Hrithik and Sussanne Roshan must be given privacy to sort out their issues, said Abhishek Bachchan who has been a close friend to the couple.
"If you read the statement, Hrithik Roshan has requested his privacy to be respected and that is exactly what we should do. We should respect that privacy and give them strength during this trying time," said Abhishek.
"I really feel that it will be wonderful if the media backs off and let them do what they wish to. It is very nice that he has issued a statement, his request for privacy should be respected. I will do so and so should you all," Abhishek Bachchan told PTI.
Abhishek's reaction comes after Hrithik Roshan issued a statement recently announcing the split from wife Sussanne.
The couple married in December 2000 and have two children named Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
