Hrithik released an official statement on Sussanne's decision to part ways with him after a relationship of 17 years - the duo dated four years before tying the knot Dec 20, 2000.
At the red carpet of the Colors Golden Petal Awards, Preity was asked to comment on the news.
She said: "I have one thing to say to the media with lots of humbleness...these are very personal moments for people, and please don't slander either him (Hrithik Roshan) or her (Sussanne). It is a very personal matter."
"I think you have to give them that space. It is very sad when everybody has their own personal comments," she added.
Karan, who shares a friendly bond with Hrithik and has worked with him in films like "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham" and "Agneepath", also refrained from commenting.
"It is too personal to them (Hrithik and Sussanne) and, therefore, personal to us. So, I feel very uncomfortable talking about, especially anything too personal to close friends on a national platform," he added.
However, actor Anil Kapoor is hopeful about the couple's re-union in future.
"Hrithik is a family friend. He is like a younger brother to me, even Sussanne. I am very very fond of both of them. But I think these are the things that really happen in a relationship," Anil, who shares a friendly bond with the couple, said.
"I am very optimistic and hope they get back together," he added.
On Dec 13, Hrithik announced his wife Sussanne's decision to split from him after 13 years of marriage.
Together, the couple has two sons - Hrehaan and Hridhaan.

Marriage is a very private matter and the ending of such a relationship is always painful for all parties involved. The kids are the ones that get the worst of it! Poor little things. I hope that they can maintain a relationship that will be in the best interests of their kids!!
I also think that KJo and Preity's decision not to comment is absolutely the right one. If it were my friends I would refuse to comment too! It is not something you can discuss in public as if it is entertainment, coz it is not!!
All the best to both Hrithik and Sussane who appear to be nice people. But sometimes even nice people's relationships fail. It is a fact of life!
