Hrithik Roshan took everyone by surprise when he announced split from his then-wife Sussanne Khan after 17 long years. They have always maintained a dignified silence on the matter. The couple has two children–together- Hrehaan, 11 and Hridhaan, 9. And when it comes to their children, both of them have not let their personal differences affect the lives of their children.
In fact, in an interview with a leading daily, Sussanne was quoted as saying, “We do chat a lot even though we don’t hangout together anymore. But above all, we are very committed to our children. We are respectful towards each other. When children are involved, it’s important to put our differences aside and protect them.”
The couple are often seen taking time off from their busy schedules to take their children on mini vacations or dinner/lunch outings. Yesterday night too the estranged couple was snapped outside a late night eatery in the city with their children.
While Hrithik looked handsome as usual in a blue shirt, patchwork faded jeans with red sneakers, black cap and nerdy specs, Sussanne, looked pretty in a black slip top and dark blue jeans. They were seen in a middle of a conversation when they were snapped by the shutterbugs.
Recently, Hrithik’s father, veteran actor and director, Rakesh Roshan, in an interview with a leading daily said how he is fond of his former daughter-in-law Sussanne and that he and his family members have nothing against her. He was quoted as saying, “Sussanne is a really nice girl and I have nothing against her. Whatever happened between Hrithik and her is their ‘kismat’. You can’t change destiny.” Talking about as parents how his son and his former daughter-in-law do their duties rightfully he said, “I must say that Hrithik and she are shouldering their parenting responsibilities very well. Hrehaan and Hridaan have lunch with the entire family almost every Sunday. It’s a family ritual.”
It’s truly very endearing to see the family bond with each other, despite Hrithik and Sussanne’s divorce. Kudos to the two of them to ensure that nothing changes for their children following their legal separation.
