Here's why Ajay Devgn's daughter Nysa did not speak with him for 1.5 years!

"Initially, she was really angry with me for over a year-and-a-half because," reveals doting dad Ajay Devgn

Every father-daughter relation is special in its own way and that of Ajay Devgn and his 13-year-old daughter Nysa is no different. In fact, the duo are extremely close to each other and the Padma Shri recipient often calls her his stress buster.

"Nysa is my biggest critic. She gives me such interesting perspectives that I find solutions to seemingly irresolvable problems each time I discuss something with her. Yug and Nysa have had a calming influence on me," he recently admitted in an interview, while promoting his upcoming flick Shivaay.

He even praised his children for helping him be calm and stay rooted to reality. "Nysa has always been the super-wise one and has great one-liners. She is such a sharp thinker and analyses everything," he admitted.

As for his 6-year-old son, he says, "Yug said something beautiful to me the other day. I was preparing to go to shoot and he asked me why I needed to go to shoot everyday and could I not take an off for one day. I tried to explain to him that I need to work. He asked me why I needed to work. I tried to simplify things and told him I needed to work so I could earn money for him and give him what he needs so he is happy. He turned around and said, ‘How can money make anybody happy?’ I was amazed at my five-year-old’s wisdom and had no answer for him but he got me thinking."

Ajay admits that "A child’s world is way simpler than ours and that teaches us so much. We have to be ready to learn as parents."

And even though he is extremely close to both his kids, it is quite evident that Nysa is his go-to guide. However, there was a time till last year, when Nysa refused to speak to her father. Yes, you read that right!

The 13-year-old did not talk to Ajay Devgn for almost two years and the reason will leave you amazed!

THIS is why Nysa was upset!

While talking about how his work kept him away from his family, Ajay Devgn reportedly revealed, "Initially, she was really angry with me for over a year-and-a-half because I was busy shooting for Shivaay and could not spend much time with her. But when she saw the trailers and the songs she told me, ‘Now I know why you were busy and I am extremely proud of you.’ That was possibly one of the best compliment for me for sure."

Incidentally, his new flick is also based around the relationship of a father and daughter, which in real life is extremely dear to the doting dad.

"Our children root us in our realities. Becoming a father, of course, changed me. Once the children are born, one’s home is a very different space. My children are the light of my life. To be honest, they are also my stress busters. One hug from Nysa or Yug can make me forget the days toil. They are my universe," he reportedly told DNA.

Why a father's presence is needed

Well, it is quite clear from his statement that his daughter needed him the most and on not finding him there became upset. This is, however, not an unnatural behaviour. Most girls get agitated when they are unable to see their fathers around, because here are the 3 most important things your daughter needs from you!

  • Only a father can instill the confidence that a girl is beautiful. When a father tells his daughter that she is beautiful, he reaffirms her worth and helps her become comfortable in her own skin.
  • Only a father can teach his daughter to value herself. When a father teaches his daughter that they are responsible for their own bodies and have a right to say 'No,' it imbibes a sense of confidence in a girl.
  • Only a father can teach his daughter to seek loving relationships. When a father sets the example of a perfect man by loving his own wife, he sets the bar high for future relations of his girl.
