Arjun Rampal, who has been in the eye of the storm ever since his friends Hrithik and Sussanne Roshan announced their decision to separate a few days ago, sent out a statement to the media.

He said, "It's very sad when friends close to you take a decision to separate. These are the hardest times for them and we must be sensitive towards this decision, rather than creating speculation and rumours. I read in the news at the same time as you all about my involvement in this marriage. It saddens me deeply that rumours become inevitable when celebrities go through such times. Mehr and I wish them only peace and love through these times and support them as friends should and we wish them and their families well always."
