[dropcap]O[/dropcap]N the night of her recent store launch, a few days after Hrithik Roshan announced that he and his wife Sussanne were separating, the superstar wife spent a lot of time with the Rampals — Arjun and Mehr.
In fact, she has been really close to the Rampals for the last few years. When the news of her estrangement from Hrithik made headlines, Arjun and Mehr volunteered to stand by the Roshans saying their common friends were going through a rough patch. Arjun had said, “Mehr and I wish them only peace and love through these times and support them as friends should.’’
But goldfish have no hiding place. The unwarranted spotlight on Sussanne and Hrithik after their recent split, has made things awkward for their friends as well. Some media reports brought in Arjun’s name and, as a result, the Rampals have quietly distanced themselves from Sussanne.
One of their common friends said, “Ideally the Rampals may have been happy to have Sussanne join them on their New Year break. But this did not happen.”
The Rampals kept their holiday plans to themselves and just Arjun, Mehr and their two daughters flew to Dubai. Sussanne, on the other hand, rang in 2014 with her parents and siblings. The nice thing is that her family has decided to stand by Sussanne in this turbulent phase.
Another common friend adds, “All are mature individuals. The Rampals and Sussanne realise that a little distance will go a long way in salvaging their long-term friendship.’’
