‘43 or 83, a man remains his father’s son’- Rakesh Roshan slams Kangana

The Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut conflict which began earlier this year, keeps surfacing time and again. Some days ago, Hrithik’s father Rakesh Roshan commented on the topic saying that if his son chooses to reveal the truth about the matter, it will shock everyone.

Kangana, not to be put down, retaliated by taking a dig at the ‘Mohenjo Daro’ being protected by his father. “I want to know why Indian men can’t stand for themselves. He (Hrithik) is 43 years old. Why does his father always have to come to his rescue? For how long will he keep hiding behind his big, influential father’s name? Why does daddy have to save his son?” the actress had remarked.

The veteran filmmaker and former actor, who has been maintaining a stoic silence at Kangana’s jibe, was waiting for “the right time” to speak. Rakesh Roshan has finally broken his silence in the matter and said that whether Hrithik is 43 or 83 years old, his son will always be a child for him.

The ‘Krrish’ maker proudly said, “I am still a working father and I proudly play an active part in my son’s life. And for those who find that unacceptable, let me say that for parents — children, whether 43 or 83 years old — are still children.”

Rakesh Roshan has lately been a great source of support for son Hrithik, who has been through several personal and professional setbacks. Defending his son, senior Roshan said, “Hrithik has not gone through any hard times. Ups and downs are a part of every person’s life. Whatever he is doing, he is doing with a smile.”

The filmmaker has made it clear that he will continue to stand by his son in this ongoing tussle between Hrithik and Kangana. He also added that Hrithik has taken the entire episode in his stride.
