“My daughter is not getting married. There is no man in her life.”
Hrithik Roshan’s ex-wife, Sussanne Khan, is rumoured to be tying the knot with his close friend, Arjun Rampal.
When the couple ended their 14-year-long marriage in December 2013, speculation ran rife that Arjun caused their break-up.
As the rumour recently resurfaces, the new development is that Sussanne will be marrying Arjun, who is currently married to Mehr Jessia.
Sussanne and Hrithik’s divorce was finalised just over a year ago in May 2014.
Her mother, Zarine Khan, is quick to defend her daughter and clarifies the 36-year-old mother of two is not dating anyone.
She says: “There is not [a lot] of truth in this news, my daughter is not getting married. There is no man in her life.
“We don’t know, who, time and again keeps spreading these rumours. We are in a very sad state wherein we can’t say yes or no.
“When we try to say something, something more gets splashed all over. Now we just want to keep quiet.”
Zarine also says that her daughter is more than content with being a single mother and the family is on good terms with Hrithik.
She adds: “Sussanne is working very hard. She is happy with her life. She is bringing up her two kids single-handedly.
“We are all very compatible. We meet up. After all Hrithik is the father of my grandchildren.”
As for Arjun, there have been whispers of him splitting up with Mehr, with popular claims that Sussanne is the third wheel in their marriage.
The only response he has given so far is a little cryptic, fuelling even more wild rumours:
Games people play,arises from their own insecurities.I just wish them a lot of self confidence.Hopefully they forgive themselves soon.Peace.
