Did Kangana Ranaut call Hrithik Roshan a 43-year-old baby?

The Queen actress asks her former co-star to speak for himself rather than let his father Rakesh Roshan defend him.

Just when it seemed the Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut spat was dying down, the Queen (2014) actress's latest jibe appears certain to upset not just her Kites co-star, but also his father.

Recently, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan was asked to comment on the spat between his son and Ranaut. The senior Roshan did not delve into the fight but merely lauded his son for remaining calm and dignified when "someone" was spreading lies about him.

Asked what she made of Roshan’s comment, the fiery actress hit back in her own style. Ranaut was at the launch of Chetan Bhagat's latest novel, One Indian Girl, with her sister Rangoli, who did not want her to respond to the query, but the actress wasn’t going to miss the opportunity.

"Why can't men stand up for themselves? He is a 43-year-old. I can't understand why his father has to come to rescue him from all these small controversies," she remarked. 

All through the spat, Hrithik Roshan has largely only responded to Ranaut’s claims. We wonder if he will rise to the bait this time or continue to keep a dignified silence.
