MUMBAI: As Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India announced a 3-week long national lockdown in hopes of controlling the deadly coronavirus pandemic, ex-husband and wife Hrithik Roshan and Suzanne Khan have moved in together temporarily. They took this initiative so their kids Hridhaan and Hrehaan can stay close to both their parents during this self-quarantine period.
Hrithik took to Instagram to share an absolute wholesome post thanking Susanne. He also said she was being very "supportive and understanding".
The caption read, "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 practising lockdowns.”
He continued, "It is heartwarming to see the world come together as one in this time of deep uncertainty and the possibility of months of social distancing and potential lockdowns for several weeks perhaps"
He also addressed the adverse effects of the lockdown on divorced parents, "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."
He was all praises of Sussane when he thanked her while saying, "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."
And he concluded his post by keeping everyone in his thoughts and prayers during such dark times, "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."
Hrithik and Suzanne were married for almost 13 years and separated back in 2014. What's most commendable is the fact that the couple has stayed on good terms since then. They still go out for family outings for things like movies, lunch and dinner dates and holidays with their kids.
