When asked about being prepared to handle fatherhood, Rahul was quoted saying ‘A father is his child’s first best friend. So, I look forward to my baby becoming my best buddy. I am aware that there are sleepless nights ahead and a lot of daddy duties. I will seek tips and help from my father.’

I, too, went through a rough patch and I am glad that I have emerged stronger. As I said, this is indeed a divine piece of news for us and naturally, we are overjoyed. I feel the arrival of this baby will bring a lot of other good news in our lives. I want to get back to acting as well. It’s been six years since I heard the words —‘lights, camera, action’ — and now it seems like soon I may get to hear those words again, and then life will have come full circle for me’, he said.
