Have to say the @mybmc &their docs in Mumbai is amazing with dealing with Covid patients. The way they handled the situation & picked up my staff and took him to a facility was swift & timely. They showed kindness & humanity & treated him with dignity. Way to go @AUThackeray— Farah Khan (@FarahKhanAli) April 14, 2020
Meanwhile, Farah's sister Sussanne had shifted to ex-husband Hrithik Roshan's house before the lockdown was imposed earlier in March. Sussanne and Hrithik, who divorced in 2014, are parents to kids Hrehaan and Hridhaan. Sussanne temporarily moved to Hrithik's Juhu bungalow so that the kids can be with both parents during 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 practicing lockdowns. . It is heartwarming to see the world come together as one in this time of deep uncertainty and possibility of months of social distancing and potential lockdowns for several weeks perhaps . . While the world talks about humanity coming together, I think it represents more than just an idea especially for parents sharing custody of their kids. How to keep their kids close to them without infringing on the right of the other who also has an equal right to be with his/her children. . This is a picture of dear Sussanne (my ex wife) , who has graciously volunteered to temporarily move out of her home so that our children are not disconnected indefinitely from either one of us. . Thank you Sussanne for being so supportive and understanding in our journey of co-parenting. . Our children will tell the story we create for them. . I hope and pray that in order to safeguard the health of ourselves and our loved ones, we all find our way to express love, empathy, courage, strength with an open heart . . #beopen #bekind #bebrave #responsibility #coexist #empathy #strength #courage #oneworld #humanity #wecanfighththis #loveoverfear
Farah and Sussanne are the daughters of actor Sanjay Khan and Zarine Katrak. Their brother Zayed Khan is an actor while their sister Simone is an interior designer, just like Sussanne.
