My father did (laughed).”While Pooja shared that ‘Singham’, ‘Golmaal 1’, ‘Simmba’ were some of her personal favorites, she shared another incident of how her father reacted to few of these films.”After we watched the film ‘Singham’, my dad got a temporary ‘Singham’ tattoo and ‘Aata Majhi Satakli’ was his takiya kalam for few days. My father is such a big fan that he also loved and laughed on the film ‘Bol Bachchan’. Yes, in our house, my father is the greatest entertainer and I have done Rohit sir’s film ‘Cirkus’ for my father. I hope, when the film releases we all get some extraordinarily entertaining response from papa,” Pooja signed off.
