They have two sons - Hrehaan and Hridhaan. "I do not wish this news to dis-empower my fans and the people about the institution of marriage in any way. I am a firm believer in this institution and respect and honour it at the highest level...," he said. Last month Hrithik headed to an undisclosed location abroad for his medical treatment.

The "Krrish" star has been suffering bouts of headache. In July this year, he had undergone a brain surgery for removal of a clot at the Hinduja Hospital. "And once again I thank my fans for all the concern and prayers for my health, my treatment is going well and I should be able to resume my life in every way very soon. Thank you," he said.
