Mumbai: The hectic shooting schedules of daily soaps left little time for Yash Tonk to spend with his daughter Pari, and the actor feels he missed important growing up years of her life.
"For years I had been shooting for daily soaps, as a result I didn`t get time. I have seen my kid just growing like this, before I could realise," Yash, who is currently seen in Zee TV`s historical show `Shobha Somnath Ki`, told reporters.
"I missed those growing up years and now she is eight years old," he added.
The actor forayed into television with `Just Mohabbat`. However, he rose to popularity with Ekta Kapoor`s shows like `Kasautii Zindagi Ki`, `Kesar`, `Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi` and others.
Later, he took a break from daily shows and tried to make up for the time he missed spending with his family.
"I travelled a lot and shot for films that will never see the light of the day. I did reality shows in between. And when I was not working, I made it a point to be with my family and make up for the time lost," he said.
