"This is my greatest tribute to love. Sussanne is and always will be the love of my life for the rest of my life. If her smiles are brighter without me my love for her must accomplish that. Unconditional," the actor wrote on his Facebook page.
Ending their 17-year-old relationship, Hrithik and Sussanne have decided to separate.
"Sussanne has decided to separate from me and end our 17 year relationship. This is a very trying time for the entire family and I request the media and the people to grant us our privacy at this time. I do not wish this news to disempower my fans and the people about the institution of marriage in any way," Hrithik said in a statement on Friday.
"I am a firm believer in this institution and respect and honour it at the highest level... And Once again I thank my fans for all the concern and prayers for my health, my treatment is going well and I should be able to resume my life in every way very soon. Thank you," he said.
Hrithik tied the knot with his childhood sweetheart, Suzanne in December 2000.
They have two sons.
