” and I used to keep telling her “No no Athiya… it is not funny”. She just loved it and keeps repeating.”
