As Hrithik and wife Sussanne decided to part ways, there were rumors of Arjun's involvement in the split following the alleged growing friendship between Arjun and Sussanne. "I read in the news, about the same time as you all, about my involvement in this marriage.
It saddens me deeply that rumours 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 said in a statement here.
"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," he said.
Earlier, Hrithik had said in a statement that it was Sussanne who has decided to separate from him and end their 17-year-old relationship. The couple got married in 2000 and have two children Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
