New Delhi, Oct. 6 -- Recently when filmmaker Rakesh Roshan said that his son, Hrithik Roshan's revelations about an actress would shock the public, actor Kangana Ranaut asked why a father needed to speak for his son.

Said Kangana, "I want to know why Indian men can't stand for themselves. He (Hrithik) is 43 years old. Why his father always has to come to his rescue? For how long will he keep hiding behind his big influential father's name? He (Hrithik) is an adult and pretty much can handle his own controversies in show business. Why daddies have to save their son? I don't understand this."

Now, reacting to her comment for the first time, Roshan says, "I am still very much a working father and I very proudly take active part in my son's life. And for those who find that unacceptable, let me say that for parents, the children, whether 43 or 83 years old they are still children."

Of late, Hrithik has been through some serious personal and professional setbacks. However, Papa Roshan refuses to see the clouds in his son's life.

"Hrithik has not gone through any hard times. Ups and downs are a part of every person's life. Whatever Hrithik is doing, he is doing with a smile," he says.
