MUMBAI: Unless Hrithik Roshan and his wife Suzanne, who separated this week, sort out the issue amicably, it could turn out to be the costliest divorce in Bollywood history.
Since Suzanne has decided to end her 13-year marriage to Hrithik, she could file for divorce in the court to get her part of the Roshans’ property which is estimated to be over Rs 5,000 crore.
The couple have two sons – Hrehaan (7) and Hridhaan (5) – who are currently said to be with Suzanne who has been staying separately from Hrithik for months at the family’s Bandra flat which is said to be worth over Rs 25 crore.
In case of a legally decided divorce, this flat will go to Suzanne. The couple have another flat in Singapore that was bought during the shooting of Krrish 3 and is in Suzanne’s name. So this will go to her.
Then, Suzanne, who is an interior designer by profession, runs two design stores which are registered in her name though the money to buy them came from Hrithik Roshan.
She will also be entitled to half of Hrithik’s other properties and assets. It has been reported that Hrithik owns properties worth Rs 1,500 crore in his name. That means Suzanne will end up with assets worth Rs 750 crore!
Properties listed in Hrithik’s name include a bungalow in Juhu, four floors at the Lotus Building in Andheri, and 100 acres of land in Bangalore. Then there are crores of rupees that Hrithik has earned from endorsements and royalties.
But the properties that Hrithik will inherit from his maternal grandmother running into crores may not fall within the ambit of the divorce settlement. These properties (from Hrithik’s nani) include a Juhu bungalow, a Santacruz office and farmland.
Apart from these properties, the Roshan family also owns their Kavita bungalow in Juhu, the Commerce Centre building in Andheri and their film library.
