In early 2023, Suzanne revealed that her husband Akhil Mishra put his career on hold to help her learn Hindi so that she could get better roles in Hindi films. Suzanne said,

Her husband, Akhil Mishra died on 21 September 2023 at the age of 67 after he accidentally slipped from a stool in the kitchen when there was nobody at home. The actor was unwell for some time due to blood pressure-related issues. Suzanne was in Hyderabad for a shoot when the incident happened. 17
