Hrithik Roshan: Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and his former wife Sussanne Khan are giving us goals about how to function as a unit while raising their children. On March 25, Roshan took to his Instagram to post a picture of his wife lounging at his home in Mumbai. Apparently, she had kindly agreed to move in with him temporarily during the lockdown so that their boys aren’t emotionally affected during the lockdown. “It is unimaginable for me, as a parent, to think of having to be separated from my children at a time when the country is practising lockdowns. It is heart-warming to see the world come together as one in this time of deep uncertainty and the possibility of months of social distancing and potential lockdowns for several weeks perhaps,” said Roshan. He has also been posting pictures of his children lounging around his balcony as he enjoys the perfect moment of bliss.

I’m glad I put my feet up, so he can step into my shoes,” posted a blissful Rajput. But the gravy? Kapoor said: “She actually ate it.”
