Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne's decision to end their marriage of 13 years came as a shock to the film industry. Although the couple hasn't revealed the reason behind the split, the rumour mills have been busy generating stories.
Some say their problems began back in 2010 when he was allegedly involved with his Kites co-star Barbara Mori; other reports claim that Hrithik made Sussanne feel "neglected".
While in this case, Hrithik-Sussanne are parting ways, in many other instances in the past, actors have braved the troubles and proved speculators wrong by salvaging their relationships.
Back in the '80s, reports claimed that Amitabh Bachchan's alleged relationship with Rekha caused some trouble in his marriage with Jaya Bachchan. However, the couple never gave in to the pressure of reacting to such reports. They patiently waited for the media hype to pass and eventually let time prove all those rumours just that - rumours.
too went through a tough time. In 1980, he reportedly parted ways with his then-wife Saira Banu to marry a Pakistani girl. But some sources claim that after he found out that she was cheating on him, he ended that relationship and re-married Banu.
In 2004, Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna too had apparently called it quits. Reports claimed that Twinkle had asked Akshay to leave the house as she had found out about his affair with another actor. Their spat even took an ugly turn when Twinkle apparently slapped Akshay publicly in the lobby of a hotel and warned him against signing films with the particular actor.
But the couple refused to give up on their relationship. Instead, they worked their issues out. The most recent speculation about a divorce came in 2012, when Ranveer Shorey and Konkona Sen Sharma reportedly decided to part ways. But they too chose not to file for divorce and thereby gave their marriage a second chance.
