The court granted divorce to both Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan and it was a divorce by mutual consent.
Post the court proceedings, Hrithik Roshan’s lawyer Deepesh Mehta stated, “They are legally divorced now. Yesterday at around 10:30 am, all things were done. They have got divorced in a very unique and elegant way where there is no alimony and not a single document drawn up between them. It’s all on the basis of trust, respect and faith. This is an example they have set on how a couple should part ways in an elegant and classy way. They have joint custody. Whenever and whoever wants to be with the kids, can be with them.”
