Former cou­ple Hrithik Roshan and Sus­sanne Khan are of­ten spot­ted spend­ing qual­ity time to­gether with sons Hred­haan and Hre­haan. The 43-year-old ac­tor is happy to be on friendly terms with his ex-wife and says: “Sus­sanne and I are not try­ing to set any ex­am­ple. This is how we are. This is the kind of per­son I am and I don’t think I can have any­thing that is not peace­ful. Re­la­tion­ships should be healthy, mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial and adding growth to both the par­ties.”

Child­hood sweet­hearts Hrithik and Sus­sanne got mar­ried in 2000, and parted ways on ami­ca­ble terms in 2014. There has been no news of bit­ter­ness be­tween the two, and Sus­sanne is of­ten seen root­ing for Hrithik’s films.

The ac­tor be­lieves he has al­ways sought peace in ev­ery sit­u­a­tion and that can’t change. “I’m not de­pen­dent on an­other per­son, be it a friend or fam­ily or Sus­sanne, to have sim­i­lar thoughts as me. I’m a peace­ful per­son. The other per­son’s opin­ion or in­ten­tions don’t mat­ter be­cause what­ever the case is, I’m the one who seeks peace and I’ll make sure it stays like that.”

On the pro­fes­sional front, Hrithik is bask­ing in the suc­cess of his re­cent re­lease, Kaa­bil, and cred­its past fail­ures for teach­ing him to move for­ward. “When­ever you get proved wrong, that is your ac­cess point to grow. Suc­cess means you’re stag­nant. It is the time pe­riod post suc­cess which is dan­ger­ous and if you don’t try to learn, things will only get stag­nant,” he says.
