In the note, the actress expressed that she wished he could hold her daughter Inaaya the same way.
Soha Ali Khan wrote, "How I wish he could have held Inaaya in his arms the way he held me when I was her age. He would have loved her and enjoyed her and she would have learned so much from him, things only he could teach her. But some things are not meant to be and we have no choice but to make the best of things. Happy birthday Abba. We miss you."
The actress shared two pictures. The other picture sees a grown up Soha posing gleefully by her father's side. Check out her post below:
