Hrithik Roshan, Sussanne divorce finalised, no alimony involved
Almost 10 months after they separated, actor Hrithik Roshan and his wife Sussanne Khan were granted divorce on Saturday by a court in Mumbai. The couple also agreed to share the custody of their sons, Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
The Bollywood star's lawyer confirmed that the divorce was granted by a Bandra court.
Lawyer Deepesh Mehta said: "They are legally divorced now. Today at around 10.30 am, all things were done. They have got divorced in a very unique and elegant way where there is no alimony and not a single document drawn up between them. It's all on the basis of trust, respect and faith."
Mehta said, "This is an example they have set on how a couple should part ways in an elegant and classy way."
It was earlier reported that a Rs 100 crore alimony was involved in their divorce but Sussanne had officially denied it.
"They have joint custody. Whenever and whoever wants to be with the kids, can be with them," Mehta said.
Hrithik announced Sussanne's decision to end their 17-year-old relationship via an official statement on December 13, 2013. Both dated for four years before finally tying the knot December 20, 2000.
In the statement, Hrithik had said Sussanne decided to walk out of their 13-year-old marriage.
In a separate statement, Sussanne had called the split "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 of two wonderful kids and our responsibility remains to protect and take care of them. Nothing can change that...," she had said.
