“Sussanne has decided to separate from me and end our 17-year relationship. This is a very trying time for the entire family and I request the media and the people to grant us our privacy at this time.
I do not wish this news to disempower my fans and the people about the institution of marriage in any way. I am a firm believer in this institution and respect and honour it at the highest level.
I thank my fans for all the concern and prayers for my health. My treatment is going fine. I should be able to resume my life in every way very soon.”Hrithik Roshan News Suzanne Roshan
