New Delhi, Sept. 15 -- The spotlight's on actor Hrithik Roshan's interior designer wife, Sussanne. She has just been nominated for the prestigious global lifestyle awards - Quintessentially Asia Pacific - in the interior designer of the year category. The ceremony will be held in Hong Kong on November 1.
"I was totally taken aback when I got the mail about my nomination. Hrithik was the first person I shared the news with, as he has always supported my work. He will be accompanying me to the awards ceremony and these days, we often joke about how I have always tagged along with him for his award functions, and now it's his turn to do the same," says the star wife. Sussanne has been nominated for her Mumbai-based interiors store, The Charcoal Project.
The awards, launched in the UK in 2000, honour the finest luxury and lifestyle brands across globe. Other nominees in the category include big international names such as Thomas Hamel from Australia, Aedas, the international design firm that has also worked on the New Delhi Metro, and Alan Chan of Hong Kong.
Awed by the list of nominees, Sussanne says, "Winning or losing doesn't matter now. It was honourable enough that the organisers had come to check out my store and found it worthy."
