'Family Karma': Monica's strong relationship with her dad Raj has fans tripping on their father-daughter goals
Monica Vaswani's dad Raj Vaswani is turning out to be everyone's favorite father figure. We just got a brief sneak peek of him in the pilot episode when Monica face-timed her father, who was busy shopping for her in India.
We finally got to see more of Raj in the second episode, and we can’t deny that Monica and her father's relationship with each other is how every father-daughter relationship should be.
In the latest episode, we see Monica and her father head out for lunch. They sit and discuss their lives when Monica asks her father If he is interested in dating. He thinks for a bit and explains to her that he isn’t interested in it and his main focus is her.
In their green room interview, he breaks down as he recollects how his divorce with Monica's mother left him feeling guilty because he felt that he was ruining Monica's life by divorcing her mother.
Although Monica quickly reassures him that it isn't true, he still refuses to believe her and continues explaining how divorce was a relatively new thing and a taboo in the Indian community when he got divorced.
He felt outcast by everyone and that made him step back and avoid society. Nevertheless, he was always present for his daughter irrespective of what was happening between him and her mother. Monica proudly announces that her father is her best friend and he beams with joy when he hears it.
Fans were touched on seeing such a beautiful and strong bond between the father and daughter. One fan wrote, "Monica and her dad are honestly one of the few Desi daughter-father relationships I see that's healthy and loving.... y'all got a great blessing fam #FamilyKarma."
Another fan tweeted, "Monica and her father, Raj (I think that’s his name), have such a beautiful relationship. #FamilyKarma."
"Watching #FamilyKarma behind everyone else. Watching @MonicaVaswani and her Dad together. Love them!! It's horrible to persecuted for something that is so NORMAL. You can see the pain and anguish in his eyes Seeing the way Monica's dad loves his daughter is EVERYTHING," expressed another fan.
