Just a week before their 13th wedding anniversary (December 20), Hrithik Roshan, announced something that stunned his fans everywhere. The golden couple of Bollywood, Hrithik and Sussanne, have decided to end their 17 year long relationship (which includes 4 years of their courtship). And within minutes of their statements, the media was rife with speculations. While some alleged that Hrithik’s rumoured affairs with his co-stars was the reason, others claimed that is was a cheap publicity stunt.
Both Of Them is still trying to resolve their issues:
Hrithik and Sussanne, despite issuing a press release about their divorce, still have not given up on each other. Sussanne’s sister, Farah Khan has tweeted,
“Everything in this world is as permanent or as temporary as we see it. Would like to request the media/friends to be sensitive to the fact that there are two innocent children involved and no one can predict the future.”
Even An Sussanne’s father, vetran actor Sanjay Khan was quoted saying,
“They both are intelligent and wonderful people. It’s just that they need space. Of course this is not a closure. They respect each other. To resolve issues, may be this is what they thought was good.”
What About Hrithik?
Hrithik’s alleged has affairs with Kareena Kapoor and Barbara Mori :
Hrithik Roshan and Kareena Kapoor have always shared a sizzling chemistry on-screen before and after Hrithik’s marriage and it is no wonder that the media was abuzz about a possible affair. However, to put an end to this, the two actors decided to not sign any more movies together. In fact, Zoya Akhtar’s Kismet Talkies, a film that was supposed to star them was also shelved because of this!
After Kareena, it was Hrithik’s bold chemistry with his Kites (2010) co-star Barbara Mori, which again made the media speculate about his ‘marital bond’. When Kites was being shot, Sussanne had left the couple’s residence and had gone to live with her parents. When the rumours started talking about Hrithik and Barbara’s affair, Rakesh Roshan issued a statement saying that Sussanne had left because their house was under renovation. Soon after the film was released, Sussanne and Hrithik were again spotted together and the rumour mill was put to rest then.
What About Sussanne?
Sussanne’s Also alleged ‘closeness’ with Arjun Rampal:
A lot of people claimed that the couple had decided to split because Sussanne was apparently getting close to Arjun Rampal. But Arjun told the media that he came to know about the couple’s split at the same time as the media. He said,
“Mehr and I wish them only peace and love through these times, and support them as friends should and we wish them and their families well, always. It is very sad when friends close to you take a decision to separate. These are the hardest times for them and we must be sensitive towards this decision, rather than creating speculation and rumours.”
Or All This Is Just publicity stunt?
Some fans believes that Hrithik-Sussanne’s split is just a cheap publicity stunt. Even in 2010, when reports of actor’s glaring chemistry with Babrara surfaced, many held that it was a way for producers to generate publicity for their upcoming film.
But, what does Hrithik need publicity for now? Krrish 3 is a huge success already and he does not have upcoming movies that are close to release. In fact, the actor is undergoing treatment in the U.S. So we say, the split is definitely not a publicity stunt.
Hrithik and Sussanne are definitely going through the toughest phase of their lives and we hope that these childhood sweethearts make a decision that will make them and their children happy in the long run For Their Future.
