We all saw it coming -- the split of Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Roshan. On Friday, Hrithik finally confirmed that he and Sussanne have decided to separate and that he would like to have his privacy in this trying time.
No sooner was the break-up confirmed than the rumour mills began churning out the gossip that Arjun Rampal, who’s a good friend of both Hrithik and Sussanne, was the reason behind the split. It’s being said that Arjun and Sussanne got too close to each other for their own good.
However, Arjun Rampal has issued a statement in which he has denied having anything to do with the split. He’s also urged the press to be sensitive to the situation between Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Roshan.
“It is very sad when friends close to you take a decision to separate. These are the hardest times for them and we must be sensitive to towards this decision, rather than creating speculation and rumours. I read in the news as the same time as you all about my involvement in this marriage. It saddens me deeply that rumours become inevitable during celebrities going through such times. Mehr and I wish them only peace and love through these times and support them as friends should and we wish them and their families well always,” Arjun Rampal says in his statement.
Arjun Rampal is married to former model Mehr Jessia. The couple tied the knot in 1998 and is presently in the 15th year of their marriage.
Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Roshan tied the knot in 2000. Before that they dated for four years. They have two children, Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
