Ever since the news about Hrithik – Sussanne’s divorce broke out, one name that is unfairly being dragged into this mess is actor Arjun Rampal. Apparently, Sussanne’s closeness to Rampal is one major reason why the couple have decided to part ways, at least that’s what most Page 3 columns have been screaming out.
But this allegation hasn’t really gone down well with Arjun Rampal. He is saddened, annoyed and disgusted, all at the same time. Denying any involvement in their marriage, the actor has released a statement of his own, refuting the recent rumors:
“It’s 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. I read in the news at the same time as you all about my involvement in this marriage. It saddens me deeply that rumours become inevitable when celebrities go through such times. Mehr [Jessia, his wife] 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.”
Meanwhile, Sussanne’s dad, Sanjay Khan insists that the couple’s decision is not yet a “closure” and that they needed time to sort things out.
