It's hard not to notice that Hrithik Roshan and former wife Sussanne Khan are co-parenting their kids with dignity. The couple split in 2013 after being married for 14 years.
"We continue to be friends. So, in my case, being a single parent is not difficult. In fact, I wouldn't have it any other way. It seemed disillusioning at first, but it has turned out to be much better for how I bond with my sons. I have the most beautiful and honest equation with them now. Maybe we wouldn't have been this close, if things hadn't turned out the way they did," he says.

Does he miss having them around when he gets home?
"I am not missing out on them growing up. They are always here. Sussanne and I knew that we'd be mature about this. We didn't overthink; we went with the flow to be the best parents we could," says Hrithik, adding, "Moreover, I can't make peace with a turbulent relationship. I will find a way for it to be stable. All my relationships are symbiotic. They add value to both, my life and of those around me, whether it's Sussanne, friends or family."
The actor rang in his 43rd birthday on January 10 and believes he is living the best phase of his life.
"The 40s are an absolute blast. I am more aware of the person I am, my likes and dislikes. I am the king of my time. I create my own joy and am happy to be where I am. I have never had this much fun in before."
