Hrithik and Suzzane should get back together!

I saw Hrithik and Suzzane on one of the annual days at Dhirubhai Ambani School in BKC. This was right after their amicable separation. Hrithik was happy with his Krissh sequels and Suzzane was excited about her new project Bandra 190. Professionally, they were both doing very well, but in their personal lives they were trying to find a grip because of the divorce, after being married for over 17 years and knowing each other since they were 12 year old children. It was a very hard time for them. As a matter of fact, it is a difficult time for any couple going through this mess. They both have joint custody of their sons and are trying their best to give them parental care and love just like before. Their love story is no less than a Bollywood flick. They both lived in the same locality and had grown up together with the same set of friends. Suzzane and Hrithik saw each other at a traffic signal just like in Hrithik’s movie ‘Kaho Na Pyar Hai’ and later met at a friend’s party. They both fell for each other head over heels while they were still teenagers. Hrithik had nick-named Suzzane ‘angel’ as he thought that she looked and behaved like one.

In their early twenties, Suzzane was working as a young interior design professional and Hrithik used to assist his father during movie production. They didn’t have a lot to spend on expensive dates, they would just meet each other every day, talk, make efforts to give each other time and get back home. Hrithik used to write beautiful poetry to woo Suzzane. They had romance, passion and a strong desire to face all odds and come out as winners. They connected with each other at a different level, where they were supporting each other through thick and thin. They encouraged each other to excel in their own professional spheres. In many interviews, Hrithik has time and again spoken that he is an actor only because of Suzzane’s conviction and faith in his abilities. This beautiful couple were friends first, then blossomed into lovers and finally tied the knot in 1997. Hrithik was a fresh star from the success of his hit movie Kaho Na Pyar Hai in 2000 and he already had his better half’s support during his most successful time.

Post his hit movie, Hrithik was written off many a times. He wasn’t offered the right kind of roles that could explore his potential as an actor. But he gradually and firmly created a niche for himself in the industry by making powerful appearances in Fiza, Lakshya, Jodha Akhbar, Agneepath, Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, etc. And recently, he impressed everyone with his looks and acting prowess in Krissh series, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Dhoom 2.  All through this, Suzzane was supporting him as a spouse and a friend. Then what went wrong in this beautiful relationship? No one knows. On December 13, 2014 Hrithik announced through an official statement about his marriage, saying, “Sussanne has decided to separate from me and end our 17-year relationship. This is a very trying time for the entire family.” Sussanne too made an official statement 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.” To this Hrithik added, “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. Unconditional.” Hrithik had subtly put the entire blame on the separation on Suzzane. But why?

Was Hrithik trying to make his stance clear or trying to gain public sympathy? One of Suzzane’s friend stated, “I am shocked that he sent out a statement like this. I am sorry but it seems like he is seeking sympathy. Also, there was no need to stress that he still believes in the institution of marriage. Does that mean that Sussanne doesn’t? We are all shaken by his stance. She has stood by him through a lot of rough times. She never went to the press and ‘blamed’ him for anything and she expected the same from him.” Being in tinsel town puts the lives of these actors an open forum and everyone wants to give their six pence in these situations. Rumour mills and tabloids were full of cheeky snippets about alleged affair of both Hrithik and Suzzane which they refuted in media. Suzzane had confirmed in many interviews in the past that she never felt insecure about the fact that she was married to the most gorgeous looking actor in Bollywood. She had always claimed that it gave her a high that the most desirable man in India, Hrithik, desired her. So what could have gone wrong in their paradise?

Was that clashing egos of two growing professionals who were not able to give each other enough time? Every relationship needs time and investment which most of us neglect but Hrithik had always showed his immense respect for a working wife who was also an excellent professional. So this reason falls flat.  Or was that Suzzane was upset dealing with family and children all by herself as Hrithik was busy shooting most of the times? This also seems far-fetched as they both had tried on several occasions to be together for the family and children. Be it Ganpati festival, Rakesh Roshan’s birthday party or children’s annual day, both of them were seen participating equally with complete zest. Or that Hrithik had become absolutely engrossed as an actor that he started neglecting his wife all together? To maintain his Greek god like physique he requires to give special attention to his diet and invests 4 hours a day in his gym with his trainer apart from his shoot schedules. Sources cite several reasons why a reconciliation does not seem possible, one of which is Sussanne’s terminal boredom with her husband who, she felt, had become obsessed with his career and his undeniable good looks. The wife felt neglected. Or it could have been the brewing problem with the in-laws as Suzzane wanted to move out whereas Hrithik was adamant to stay with his parents. (TOI) 

While shooting for the movie Bang Bang he had insisted on doing some life-threatening stunts himself which resulted in his head-injury and then the near-fatal brain surgery. May be, he was taking risks which was not ok with Suzzane. Or that they had evolved into two different individuals who were not in love with each other anymore. That sounds very unlikely given that they both had grown up together loving each other, evolving as two individuals and supporting each other through a lot of trying times. Sanjay Khan, Suzzane’s father had quoted at that time, “They both are intelligent and wonderful people. It’s just that they need space. Of course this is not a closure. They respect each other. To resolve issues, may be this is what they thought was good.”

Hrithik is still very close with the Khans. Be it Zayed or jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali, he ensures that he participates in their crucial moments when required. When Farah Khan had launched her own line of jewellery with Tanishq last year, Hrithik was part of the launch. He keeps visiting his children from time to time and tries to spend time with them regularly, though the children now stay with their mother. Suzzane also tries to be cordial with her ex-husband for the sake of her children. It cannot be denied that they make a beautiful family. I sincerely hope that they resolve their issues and get back together. They were the most beautiful couple in the tinsel town and no one can take their power couple status from them. I hope they understand that whatever they shared as a young couple can always be revived. Misunderstandings, ego clashes and other family issues can always be worked upon.
