In changing times and with modern kids, parenting is extremely tough these days. Mothers and fathers give their blood, sweat and tears to raise their children into fine young women and men. While moms are praised and thanked quite often, the role of dads is a bit underrated. In recent times, the stereotype of fathers being the bread-winner outside the house is being broken. Here are a few examples of single dads who take care of their children and provide the love of both of the parents on Zee TV and ZEE5 Originals.
