Looks like ending the marriage has become a costly business for Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan. Reports that have emerged this week show that Sussanne has demanded a huge sum of ₹400 crore from Hrithik Roshan as alimony.
The couple, who tied the knot in December 2000, announced their break-up last December and filed for divorce in April this year.
They have two children together, seven-year-old Hrehaan and five-year-old Hridhaan. The boys are currently under the care and protection of their mother after a court verdict on the children’s custody in May came out in favour of Sussanne.
Rumours surrounding the couple’s divorce settlement started doing the rounds on the net shortly after they released personal statements to end their 13-year-old relationship in December.“This is my greatest tribute to love. Sussanne is and always will be the love of my life for the rest of my life. If her smiles are brighter without me my love for her must accomplish that,” the 40-year-old actor, while confirming the split, wrote on his Facebook page.
Though ₹400 is one of the costliest divorce settlements ever reported in India, it need not be a burden for Hrithik, who has assets worth 5,000 crore. The final verdict on the divorce case is scheduled on 31 October.
The other Bollywood celebrities who had to pay a huge sum as marriage settlement include Sanjay Dutt (paid 8 crore to Rhea Pillai) Saif Ali Khan (Amrita Singh got half of Saif’s property), Karishma Kapoor (Sanjay Kapur paid her 7 crore) and Aditya Chopra ( paid Payal Khanna 50 crore).
