Divorced Dad Hrithik Roshan’s greatest joys are his sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan. You only have to go on the actor’s Instagram account to see that every time he’s with them – it’s like Hrithik has scored five stars for his latest film. Before his last film Kaabil released in January 2016, the boys saw the trailer and gave their verdict. “It’s nice,” Hrehaan said. For Hrithik, that was a high. “For me, my kids showering me with love is a high,” he said. “I was happy they didn’t feel forced to pamper me and say ‘It’s very good’ because I can’t take a negative comment. They know their Daddy is a strong guy and can take it. That’s a high.”
In a recent interview, the actor revealed some rather cool things about his relationship with his sons! Read on..
His sons’ favourite hero?
At their age, they dislike girls. But they’re in denial. They feel the attraction but don’t know what to do about it!
He’s a strict parent or a bumchum?
Both. I make sure they take responsibility for their decisions. I don’t stop them. I don’t protect them. I’m there to pick them up. One of our greatest weaknesses is our inability to take strong decisions. I’m making sure they develop the strength to become fearless.
On changing nappies?
I was not ready for fatherhood when they were born. Our relationship began when they turned two. I started understanding their character was in sync with mine. I saw us in a relationship of choice. We like each other as persons. Not because we’re father and sons. I like my sons and don’t just love them. I like them for the people they are. I appreciate and admire their characters.
Privileges of being Hrithik Roshan’s kids?
Where Hrehaan and Hridhaan are privileged is in their being born to a father who has experienced ups and downs and acquired a humble sense of life and the world.
