Actor Hrithik Roshan says his wife, Sussanne has changed him in more ways than one and credits her for teaching him one of the most valuable lessons in life. The hunky actor recalls the day he had a big fight with his mom (he describes it as ‘some sort of an argument’) Pinky Roshan. “When I was young, I was very stubborn. I’d never see the other person’s point of view. I’d never saying sorry or apologise to anyone either. I clearly remember once I met Sussanne with a very long face and when she asked me, ‘What’s wrong?’, I replied that I had an altercation with my mom and I was not too happy about it,” Hrithik says, remembering the days when he was courting his girlfriend and now wife, Sussanne, a good decade back. Sussanne, he says, came up with a wonderful idea that at first, seemed to ridiculous to Roshan. “She told me to go and give my mother a big hug. In my family, we were never used to hugging each other. I don’t know why but it was just something that we never did. But after Sussanne told me to do so I garnered enough courage and went up to the terrace where my mother was sitting. I walked up to her and hugged her tight. I could see tears rolling down her cheeks,” says Roshan. 


The actor is now into the 10th year of his marriage to Sussanne and he says that it is this quality of his wife that has managed to keep the magic of their marriage intact. “It (the hug incident) was the most valuable thing that she taught me in my life. Even now, when we fight and then we decide to end it, it’s just a matter of walking up to each other and giving each other a hug. Sussanne definitely changed me as a person and I must add that she has made me a better person,” says Roshan. Even though she is a star wife, Sussanne has always avoided the limelight and Hrithik says that had she not been there, leading a normal life would have been very tough for him. “We actors always remain busy but with Sussanne being around, I know that everything in my life is taken care of. Sussanne manages me and my two children and the best part is that even before I wonder as to how she’s going to handle so many things at once — it’s all done,” he concludes.
