Sussanne will divorce Duggu, best kept B’wood secret becomes official
Actor Hrithik Roshan and his wife Sussanne have decided to end their 17-year-long relationship and he made the formal announcement on Friday.
‘Sussanne has decided to separate from me and end our 17-year relationship. This is a very trying time for the entire family,’ Roshan said in a statement released this evening. He requested the media to respect his privacy. Roshan married Sussanne, the daughter of Bollywood Sanjay Khan, in 2000.
They have two young sons. Hrithik apparently is in search of a new home due to his divorce with Suzanne Roshan. This comes after four months of speculation about the split.
To start with, the two were believed to have been living separately for three-four months. Speculations peaked ever since the news of Sussanne moving into her parents Sanjay and Zarine Khan’s Juhu home, broke. Also, they haven’t made any public appearance– like they used to– for some time now. Interestingly, she was also missing from all the public events related to Hrithik’s recent hit, Krrish 3. In September, at Roshan Sr’s birthday party, Sussanne made a blink-and-miss appearance. Apparently, she arrived late with her brother Zayed and parents, Sanjay and Zarine Khan.
More recently, Sussanne confirmed Hrithik’s presence at the opening of her new store (on 11 December) but of course that didn’t happen since he is in the US. Although things have taken an unpleasant turn, Hrithik insists that he still believes in marriage. ‘I do not wish this news to disempower my fans and the people about the institution of marriage in any way. I am a firm believer in this institution and respect and honour it at the highest level,’ says the actor.
