"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." Roshan wrote in a statement issued to the media.
"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... And Once again I thank my fans for all the concern and prayers for my health, my treatment is going well and I should be able to resume my life in every way very soon," he added.
After 13 years of being happily married, there were several speculations in the media that not all is well between the Krrish actor and his wife.
According to a report in DNA, the rumours were sparked off when Sussanne left Hrithik's house where she lived with their two sons - Hrehaan and Hridhaan - and moved back to her parents' house.
