The year 2014 kicked off amid an open separation of Hrithik Roshan and his childhood sweetheart Susanne Khan but both were granted divorce in 2014, making it one of the top and senstional divorces in years to come.
Closing the account of divorces in 2014 was made Pooja Bhatt, who tweeted her impending divorce with Manish Makhija, ending their 11-year marriage.
Daughter of director Mahesh Bhatt, Pooja when questioned by some media outlets, replied on Twitter writing: “To all those who care & especially those that don’t my husband Munna & Me have decided to part ways after 11 glorious years of marriage. Our split as some might call it is amicable & we hold each other in the highest esteem for now and forever. The reason I explain Is because we are both part of the public domain. Our friends, well wishers & foes are free to now speculate.”
In a dramatic feedback after some time, she tweeted again thanking friends and foes. “Staggered by the love & support displayed by intimate strangers as well as the silence from most of my friends! Love you all!”. Pooja Bhatt and Manish married in 1997 after acting together on the sets of “Paap”.
Another major divorce in 2014 was Hrithik and Sussanne, who were friends next door and the divorce came after ill-health and brain surgery of Hrithik was made known to all. They were granted divorce in November 2014 and the custody of their sons — Hrehaan and Hridaan — would be a joint one.

However, she told Mumbai Mirror: “Our differences revolved mainly around my company, Four Frames Sound Company. Matters snowballed and our egos came in the way. The situation got out of hand. But let me clarify that I did not ask for Rs 80 crore.”
Another couple is that of erstwhile actor Rahul Roy and Rajlaxmi. The Aashiqui hero, told Mid-Day that Rajlaxmi would still remain an integral part of his life, the way Hrithik Roshan said about their divorce.
