There is a list of Bollywood couples who give us relationship goals with their long-term marriages and inspire us with the bond they share with each other. But some of them also leave us in shock when they decide to part ways.
Apart from Farhan and Adhuna, Malaika and Arbaaz, another couple who called it quits from their long-term marriage is none other than Hrithik and Sussanne. They have been the most adorable couple of tinsel town and were just like a picture-perfect family with their two kids, Hrehaan and Hridhaan. After being together for good 17 years (which includes four years of their courtship), their separation in 2014 was the most shocking and disheartening divorce for their fans.
The couple ended their marriage on an amicable note, but there were speculations about Hrithik’s infidelity towards Sussanne. We all know about the Kangana-Hrithik spat, which was one of the ugliest ones that the Bollywood industry came across. Kangana came in front of the media with her alleged secret affair with Greek God of Bollywood in 2014. They were both into a legal battle and Kangana demanded an apology from the Roshans for traumatising her mentally. But, Hrithik’s ex-wife came to the rescue and posted a picture of them together substantiating her support for him. Here's the picture she shared on Instagram:
And, she captioned it this:
“There is no allegation or a sad evil plot that can have the weight to triumph over a good soul. #mafamilia #powerofthetruth #pureheart”
Though the couple is separated, they did not let their distressed relationship affect their children. They go on holidays together and are always there for each other through thick and thin. And Sussanne has given the best example of their friendship bond by supporting him in the spat. The couple clarified that there is no scope of reconciliation and they also proved it wrong that exes can never be friends post-breakup.
After so many allegations and controversies that surrounded the Roshan family and Hrithik’s character, finally, he decided to tell the media his side of the story. On denying being unfaithful towards his wife, Hrithik said:
"Absolutely not. Sussanne has been very very vocal about this. She has been very vocal. And I feel like laughing at people. When people get divorced, it is not always because of infidelity by the man. That is just such a small minded assumption. I am just trying to say that there are many reasons why people would like to live separate lives. Infidelity is just one of them. So the general assumption was, 'Ah he is the superstar, he must have done something wrong. She must have caught him..' That is not the case. We are great friends. It is between us. The reason that we decided to live separately may have been an inspiring reason, how do you know?”
In 2016, when Sussanne was asked about the reason for their divorce, she said:
"We had reached a stage in our lives where I decided that it is better we weren't together. It was important to be aware and not be in a false relationship. We are close (friends)."
Recently, there were rumours doing the round that the two are planning to give their relationship and marriage another change and will soon tie the knot for the second time. If this happens, not only their families and kids but their fans will also be more than happy.
Well, all we can say is even the matches made in heaven face the tough times and end up separating. Though Hrithik and Sussanne are friends post their divorce and come together for the sake of their children, the actual reason behind their separation is still not clear. But we hope the rumours about the two tying the knot come out to be true and they get back together.
