MUMBAI: Bollywood's dancing diva Madhuri Dixit-Nene says she misses her late father Shankar Dixit everyday.

The actress is currently seen as a judge on dance reality show "So You Think You Can Dance 'Ab India ki Baari'" along with choreographers Terence Lewis and Bosco Martis.

All the three judges and actor Riteish Deshmukh got emotional on the show after watching contestant Aryan Patra's performance along with his all-star choreographer Siddhesh.

The performance was aimed at showcasing “the hidden father’s love” which people forget.

“The father-child relationship is so beautiful. A role of a father in a society is shown so beautifully through the performance. In every family, the father is the head, he is the pillar of strength and everyone is dependent on him,” Madhuri said in a statement.

“A lot of times, children forget what their parents have done for them. Children must take care of their parents and respect them too. I miss my father everyday but today (after watching Aryan's performance), I miss him more. They have performed very beautifully,” she added.

Post the performance, Bosco couldn’t control his emotions and broke down. Terence and Madhuri tried to console him, and later his mother came on stage to calm him down.

“I had promised myself that I will never cry on a reality show but today Aryan just touched my heart. My father who could dance and talk today can barely say my name Bosco because of his paralysis,” Bosoc said.

Riteish appeared on the show along with Urvashi Rautela to promote their forthcoming film “Great Grand Masti”.

“Everyone who has a father please go and hug them today and tell them how much you love them, before it gets too late. Everyday I express my love to my Aai (mother) and tell her how much I love her,” he said.

Sharing his bond with his father, Terence said: “A lot of times what a father does for the family goes unnoticed but when a mother does it is always noticeable. I am the eighth child of my parents.

“I was in college and I used to travel by train. At every station, I used to play this game of getting off the station, but once I missed the train and I left my bag in it. I got so worried. My dad got a call saying they have found a bag in the train and hence my parents got worried."

“I came back home and was scared... When he came back and he saw me, he hugged me so tight and that's when I felt that I am important to them,” he added.

“So You Think You Can Dance 'Ab India ki Baari'” is aired on &TV.
