What are the joys of watching your kids growing up?

“It`s absolutely a delight, it`s the biggest joy for any father. Earlier, when I used to finish my shoot, I wasn`t really interested in going home. But after my kids were born, I wait to finish work so that I can rush home and spend time with them."

“I want to hear them calling me daddy, dad, dada. The happiness is something that I can never measure,” he said.
