Drashti Dhami Father

Drashti Dhami was born on 10 January 1985 in Mumbai, India. She currently resides in Borivali, Mumbai along with her mom, dad, elder bro and sis – in – law. She hails from a very conservative Gujarati family and is the only girl in the family. She completed her schooling from St. Immaculate Girl’s High School in Borivili after which she opted for a degree in Sociology from Mithibai College, Mumbai.

Drashti was very keen on acting. But when she got an offer to dance in a music video, she had to seek permission from 10 different family members and particularly from her dad. Her dad is very strict and is extremely possessive about her. Initially, he was dead against it. It wasn’t easy for her to convince her dad. It was her cousin who supported her and convinced her dad who then agreed to it.  ‘My dad still stands by my side even today whenever I have to take an important decision on my career’, said Drashti. And now, her family’s support has made her a big star today!
