6 Single Dads from Bollywood who broke the stigma revolving around men

Single parenting is something people fear since everybody aims at giving a proper lifestyle and exposure to their children under the shadow of a proper family. Both mom and dad are essential for the children upbringing and parenting in the world where maternal love and father’s values are inculcated into the child.

A child who considerably accepts such situations at a very young age and moves on with his parent happily, becomes both strong and an understanding individual growing up into mature adult.
