The Krrish 3 star  made his first public appearance this year after his much hyped split with wife Sussanne Roshan

Hrithik Roshan was a stark contrast to what his wife Sussanne Khan looked post their separation at her first public appearance. Sussanne had a starry store launch sans Hrithik and looked pretty in a little red dress, not to mention there were no signs of a broken marriage. She even braved questions on her split with star husband alone and with a smile. Hrithik on the other hand made an appearance at Mumbai’s three different destinations last week for a brand endorsement and we couldn’t help but notice his tired eyes, unkempt hair and missing charm, even as he tried hard to groove with fans and make a happy picture. Blame Hrithik’s new hairdo, hair colour or then the dull attire, the Greek god wasn’t at his best. Hrithik Roshan reminded us of his character from Kites, we wonder if this beard and hairdo is a look for one of his upcoming films or then is his health issues have taken a toll on him or is it just a heartbroken lover trying to deal with a 17-year-old relationship gone kaput.

This is not the first time Hrithik has stepped out after a bad phase. The actor made a few public appearances last year, one when he stepped out of his surgery from the hospital, he even looked hale and hearty at the Janmashtami celebrations and even when there were rumours of troubled marriage during his father Rakesh Roshan’s 60th birthday Jr Roshan looked dapper, but this time HR was different? Is it just the split or then have his family members distanced themselves from the star that is making the star so grim?

BollywoodLifers, do you think that Hrithik Roshan‘s personal life has taken a toll on his public appearances?
