Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and his wife Sussanne Khan were yesterday granted divorce by a family court, nearly a year after the star couple announced their split.
‘The court has granted divorce to both of them. It was a divorce by mutual consent.’ Hrithik’s lawyer Mr. Mrunalini Deshmukh said.
Hrithik and Sussanne, who have two children, approached the court in April this year and filed an application for separation by mutual consent. On December 14 last year, the couple had called off their marriage.

In a statement, the 40-year-old Krrish actor had said Sussanne decided to walk out of their 13-year-old marriage. On a different note, Sussanne said 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” she said.
The two had filed for divorce a few months ago and now we hear that the court has decided to seal their decision. The hearing was held at Bandra family court in Mumbai today morning and the judge has granted divorce to the couple. Mrunalini Deshmukh, lawyer of Suzanne Khan was quoted saying, “The divorce has been granted and I can’t diverse you with the details. Everything is decided between the parties in a healthy way.”
