“Every Ramzan till he was alive, Abba was entrusted with one Iftar chore: to cut fruits for the whole family. He would sit down at sharp 4 in the evening, slicing papaya, watermelon, melon, bananas patiently.”

Siddiqui also wrote that his father would chide anyone seen yawning or “lying like a sloth”. He would share nuggets of wisdom and life lessons with everybody, as seen in a video Siddiqui shared of his father from his last Ramazan. “His words, his knowledge, and his love hold me in good stead after he has gone,” wrote the actor.

He shared some poetry by his father in the video. For Siddiqui, poetry is subjective and open to multiple interpretations. The Ye Dil Mera actor translated the verses by his father and wrote, “In this battle of love, there can never be absolute win or defeat. If you have a happy ending, feel good about it but when your love remains unfulfilled, those love stories become legends the world recounts and remembers till eternity.”

Have a look at the video:

“The easiest way to appreciate life is with acceptance; go with the flow. Don’t swim upstream, don’t cross your threshold, don’t be murky, and don’t be a whirlpool. A wave that is light and airy, in conjunction with the river is enough to live by,” he continued and asked his followers what their interpretation is of the poetry.

Fellow celebrities also dropped by in the comment section, including Aijaz Aslam and former model Fia Khan.

The Meri Adhoori Mohabbat actor often shares his poetic side with his followers on Instagram and we now know where he gets it from.

The generation that grew up watching the infamous Meray Paas Tum Ho probably knows him as Shehwaar, the businessman who takes housewife Mehwish into his grips.

But if you have been following him since the beginning of his career, you will know Siddiqui has been a star since his first drama in 1992 called Uroosa where he impressed us all with his remarkable performance. The actor previously expressed gratitude for small screen projects that made him who he is today.
