Bollywood actor Rahul Dev has been dating actress and model Mugdha Godse for over eight years now. The actor found love again in Mugdha after he lost his first wife Reena, who died of cancer in 2009. Recently in an interview, Rahul opened up about his role as a single father to his son Sidhart and about his relationship with Mugdha. The actor revealed that he had his own inhibitions about dating Mugdha who is 14 years younger than him. He thought the age difference between the duo was 'unfair.' While talking to Connect FM Canada he said, "She is young. I have just crossed 50 and she is yet to touch 40. So, I used to feel, ‘Is this relationship unfair?"

Known for his roles in films including Asoka and Omkara, the actor did not have it the easy way. Almost a decade ago, Rahul found himself in a very tough spot when he had to fulfil all the responsibilities single-handedly after Reena's death. He shared that it was not easy to "start all over again after being a widower."

"Parenting is not easy at all. Women have a big hand in raising children, the way they understand children, probably because it comes out of them. The kind of patience they have for children, I tried a lot, but there were times when I would lose my cool, my frame of mind. I had to try to be both mom and dad. When I would go to parent-teacher meetings at school, I would see mostly mothers. Rarely I would meet one guy but his wife would be there. At that time, I would feel a sense of deep insecurity. I would feel where are the men," said Rahul. 

He added, "It's very painful. A lot of it I don't want to remember. A lot of it I would not wish on anyone, that kind of situation. It looks easy in films, so many times films show that someone became a widower. But starting again is not easy at all."
