During a recent interview with Siddharth Kannan, Sooraj Pancholi was asked whether Aditya Pancholi felt responsible for the way Sooraj Pancholi's image was being portrayed, the actor mentioned that his father would occasionally become “emotional” and “shed a tear or two”. He said, “Dad is very emotional. Sometimes he felt that because of his past mistakes, I went through these things. So maybe sometimes he would shed a tear or two.” 

The Hero actor mentioned that he and his father don't engage in lengthy conversations, but they communicate by exchanging glances and smiles. He said, “I share a look with him in the evening when I sit with him, that’s it. We don’t talk much. Till today, we don’t talk much.”

Sooraj further added, “I give him a nice tight hug, he stands up, gives me a hug, that is all we do and that is enough for him and enough for me.” 

Sooraj Pancholi reveals he does not agree with his father’s decisions in his life

Sooraj Pancholi also expressed that he may not see eye to eye with his father Aditya Pancholi's choices in life, but he has chosen to forgive him because he believes that “everyone makes mistakes.” He said, “My father has a certain image, a bad boy, a person who has done many wrong things. I don’t agree with it, of course. He is my father, I love him no matter what. I don’t agree with the way he has handled things in his life but, in a way I have forgiven him because I know that I am his only support in life.”
