Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan has rubbished reports of his having split with wife Suzanne saying that he is having "a picnic" with her and their kids.
A leading Mumbai tabloid reported that Hrithik and Suzanne have parted ways when she had moved to her parents' house.
"It is too funny! Yes, Suzanne shifted to her parents' place with the kids two days ago and I was to join her on my return as there is a white ant treatment going on in my house and a section of my floor is being renovated.
I'm with Suzanne right now having a picnic with my wife, kids and in-laws, " Hrithik said in a press release.
Hrithik's statement was released Tuesday after the tabloid carried a major news item with the headline "Hrithik-Susanne split?". The article suggested that the couple is heading for splitsville.
The article said that trouble began to brew in their paradise after Hrithik started becoming cosy with his "Kites" co-star, Mexican actress Barbara Mori. But none of this is true.
A reliable source from the sets of Kites also says Hrithik and Susanne Roshan are very much together and the rumors of a split cannot and should not be believed.
We spoke to our source from Kites sets, "There is no split between them. Both Hrithik and Susanne are very happy together.
Susanne use to come on the sets and Barbara and Susanne got along very well too. They both talked all the time.
Hrithik and Barbara are very good friends but that doesn't mean that they are close with each other and are having an affair. Hrithik loves his family very much and he is not that kind of person who will let his family down."
Our source further adds, "Hrithik and Susanne are very hospitable people and they made sure Barbara felt comfortable during her first trip to India.
Her English has a heavy Spanish accent and she obviously doesn't know Hindi, so Hrithik also helped her communicate with other people. He was her translator on the sets."
Another source adds, "Hrithik is absolutely devoted to his wife and family.
He and Susanne had gone for a holiday to London and returned a couple of weeks ago after Kites shooting was wrapped up and so how can they split up suddenly?
This is not true and from London he went to SA because he had to shoot for an ad. Hence he didn't rush back to India, he returned when the shoot for the ad was completed."
The actor's spokesperson told: "It's a circus... Just a sensational story and nothing else."
Hrithik and Suzanne had been dating each other long before they tied the nuptial knot in 2000. They have two sons - Hrehaan, four and Hridhaan who will celebrate his first birthday next month.
