They might not be real, but are definitely influential. Though we are not related to them, yet we truly understand their affection, tears and fears.

We are talking about the small screen fathers. In Bollywood, mothers bask in the limelight, but in the case of television - dad is the latest buzz. Be it the strict Balwant Walia from Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin to the supporting Bhairav Singh of Balika Vadhu, the industry seems to be celebrating essence of fatherhood.

Nivedita Basu, vice-president, scripted programming, Colosceum Media decodes the trend, "Television has been following Bollywood in the past, but now things are changing. We try to be in sync with a new audience who do not like to see super filmy stuff on television. Even producers prefer to experiment and create their own characters. It's great that father's are getting their due importance on television. TV is woman-dominated medium and as people say, girls are always closer to their fathers."

So while you spend Father's day with your Pa, we bring you the on and off screen side of prime-time dads and what makes them popular'

 Vasant, Balika Vadhu.

Satyajit Sharma aka DK Punj is earning accolades for his chemistry with his onscreen son Karan Kundra, better known as Arjun Punj. Satyajit the perfect Papa face is single in real life.

Satyajit says, "DK Punj is a flamboyant businessman, who believes in achieving, whatever he has ever aspired for. He had a bad marriage and got separated from his wife. DK brought up his son alone and no wonder, Arjun is his weakness. His son is the only softer side of his persona. Both of them connect at a very human level."

DK doesn't think very highly of women and wants Arjun to follow him. Is this justified? "As an outsider, you can be judgmental over the issue and perceive DK as a dominating figure. As a father, I think DK can justify himself. Arjun is his most prized possession and he is just acting possessive. He doesn't want his son to get caught in the obvious trap of a relationship and suffer like his father."

Satyajit plays a would-be father in another serial Balika Vadhu. How is to do so many roles in a similar genre? " It's quite liberating as an actor to be split between Vasant and DK. I am living two states of fatherhood at the same time."

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it ... Dad
