He says, “As a parent, I do not want my wife to only be responsible towards our kid. I feel as a parent it’s our responsibility. In our society mostly there is a culture that mother has to compromise on work and take responsibility of our kids. But I’m not one, who agree to this. At times, when my wife goes to work and I bring my son along with me on the sets. We both equally put efforts to their upbringing.”
Waseem is married to Ayshaa Mushtaq and the couple is parents to two sons Mikhail and Reyaan. The actor is known for featuring in shows like Amrit Manthan, Aur Pyaar Ho Gaya, Dilli Wali Thakur Gurls, Bhagyavidhaata, Mere Angne Mein and Kahaan Hum Kahaan Tum.
He says fathers are great caretakers. “I feel a dad’s role in a child’s well-being is very important. Fathers teach many important lessons to a child, like how to be affectionate and supportive, and how to take care of everyone else by giving the best example, and all of this while being great examples themselves. Fathers are great caretakers, they make their little ones feel safe and secure. They teach their little ones to walk, to jump higher, and to always aim for the best. This is why is so important to recognise the labor of all of those involved fathers that are day by day supporting their families. Like my father was always around for me, I want to be same to my sons,” he added.
