New Delhi: Hrithik Roshan who is storming Bollywood and fans with the amazing reception to the trailer of his upcoming film Bang Bang, is having tough time in personal life.
Hrithik and Sussanne filed for divorce earlier this year, but now reports suggest that Sussanne, who is an established designer, has apparently demanded close to Rs 400 crore from her former husband as alimony.
The actor has reportedly agreed to pay Rs 380 crore in settlement.
Sussanne's lawyers are reportedly making every possible attempt to close the case by getting the best financial settlement. Despite the separation, the estranged couple has tried to keep up a civilised appearance in public.
The two were spotted together celebrating their son's birthday in Lonavala. On December 14, 2013, the couple 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”.
Sussanne on her part also issued a statement to the media saying, “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.”
Sussanne is an interior decorator and has been involved with several prominent projects in India and Dubai.
Despite being a successful entrepreneur, Sussanne is set to walk away with a huge amount as a parting gift from her former husband.
Hrithik is currently busy with the post-production work of his upcoming action thriller Bang Bang. He will soon start promoting the film along with co-star Katrina Kaif.
The couple approached the family court on April 30 and filed an application for separation by mutual consent. Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne, were childhood sweethearts.
They have two sons – Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
