The Bollywood actor issued an official statement refuting any affair with Kangana Ranaut and said that his case of identity theft had been reactivateed earlier this month.
The Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut saga has been following an increasingly ugly path, what with legal notices being slapped on the two and explosive details from the actors’ relationship coming out in the open. While report after report has been making its way to the tabloids, Kangana and Hrithik have both been keeping mum on the entire affair. However, Hrithik seems to have finally broken his silence.
“Anything private that becomes public gives rise to speculation and unnecessary controversies simply because the general public are not privy to the whole truth.Out of respect for everyone involved, I followed the legal path to resolve the matter in question so as to keep it private. It was a breach of ethics to reveal the contents of a private legal notice. Dignified silence is dignified up to a point, but there comes a time when the silence needs to be broken to protect one’s name, family and image.The crux of the matter is that the mail id firstname.lastname@example.org does NOT belong to me. I had filed a complaint in this regard with Mumbai Cyber Crime cell on 12 December, 2014 when I learnt of this impersonator communicating with said person. I have absolutely NO CONNECTION with this ID. The entire issue stems from a case of identity theft which has carried over to me. My complaint was reactivated on March 5, 2016 and the crime unit has made headway in tracking this person down. Once that is done, the matter can be laid to rest.And finally, I believe that mental health is a grave and crucial issue which merits serious discussion. I would never address it flippantly nor use it as a personal attack. Any allegation to the contrary is a misrepresentation of facts. I was requested to keep silent and I did so for 2 years.”
After that, allegations and accusations followed from both sides, and finally reached this stage of a legal battle. Hrithik sent a legal notice to Kangana alleging her of ‘defaming’ him. Kangana’s 22-page legal response to Hrithik accused him of ‘threat’ and ‘intimidation’.
Hrithik and Kangana first worked together in the 2010 film Kites, the movie which is said to have been the beginning of the friendship between the two. After that, Roshan and Ranaut were seen together on the big screen in the 2013 film Krrish 3.
