I have nothing against Suzanne, Rakesh Roshan on Hrithik-Suzanne divorce


Filmmaker and dad Rakesh Roshan opened up on Hritik Roshan and Suzanne Khan’s divorce. According to senior Roshan, whatever happened between Suzanne and his actor son was their destiny. But he is also happy that they are doing their parenting duties very well.

In an interview with Bombay Times, Rakesh Roshan opened up on his son’s divorce, "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. 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," the Krrish director said.

Hrithik and Suzanne called it a quit after 13 years of blissful married life. Though break-up, Hrithik 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. 

In an interview to a leading women’s magazine, the entrepreneur said, “We had reached a stage in our lives where I decided that it’s better we weren’t together. It was important to be aware and not be in a false relationship.”

“We are close (friends). We do chat a lot even though we don’t hang-out 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," Sussanne added.

Just a week before their 13th wedding anniversary, Hrithik made the shocking announcement in a statement saying, “Sussanne has decided to separate from me and end our 17-year relationship. This is a very trying time for the entire family.” After staying separately for a year, the couple obtained a divorced by mutual consent in November 2014. Both of them share custody of their two sons.
