I do not wish this news to disempower my fans and the people about the institution of marriage in any way. I am a firm believer in this institution and respect and honour it at the highest level. I thank my fans for all the concern and prayers for my health. My treatment is going fine. I should be able to resume my life in every way very soon.”

Susanne, in a separate statement, described the separation as the outcome of “our own individual choices”.

They have two sons – Hrehaan, seven and Hridhaan, five.
Susanne’s father Sanjay Khan, however, said it was not the end of the road for his daughter’s marriage to Hrithik.
