Gritty single Moms of Bollywood who are Showing us How it is Done!

Motherhood is a complex, beautiful and challenging journey. In a typical family, a mother and a father share responsibility and contribute towards the upbringing of a child. However, situations are not always ideal. When marriages don’t work out and couples get separated, the children are often the most affected parties in the whole ordeal. Children take time to understand the complexities of adult relationships and miss the other parent’s love and care. In addition to that, our society discriminates children of single parents and it again becomes the responsibility of the parent to protect their child from all of this as well.

Shouldering all these things single-handedly is no mean task. But, today, there are many single moms who are making sure that their children are bought up impeccably. As we salute all these superheroes, let us take a look at some single moms in Bollywood who are doing a great job.
