The Hrithik Roshan-Sussanne split is the latest in a series of troubled marriages in Bollywood, which often celebrates the institution of marriage and sells dreams weaved around eternal love and long-lasting romance.
Hrithik announced yesterday that Sussanne, his wife for 13 years, has decided to separate from him, he was only confirming what was being widely believed - that the marriage of Bollywood's "superhero" was on the rocks.
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap's marriage with actress-wife Kalki Koechlin is in trouble and the couple has announced they are separating.
"Me and Kalki are separating. We are taking time off from each other to figure things out. We are not divorcing. We request the media to please respect our privacy and give us our space and not speculate," the couple said in a joint statement in November.
At an event last night, Kashyap side-stepped questions related to his marriage, saying he would not like to publicly comment on it.
But according to reports, the couple may file for divorce amid Kashyap's rumoured proximity to his 'Gangs of Wasseypur' actor Huma Qureshi.
Kalki, an Indian of French descent, and Kashyap, director of films like 'Black Friday', 'Gulal' and 'Gangs of Wasseypur', fell in love while working on 'Dev D' in 2009. The two got married in April 2011.
Earlier this year, Chitrangada Singh was forced to deny that her marriage to golfer Jyoti Randhawa was headed for divorce.
Bollywood was also abuzz with rumours about actors Ranvir Shorey and Konkona Sen-Sharma heading for a divorce.
It was reported that Konkona had moved out of Ranvir's house and was staying with her actress-mother Aparna Sen. But the couple, who has a two-year-old son, Harun, never spoke about the matter.
Then there are stars like Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan, who opted for divorce and later married again.
