Hrithik had previously confessed that he saw Suzanne Khan across a traffic light and fell in love with her. Suzanne’s side of the story is slightly different. It appears that, Hrithik and she knew each other from the time when they were kids, since they lived in the same locality. But LOVE didn’t happen until she came back from the US, armed with an Associate Art Degree course in Interior Designing. Los Angeles and the US of A had done shy, reticent Suzanne, a great deal of good. America taught her to be herself and not be scared of doing something she believed in. She admits, “From an introvert, I was transformed into an independent girl!”And that’s the one quality Hrithik instantly liked and admired. He was still a raw actor, taking acting lessons and he hadn’t started working. So the fact that young Suzanne was making something of herself impressed him.Once Suzanne returned to India, she began to bump into Hrithik more and more often. But though there was a mutual admiration society happening, neither Hrithik nor Suzanne voiced their feelings, since both fight shy of declaring their emotions, generally. But the two became best friends and started to talk to and meet each other every day. And then, WHAM! It happened. Suddenly, the two realized that they were in love. Suzanne maintains that neither of them verbally made a commitment but they knew that what they had was RIGHT!People who know Suzanne and Hrithik say that she calls him her Bholunath, because she thinks he is too naive and sweet for this world. Ask her if Hrithik has changed in any way after success hit him headlong and she says, “He is still my sweet little boy I fell in love with. He hasn’t changed a bit.”What Suzanne apparently regrets, is the fact that Hrithik and she have lost all privacy and don’t get too much time together. But she has willingly accepted the situation as being part and parcel of the game.
Very few people know that Suzanne was heavily involved in the making of Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai. For three months her own business took a backseat, as she tried to concentrate on the pre-release work. Suzanne even took on the onus of outfitting Hrithik in Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai.Apparently, the only fear that was plaguing Suzanne before Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai released, was that the film had to do well. She had seen Hrithik working his bones off for his debut and she was worried about the fate of the film. Being a spiritual person, Suzanne even went to Shirdi with Hrithik to pray for the film.Suzanne is an integral part of the Roshan family, say family friends of the Khans and the Roshans. There is no family event where Suzanne is not present. Hrithik’s mother, Pinky Roshan and Suzanne, share a very close bond. In fact, when the Roshan family went on a long overdue holiday after the release of their film, it was Suzanne who accompanied them.
