"I am the third child of my parents and while growing up I know that I was lucky as my parents brought me up like a boy. There was no difference between me and my brothers. That is one lesson I learnt very young that children should always be treated equal," Sussanne, who is former wife of actor Hrithik Roshan, said on the stage.
