Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and his wife Sussanne approached the family court on Wednesday (April 30) and filed an application for separation by mutual consent, around four months after they decided to end their marriage.
The family court in suburban Bandra would hear their application by November.
On December 14, 2013, they called off their marriage and issued two separate statements to the media.
In his statement Hrithik Roshan had said that Sussanne decided to walk out of their 13-year-old marriage. “This is my greatest tribute to love. Sussanne is and always will be the love of my life for the rest of my life. If her smiles are brighter without me, my love for her must accomplish that,” Hrithik had written on his Facebook page. However, in a separate statement, Sussanne had called it, “our own individual choices”.
“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,” she had said.
Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne, who were childhood sweethearts, had tied the knot in 2000 after a four-year relationship. They have two sons – Hrehaan, aged seven and Hridhaan aged five.
