15 Super Dads: Hrithikh Roshan
This fortnight we bring you one celeb father everyday who deserves to be celebrated for his parenting skills and gives all dads #fathergoals to live up to. Today in focus is Bollywood’s Greek God, Hrithik Roshan.
Claim to fame: One of the highest paid Bollywood actors who has a massive fan following India as well as internationally, Hrithik Roshan hails from an illustrious film family and is the son of celebrated Bollywood actor and filmmaker Rakesh Roshan. His first film Kaho Na Pyaar Hai itself earned him two Filmfare awards for Best Actor and Best Male Debut. He followed up his success act with Koi Mil Gaya, Dhoom 2, Jodha Akbar and as India’s first super hero in the Krrish series. He will soon be seen in Kabil, where for the first time he plays a blind man out to avenge his wife.
Fatherhood: This Indian actor who is often compared by the tabloids to the handsome Greek gods may have parted ways with his wife of eleven years, Sussanne Khan, but that does not stop him from being the perfect dad. Despite being busy with big-budget films back-to-back, he makes loads of time for his two sons Hridhaan and Hrehaan. From globetrotting across exotic locales to working out together, the trio have done it all! In a recent interview to a leading tabloid, he said, “I’m their parent, provider and protector. When I am with them I don’t look for hugs but focus on how I can educate, inspire and stimulate them.”
Lessons learnt: Divorce can be a trying time for every couple, but it is even worse for their children who have to face the separation of the two people they love and respect most in the world. The separation of a married couple does not mean they should stop loving and caring for their children. If children are your greatest joy, then that feeling must not change one bit after divorce. In fact, you must make more time for them to help them cope with the grief and bitterness of the divorce. Hrithik sets a perfect example of a divorced dad who ensures that there is not one sad moment when his children are with him and leaves no stone unturned to ensure their growth and happiness!
