Sussanne, on the night of her store launch, which was just days after Hrithik Roshan announced that he and his wife were separating, she spent a lot of time with the Rampals — Arjun and Mehr.
Sussane had been really close to the Rampals for the past few years now. When the news of Hrithik and Sussanne’s break-up covered headlines, Arjun and Mehr volunteered to stand by the Roshans saying their common friends were going through a rough patch. Arjun had said, “Mehr and I wish them only peace and love through these times and support them as friends should.”
The unwarranted spotlight on Sussanne and Hrithik after their recent split, made things awkward for their friends as well. Some media reports brought in Arjun’s name and, as a result, the Rampals have quietly distanced themselves from Sussanne.
One of their common friends said, “Ideally the Rampals may have been happy to have Sussanne join them on their New Year break. But this did not happen.”
Another common friend adds, “All are mature individuals. The Rampals and Sussanne realise that a little distance will go a long way in salvaging their long-term friendship.”
