Filmmaker Rakesh Roshan is going through the worst phase of his life, what with serious health issues and now his daughter Sunaina making shocking allegations of domestic violence. In an outspoken and, if one may say so, indiscreet interview Sunaina has accused her father of slapping her for wanting to marry a Muslim man.
However a very close friend of Rakesh Roshan rigorously repudiates the accusation. “It is absurd to suggest that Guddu (Rakesh Roshan’s nickname) would object to his daughter seeing a Muslim man. Guddu’s son (Hrithik Roshan) was married into a Muslim family for 14 years. There was never a moment of stress between Guddu and his son’s father-in-law Sanjay Khan. They co-existed as one happy family. Guddu and Abbas (Sanjay Khan) celebrated Eid and Diwali together.”
So what is the main source of stress in the father-daughter relationship? Says Rakesh’s friend, “I don’t pry into his personal affairs. But from what we gather, Sunaina is a restless soul. She has chosen wrong partners in the past. All Rakesh and Pinky(Mrs Rakesh Roshan) want is for her to settle down in life.They don’t want her to make the wrong choice again. I think every parent wants that.”
Amen to that.
