Hrithik and Sussanne, who were childhood sweethearts, had tied the knot in 2000 after a four-year-long relationship. But the two made a decision to part ways and got divorced. 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.
The "Koi... Mil Gaya" actor said that as the two share the custody of their children, it would have been hard for both of them to stay separated from their children amid lockdown.
Now, after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced nationwide lockdown for 21 days, Hrithik announced via his Instagram page that his ex-wife Sussanne Khan has moved in his house, so that equally spend time with their sons amid social distancing.
While noting that it is heartwarming to see the world come together at such a grim time, Hrithik also shared that the period can be tough for parents like himself and Sussane, who share joint custody of their kids.
The War actor went on to write, "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".
"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", Hrithik added. "Thank you Sussanne for being so supportive and understanding in our journey of co-parenting", he wrote. "I hope and pray that in order 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", Hrithik concluded his post.
Well, this truly sets an example of how to raise the kids, even when the parents are separated, isn't it? They have two sons - Hrehaan and Hridhaan. Earlier, Hrithik Roshan, quarantined at home with his kids, shared a picture of the two boys and said, "Couldn't ask for a better view".
It's heart-warming to see how Bollywood senior star hero Hrithik Roshan and his ex-wife Sussane Khan could strike out an equation that doesn't affect their children and also not infringe on their respective custodial rights of their kids.
