Respect Hrithik-Suzanne’s privacy, Preity, Karan Johar

After Abhishek Bachchan, now Preity Zinta and Karan Johar urged the media to respect Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan’s privacy and leave them alone at this crucial juncture. They commented on the issue at the red carpet of the Colors Golden Petal Awards.

Preity said: "I have one thing to say to the media with lots of humbleness...these are very personal moments for people, and please don`t slander either him (Hrithik Roshan) or her (Sussanne). It is a very personal matter."

"I think you have to give them that space. It is very sad when everybody has their own personal comments," she added.

Karan who worked with Hrithik in films like `Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham`and `Agneepath`, also refrain from commenting on Hrithik and Suzanne’s personal issue.

"It is too personal to them (Hrithik and Sussanne) and, therefore, personal to us. So, I feel very uncomfortable talking about, especially anything too personal to close friends on a national platform," he added.

However, actor Anil Kapoor is hopeful about the couple will re-union in future.

"Hrithik is a family friend. He is like a younger brother to me, even Sussanne. I am very very fond of both of them. But I think these are the things that really happen in a relationship," Anil, who shares a friendly bond with the couple, said.

"I am very optimistic and hope they get back together," he added.

On Dec 13, Hrithik issued a statement announcing his split from his wife Suzanne.  The couple has been married for 13 years and has two sons - Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
