Meanwhile, Sussane Khan has been staying with ex-husband Hrithik Roshan since the lockdown was announced. The decision to stay together was taken by the couple in order to stay close to their sons Hreehan and Hridhaan. Following which, Hrithik shared a heartfelt note of gratitude on Instagram. He wrote, “It is unimaginable for me, as a parent, to think of having to be separated from my children at a time when the country is practising lockdowns. . It is heartwarming to see the world come together as one in this time of deep uncertainty and the possibility of months of social distancing and potential lockdowns for several weeks perhaps…”
“While the world talks about humanity coming together, I think it represents more than just an idea especially for parents sharing custody of their kids. How to keep their kids close to them without infringing on the right of the other who also has an equal right to be with his/her children. This is a picture of dear Sussanne (my ex-wife), who has graciously volunteered to temporarily move out of her home so that our children are not disconnected indefinitely from either one of us.”
He added, “Thank you Sussanne for being so supportive and understanding in our journey of co-parenting. Our children will tell the story we create for them. I hope and pray that in order to safeguard the health of ourselves and our loved ones, we all find our way to express love, empathy, courage, strength with an open heart “
