He says he has had nothing to do with it. Arjun Rampal is hopping mad with reports that he was behind Hrithik Roshan and Suzzane’s divorce. After a stiff ‘what-kind-of- stupid-question-is-that-i-am-in-dubai-’ response he was quick to issue a statement.

This is his official statement -

‘’It is very sad when friends close to you take a decision to separate. These are the hardest times for them and we must be sensitive towards this decision, rather than creating speculation and rumours. I read in the news as the same time as you all about my involvement in this marriage. It saddens me deeply that rumors become inevitable during celebrities going through such times. Mehr and I wish them only peace and love through these times and support them as friends should and we wish them and their families well always.’’

Arjun Rampal has been in the eye of the storm ever since his friends Hrithik and good friend Suzzane announced their decision to separate a few days ago and sent out a statement to the media. So who and what’s behind Hrithik and Sussanne Roshan's shocking split. While some parties blame Arjun Rampal as being the cause of their breakup but Arjun is very very miffed with these allegations and has totally rubbished the rumours. Truth is the chinks were there for a long time for all to see and for the past several years with Hrithik’s complete obsession with his work and Suzzane’s terminal boredom with her marital life…and this was a foregone conclusion with many insiders indicating an uncomplicated open marriage on the cards. But no one was expecting a formal announcement so soon.  Hrithik announced the split from his wife in a terse statement released from Los Angeles where the star is vacationing solo. It left no ambiguity about who had left whom. "Sussanne has decided to separate from me and end our 17-year-long relationship," he wrote about the end of his fairytale marriage before assuring his fans that he still had "faith in the institution of marriage."

It is not a secret that Sussanne had moved out of the family home in Juhu with their two sons about four months ago but the separation was kept a secret as the Roshans did not want anything to divert attention from Krissh 3 and the Roshans had downplayed Sussanne's move out of the marital home saying she had gone to be with her sick father. So what happened? Sources say boredom and some old fashioned saas-bahu jhagdas. Friends of the couple close to the development told this newspaper that Sussanne wanted Hrithik to move out of the family home Palazzio in Juhu but the star was not keen to leave his parents and his divorced sister. Not that Sussanne had to share a small flat with caviling in-laws.

The couple had their own independent floor but the escalating tensions between the bahu and the in-laws would not be contained in that building, and culminated with a blazing row between Sussane and Pinky Mum-inlaw Roshan some days ago leading to this denoucement. In the past Sussanne had moved into a plush five-star hotel in the vicinity saying that their home was infested with termites. Sussanne who has been putting long hours at work and has been partying solo, say friends, is "seriously unhappy." She was conspicuous by her absence at the family's Ganeshotsav celebrations this year and neither was she seen at the Krrish 3 promotional events. She made a brief appearance at Rakesh Roshan's birthday on September 6 this year, citing her father Sanjay Khan's illness, but maintained a distance from her husband.

The next day she flew out to Paris but didn't return to Palazzio when she came back to Mumbai. That was when Sanjay and his wife Zarine decided to intervene. They told their daughters, Farah Khan Ali and Simone, to speak to the couple. The meetings happened at Sussanne's father, Sanjay Khan's house, Sanjay Plaza. "But the meetings were not fruitful," a friend of Hrithik's told this newspaper. Sussanne was adamant that she would not go back to live at Palazzio but by then Hrithik was in no mood to oblige her. Sad ending for childhood sweethearts.
