Father’s Day is the occasion to celebrate and pour our heart out for our daddy dearest. It is very rare that we talk about all the love and respect we have for our father. We often shy away from saying ‘I love you’ to our father, and thus, we have a day to celebrate all the sacrifices our fathers do for us. The Greek God of Bollywood, Hrithik Roshan has been a hands-on father for his two sons, Hrehaan Roshan and Hridhaan Roshan. His ex-wife, Sussanne Khan is thankful to him about the same.

It was in 2014 when Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan had broken the hearts of millions when they had announced their separation. Ending their 14 years of marriage, Hrithik and Sussanne had let bygones be bygones by maintaining a healthy relationship even after the divorce. The two are co-parenting their sons, Hrehaan Roshan and Hridhaan Roshan and are each other’s best friend and confidante. Hrithik and Sussanne give us hope that two people can be friends even if their relationship as a couple went down the hill.
On the occasion of Father’s Day (June 21, 2020), Sussanne Khan took to her Instagram handle and shared an awwdorable IGTV of Hrithik Roshan with her sons, Hrehaan and Hridaan. The video is a compilation of various memories Hrithik has lived with his two little ones. From holding his little one to his fatherhood journey, the video is a beautiful compilation of memories. Along with the video, Sussanne mentioned how Hrithik is the best dad ever. She wrote, “When God knew he couldn’t be everywhere he made ‘A Dad’ Happy daddy’s day Rye... u are simply the best dad ever. #rayridzrye.” Take a look:
Hrithik also took the opportunity of Father’s Day and shared an IGTV showing the first day he learnt the true meaning of multitasking. In the video, we can see Hrithik with his sons, Hrehaan and Hridaan, who are sleepy enough while walking on the Colombo Airport. In the video, he showed how he let his kids be on their own and how the two brothers ended up sleeping together as they are ‘Brothers Forever’. Along with the video, Hrithik wrote, “Throwback to the the day I learnt the true meaning of multitasking. #justanotherdayinadadslife #walkandsleep (Poor guys, my rule was no matter what, I wasn’t going to pick them up. We all had to walk it on our own.) #Fatheronthejob." Take a look:
During the lockdown, Hrithik and Sussanne had decided to live together and co-parent their kids, Hrehaan and Hridaan. On March 25, 2020, Hrithik had taken to his Instagram handle and had posted a picture of his ex-wife, Sussanne Khan chilling in his home, revealing that Sussanne had decided to move-in with him for the self-quarantine period so that their children can spend time with both of them. Hrithik had written a long emotional note, thanking Sussanne that coul be read as “It is unimaginable for me, as a parent, to think of having to be separated from my children at a time when the country is practising lockdowns. It is heartwarming to see the world come together as one in this time of deep uncertainty and the possibility of months of social distancing and potential lockdowns for several weeks perhaps.” Take a look.
Moving further in his long note, Hrithik had also called Sussanne extremely supportive, as his post could be read as “While the world talks about humanity coming together, I think it represents more than just an idea especially for parents sharing custody of their kids. How to keep their kids close to them without infringing on the right of the other who also has an equal right to be with his/her children. This is a picture of dear Sussanne (my ex-wife), who has graciously volunteered to temporarily move out of her home so that our children are not disconnected indefinitely from either one of us. Thank you Sussanne for being so supportive and understanding in our journey of co-parenting. Our children will tell the story we create for them. I hope and pray that to safeguard the health of ourselves and our loved ones, we all find our way to express love, empathy, courage, strength with an open heart.” (Recommended Read: Shibani Dandekar And Farhan Akhtar's Lunch Date With Parents, Javed Akhtar And Shabana Azmi [Video])
In an interview with the Vogue magazine, Sussanne had opened up on the decision of co-parenting with Hrithik amidst the pandemic. She had shared how the ex-couple had taken the joint decision of living in the same house of the sake for their kids. Sussanne had said, "When COVID-19 was declared a pandemic and the news was out that a lockdown would be imperative, Hrithik and I decided that staying together in the same home would be the more intelligent and soulful decision for our sons, and for us. We realised early on that the days ahead would require us to regroup our energies towards creating serenity for one another. With that thought in mind, and a heap full of love, we started on our lockdown adventure."
