Hrithik, Kangana saga: A publicity stunt?

Surprisingly, 29 years old Kangana Ranaut and 42 years old Hrithik Roshan are in news and things went very ugly between them. They exchanged legal notices after the actress appeared to refer to Hrithik as a ‘silly ex’ in one of her interview. Kangana has also been named in a First Information Report (FIR) filed by Hrithik against an ‘imposter’ who allegedly corresponded with Kangana pretending to be him. With legal notices being slapped on Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan, an explosive detail from the actors’ relationship is coming out in the open. There seems to be no respite for the actors from the fans and media glare. A new twist to the entire episode is that both of them are adapting the ‘No hiding’ policy against each other.

Kangana was summoned by the cybercrime cell of the Mumbai police and asked to submit her laptop to be investigated – something that she has reportedly failed to do so. Soon after that Kangana’s lawyer said that the actress was willing to drop the matter if Hrithik Roshan apologized. Kangana and Hrithik allegedly dated for sometime after co-starring in the movies Kites and Krrish 3. Recently, Hrithik Roshan has tweeted that the chances of him dating a pope are much higher than the women and the media has linked the tweet with her. Though, the tweet did not directly mention anybody, but it came after Kangana called him an “ex” in an interview with PinkVilla, that’s why media see it on her context. This tweet resulted in a legal notice to him from a Christian body.

The two reportedly ended on a bad note since Hrithik, who is very careful about his image, rubbished the relationship rumours, and this naturally did not go down too well with Kangana, who is open and wordy. The report quoted a source saying that Kangana was upset because Hrithik has been making her lookalike a desperate stalker when that was definitely not the case. After the alleged link up and resultant legal battle between him and Kangana Ranaut, the fight has gone a step ahead. Now, Kangana Ranaut wants to see her ‘Kites’ co-star behind the bars.

After verbal war, Kangana lodged a complaint against Hrithik alleging that he has been circulating her private photographs to third parties. Kangana’s lawyer has written to the Mumbai Police Commissioner demanding strict action against Hrithik for circulating photos of her client to “non-concerned third parties” that are wilfully outraging client’s modesty and imputing unchastity to her.

Hrithik Roshan married Sussanne Khan, daughter of actor Sanjay Khan, on 20th December 2000. Hrithik had known Sussanne since the age of twelve. They moved among the same circle of friends while they were growing up in Juhu but Hrithik was shy to confess his feelings. Sussanne became his girlfriend for 4 years before their marriage. The couple has two sons, Hrehaan and Hridhaan. On 13th December 2013, Hrithik announced that he and his wife Sussanne has decided to separate and end their 17-year-long relationship. Their divorce was finalized by Bandra family court on 1st November 2014.

There were speculations that Sussanne walked out of Hrithik’s life because she was in love with Arjun Rampal, who is common friend of Hrithik and Sussanne. Some even reported that the reason for their divorce is Hrithik’s extra marital affairs with other actresses. As their divorced is settled, now Kangana episode brings back Hrithik in news for all the wrong reasons.

After investigating the case, Mumbai police are questioning Kangana’s credibility due to her reluctance to co-operate. She has refused to hand over her laptop to the cops saying her computer had a virus and everything got deleted. Hrithik, however, has obligingly co-operated as much as he could. With new twists and turns every day, the fight seems to be getting gloomier.

Soon after legal notices and statements, she came up with the new set of dialogues. She said, “If the other party who sued me for defamation and asked for a public apology can prove defamation, I promise to apologise publicly. I request the other party to respond to the legal matter which they have started and not turn this defamation suit into a media trial and judgement. If they are sincerely seeking an apology then they must help me understand their perspective because blackmailing or threatening won’t work with me.”

Kangana further said that she isn’t scared by the constant blackmailing and won’t apologise just because she is being threatened. Known to speak her mind, Kangana added that she is not ashamed of her past and “slut-shaming” won’t work.

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. Looking at this controversy, somewhere I have a gut-feeling that there is some movie in which both of them are working together, and entire defamation saga is a ‘publicity stunt’. If not then both the actors should understand that their fans like them the way they are. Looking at their own credibility, they should stop making mockery of the entire issue.
