Sussanne Khan reveals ‘real reason’ for divorce with Hrithik Roshan

The news of Bollywood’s golden couple Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan ending their 11-year-long marriage came as a shock. There were speculations of a third angle in their blissful relationship.

Some reports claimed that Hrithik’s closeness with his co-stars was the reason for the split, while others said it was Sussanne’s alleged affair with Arjun Rampal. While both of them denied the reports, neither of the two openly talked about the reason for their separation.  

Now, Sussane has revealed the actual reason for her divorce with the ‘Bang Bang’ star. 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.

Hrithik and Sussanne got married in December, 2000 after a courtship of four years. They have two sons – 10-year-old Hrehaan and Hridaan aged eight.

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.
