As the couple decided to part ways, there were rumours of Arjun Rampal's involvement in the split following the alleged growing friendship between Sussanne and the model-actor. "You can't blame anyone for this. It is sad to blame anyone. We are close knit of friends... its not right to blame anyone," Sussanne who made her first appearance after the announcement of their separation, said at an event here.
Earlier, Arjun too had rubbished reports of his involvement through a statement.
On December 13, Hrithik had said in a statement that it was Sussanne who has decided to separate from him and end their 17-year-old relationship. But the reason for the spilt was not mentioned.
"There is no reason sometimes you have to take a call. It is just a situation," Sussanne said.
The couple got married in 2000 and have two children Hrehaan and Hridhaan. Even Hrithik's filmmaker father Rakesh Roshan, who was present at another event, refused to talk about the matter.
All he said was, "not now. It (statement from Hrithik) has been out and everyone has read it."
