Sussanne Khan, the estranged wife of Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, on Wednesday denied reports that she is set to wed again. A successful entrepreneur, she says the gossip “hurts” as “families and human feelings” are involved.
Sussanne, an interior designer by profession, decided to issue a statement in the light of the media reports around her rumoured wedding to “one of Hrithik’s close friends”. Several reports pointed at actor Arjun Rampal, who was reportedly a key reason behind the Hrithik-Sussanne split.
Just earlier this week, it was reported that Sussanne and Arjun were spotted at a coffee shop here.
In her clarification, Sussannne said: “Persistent speculation in the media has made me realise that idle Bollywood gossip mongers, who are influential, are insistent on spreading rumours and lies about me.”
“Stories are fabricated on upcoming weddings and meetings in coffee shops. It is irresponsible press if incorrect stories are published. There are families and human feelings involved and it hurts people when false gossip is passed off as true. I am a single working mother and take tremendous pride in the way I live.”
A mother of two — Hrehaan and Hridhaan — Sussanne is the daughter of veteran actor Sanjay Khan and Zarine Khan.
