New Delhi: Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan once again expressed his anger and disgust on numerous reports of separated wife Sussanne Khan`s 400 crore divorce settlement demand.
In a statement issued to a leading English daily, the actor slammed the media for their `immoral` and `unethical` behaviour and also for intruding in his personal life. Very clearly dismissing the reports, the honey-eyed actor said that Sussanne has not demanded even a single penny from him, so there is no question of alimony.
Earlier, the actor took to micro-blogging website Twitter to express his astonishment over the hullabaloo. He had tweeted:
Fabricated news articles. Demeaning my loved ones. Testing my patience

Hrithik and Sussanne were one of the most happening couples in the B-town until they announced their separation in December last year. The two filed for divorce in April this year, ending their 13-year-old marriage by calling it "individual choices".
Hrithik and Sussanne tied the knot in 2000 and are parents to two boys- Hrehaan and Hridaan.
Hrithik Roshan`s statement:
"Disgusted with all this manipulated Alimony bullshit in an effort to tarnish reputation. When people separate, they DON`T STOP being FAMILY! When a man is too strong to be affected or attacked, they target his family instead. No one DARE attack my family like this. This is my sincere request to all that have intruded into my private life like vultures trying to use my separation to project their own frustrations. Please stop this unethical and immoral behavior. Sussanne has not demanded a single penny so the question of `Alimony` does not arise! She is an independent working girl and heads her own self built design company. Our relationship never was and never will be about money! How dare some people attack a person`s identity and character and then turn it into a joke is unfathomable and downright disgusting! Stop trying to dig for dirt where there is only peace, love and harmony because that`s the kind of people we were brought up to be by our loving parents. It is sad that I have to put out a statement like this but sometimes the truth needs to be louder to obliterate the lies. Shame on all of you who wrote about this and shame on all the people who had a good laugh about it."
