Back in 2004, when Hrithik Roshan announced his split with then-wife Suzanne, everyone went crazy.
The most aww-dorable b-town couple had decided to call it quits. The media went crazy and the fans went crazier. Everyone had only one question in mind- Why now? Why after 17 years?
Also, everyone wanted to know when will we see Hrithik-Sussanne back together?
The media had infinite reasons and debates lined up for the divorce. In fact, there were speculations about a third angle being a part of their marital paradise. Whatever the reason be, the fans were seemingly quite heartbroken by this announcement.
The Couple Mumble
Hrithik gave an official statement: “Sussanne has decided to separate from me and end our 17-year relationship. This is a very trying time for the entire family.”
Suzanne also spoke up after some time: “We are two individuals who respect and care for each other and have made our own individual choices. We are parents to two wonderful kids and our responsibility remains to protect and take care of them. Nothing can change that. Would appreciate if we are given our privacy in such a time. Thank you for your warmth and concern for both of us and the family.”
As a matter of fact, both Sussanne and Hrithik have remained silent behind the actual reason for their split. However, after a long time, Sussanne broke her silence and commented on the matter. Suzzanne 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).”
A Publicity Stunt?
We all remember “the era” where every channel we switched, the news said: “Hrithik- Suzzane Split“. Or “the power couple breaks hearts after 13 years“. Or “Hrithik and Suzzane headed for a divorce?”
The news channels showed nothing but their love story from scratch. For the fans, it was a heartbreaking news whereas the others were a tad bit irritated.
While we witnessed fans turning into a gloomy mess, others were strongly opinionated about it being a publicity stunt. Rumors of both Hrithik and Suzzane having alleged affairs have surfaced. While Hrithik’s glaring chemistry with Barbara Mori surfaced, Suzzane allegedly hooked up with Arjun Rampal.
The Recent Encounter
Quite recently, the two were seen outside a mumbai restaurant where they came together for their son’s birthday. Ever since they have seperated, Hrithik and Sussane have been devoted and affectionate parents. The two have always maintained that being good parents is and will always be #NumberOnePriority. We couldn’t agree more though.
Sussane Roshan clarifies, “Like I always said, Hrithik and I are parents first and have to be in-sync regarding our priorities as parents in order to make sure our boys get the best upbringing. They are and always will be our main priority. So the two of us having lunch with them doesn’t mean we are holidaying together.”
Like the devoted fans, we too wish for the couple to come back together. Their relationship might not have worked but both of them are wonderful human beings and have proved to be so time and again.
The couple has been seen together time and again but has always maintained that they are doing it for the sake of their kids. Even though the couple has called for separation since long, they have never blamed each other of anything.
The couple has always been supportive of each other and we love them for it.
