3. Rahul Khanna from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.

Granted, kid Anjali wanted him to meet adult Anjali. But do you want your dad to turn up at your cool summer camp just because you caught a cold? So mortifying.


6. Virus from 3 Idiots.

Vinod Chopra Productions

I mean, his son committed suicide because he couldn't put up with the life of an engineer that his dad had imposed on him. And Virus has no regrets about it.


14. Kamal Mehra from Dil Dhadakne Do.

Excel Entertainment

Neglectful of his son's wishes and doesn't deem his daughter to be worthy enough of heading his company. Also, insensitive towards their mother. No one needs such subtle toxicity in their lives.

15. All the parents of various kids from Hulchul.

Venus Records

On one side we have Angar Chand who won't let his sons get married, promoted toxic masculinity and openly endorsed misogyny because of stupid ego issues. And on the other side we have Laxmi Devi who has manipulated her sons and grand-daughter into sabotaging a rival fam's relations, also because of ego issues.


17. Nandkishore Awasthi in Taare Zameen Par.

Aamir Khan Productions

Utterly unsympathetic and abusive towards his artistic kid and doesn't even bother finding out if his son is special. Would rather send him to boarding school out of spite.

18. Rahul's socialite parents in Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu.

Dharma Productions

In order to be a good son to these two, one has to play golf, win gold medals, become an architect, and join the family business. And by doing so, end up giving himself low self-esteem issues.


21. Ranjit Rai and Harbans Lal from Ishq.

Baba Films

They despise the poor and just want their children to marry each other because they're rich, regardless of their likes. Plus, they try to get a couple of poor kids killed.

24. And finally, this awesome threesome from Devdas.

First we have Devdas's mom who is suffering from reverse Oedipal complex and crushes on her own son. Then, Paro's mom who is obsessed with her neighbours and keeps pushing for her daughter's marriage to their son. And lastly Dev's dad, who keeps dropping shame-bombs on him.
