Though the entire nation was shocked on hearing Hrithik and Sussanne’s decision to part ways, it was no breaking news for the couple’s near and dear ones. Apparently, the break-up had taken place three months ago, when Sussanne moved out off the Roshan pariwaar after a spat which reportedly turned quite ugly.
Despite immense efforts from both the families to bring the couple back together, the duo are not ready to patch up. Suzanne’s brother Zayed Khan says, “My entire family has gone through hell. We tried our level-best to make them understand. But they are adults and I am sure they know what they are doing.”
Both, Sussanne’s brother Zayed Khan and father Sanjay Khan are very fond of Hrithik Roshan. It is heard that the father son duo have tried their maximum best to get the couple sort out their differences, but to no avail. Adds Zayed, “Finally if they (Hrthik and Sussanne) are at peace with their decision what anyone else says is of no consequence. We stand by whatever decision has been taken.”
In the meanwhile, here’s what a few celebs and close friends have to say about the break-up!
Hrithik shares a strong bond with Sussanne’s sister, jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali, who tweeted,
“Family will always stick together through thick and thin and I will always love you both Hrithik and Sussanne.”
Queen of controversies, Poonam Pandey tweeted: “Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Roshan splitting up. Such a terrible news! Need to reinstate my faith in TRUE love.”
Sussanne’s uncle Akbar Khan says, “Both are beautiful people. My heart reaches out to them in this tragic separation. I feel both are mature, and, within their own expression of life, have taken this decision. I hope and pray that they soon come back together, because they look so beautiful together.”
Abhishek Bachchan who has been a close friend to the couple, says, “If you read the statement, Hrithik has requested his privacy to be respected and that is exactly what we should do. We should respect that privacy and give them strength during this trying time. I really feel that it will be wonderful if the media backs off and let them do what they wish to. It is very nice that he has issued a statement, his request for privacy should be respected. I will do so and so should you all.”
Karan Johar and Priety Zinta, said, “We request the media to give some space to the couple. It’s a rough patch in their lives, so be supportive.”
Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj too is of the same opinion. “I think, it’s their personal space which no one should intrude.” Actress Aarti Chabaria expressed her grief and said, “I’m a big fan of Hrithik Roshan and this news has come as a shocker. I have no right to comment on it but I want to convey best wishes to Hrithik.”
Actors Anil Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor, on the contrary, are still hopeful about their relationship. “It’s sad but I hope they unite again,” said Shahid. “I’m a positive person and I feel they will bury the hatchet and get back very soon.”
Sonakshi Sinha and director Prabhu Dheva refused to comment.
Hrithik is currently at an undisclosed location abroad for medical treatment. He has been suffering bouts of headache from quite sometime now.
