As India enters a 21-day nationwide lockdown in an attempt to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, Sussanne Khan has decided to move in with ex-husband Hrithik Roshan to co-parent their two sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan. The couple separated in 2014 after 13 long years of marriage.
Thanking Sussanne for her gesture, Hrithik Roshan said in an Instagram post, “It is unimaginable for me, as a parent, to think of having to be separated from my children at a time when the country is practicing lockdowns.”
He went on to add, “It is heart-warming to see the world come together as one in this time of deep uncertainty and possibility of months of social distancing and potential lockdowns for several weeks perhaps. While the world talks about humanity coming together, I think it represents more than just an idea especially for parents sharing custody of their kids. How to keep their kids close to them without infringing on the right of the other who also has an equal right to be with his/her children.”
Roshan praised Khan for putting their sons first during these tough times. “This is a picture of dear Sussanne (my ex-wife), who has graciously volunteered to temporarily move out of her home so that our children are not disconnected indefinitely from either one of us. Thank you Sussanne for being so supportive and understanding in our journey of co-parenting.”
He concluded his post saying, “Our children will tell the story we create for them. I hope and pray that in order to safeguard the health of ourselves and our loved ones, we all find our way to express love, empathy, courage, strength with an open heart.”
