Hrithik Roshan and his estranged wife Sussanne Khan were granted divorce by the Bandra court on Saturday, paving the way for actor and his childhood friend to go their respective way.
The actor’s lawyer Deepesh Mehta told IANS: “They are legally divorced now. Today at around 10:30 a.m., 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. The couple has two children Hrehaan and Hridhaan and they will be under joint custody of both parents.
“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 Dec 13, 2013. Both dated for four years before finally tying the knot on Dec 20, 2000 in Bangalore’s Spa owned by Sussanne’s father.
