Saba Azad and Hrithik Roshan have been together for a while now. They are often spotted together at events, dinner and lunch dates. The couple also goes on vacations together and also both become part of each other’s family gatherings. Also, both make each other feel special with mushy posts on social media. In an interview, Saba opened up about getting hate on social media for her relationship with Hrithik. She also spoke about the paparazzi culture.
In an interview with India Today, Saba said that she is a very private person and she barely steps out as she loves being at home. ''Hence, it was very daunting in the beginning. It was scary. I won’t lie. I felt exposed in a way I never felt before. However, you understand and empathise that I may not relate to paparazzi culture but that guy who is taking a photo is doing his job. There is some space in the market which is curious about other people’s lives. He is filling that space. I am existing and doing my job,’’ she said.
On the hate she received after making her relationship public with Hrithik, the singer-actor said, Saba said, “It’s taken me quite sometime to come to a place where I treat everything else as white noise because hatred is palpable. I am not made of stone, it hits you. You feel like sh*t. There are days when you wake up and you wonder ‘what did I do to anyone?’ ‘What did I do to you?’ ‘I am living my life, you live yours’ ‘why are you waiting for my blood?’’’
She added, ‘’But at some point, you realise you are not responsible for how people think and what they are projecting on you are what they are going through. It has nothing to do with you. Once you realise that, peace prevails.”
Hrithik was earlier married to Sussanne Khan. They have two sons – Hrehaan and Hridhaan. They got divorced in 2014. Saba is cordial with Sussanne and they are often seen together at family functions and get-togethers.
