Mrinmayee Godbole, actress and daughter of Shrirang Godbole
About her father: My father is the ultimate person and a super hero for me. I can share everything with him. He criticises me in a very positive way. He is my role model.
What she plans to cook: If given a chance, I will make tea for him. When I stayed in Mumbai with him, I did not know cooking. He would ask me to make tea and everyday, I would make some mistake. Now I can make good tea, so I want to make it for him. Also, I will make Egg Curry for him as he likes it a lot, along with a healthy cake as he loves sweets, but cannot eat too much of them.
