Even as there are rumours that Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan may be working towards a truce to end their murky legal battle, Kangana’s former boyfriend Adhyayan Suman’s shocking revelations on Thursday gave a new twist to the tale. In an interview to DNA, Adhyayan paints Kangana as an abusive girlfriend who made his life “hellish” for the one year they dated.
Son of actor Shekhar Suman, Adhyayan also alleges that the National Award-winning actor “sabotaged” his career, did “black magic” on him and was “obsessed” with Hrithik Roshan. The legal case slapped by Hrithik and Kangana hinges on the fact how well they knew each other. While Kangana has alleged that they were intimate, Hrithik has maintained that they only had a purely professional relationship.
Here are some excerpts from the DNA interview. HT’s requests for comments from Adhyayan were not answered.
Adhyayan said he “felt bad” for Hrithik. “My sympathies are majorly with him and his family. I can imagine what they must be going through. I am not taking sides or saying that he’s right and she’s wrong, but I feel someone should speak up for Hrithik,” he said while insisting that he never saw “any feelings” from the Dhoom star’s side.
On Kangana’s texts to Hrithik
Adhyayan mentions an instance when Kangana asked him to change the chip of her old phone to transfer in her new phone. “While doing that I saw her inbox was all empty — which was okay as it was a new phone — but there were 50-70 messages to Hrithik Roshan.I knew she was eyeing him from back then, from the time she went to Las Vegas for Kites. Hrithik had hurt his arm and she had gone to see him. I knew her desperation to get to know him well,” he said in the interview.
He goes on to say that Kangana went on to dismiss the messages as “casual” when he asked her. “She made me believe that all those texts to him were casual. And I could believe that because whenever I met Hrithik and her together, he always maintained his distance. As a guy you can see it when there’s something brewing between two people especially when they are drinking and the masks come off. I never saw any feelings from his side.”
On physical abuse
Adhyayan mentions multiple instances of physical and verbal abuse in his one-year relationship. “One moment she made me feel loved and then in the next, it was like I was a nobody in her life! I was standing at the bar alone when Kangana walked up to me said some actor at the party was trying to grab her a**… so I told her, ‘Let’s go.’ She went back to doing her thing. Later she came and told me let’s go right now. I was walking down the stairs with her, when she turned around and slapped me!” The actor also mentions that Kangana verbally abused him and slapped him so hard that he started crying.
On black magic
The actor alleged that Kangana took him to astrologers and also tried to do black magic on him. “One day, Kangana called me at home in the night to do some puja. I reached at 11.30 pm as the puja was to start at 12. She had a small guest room in her apartment and she had covered it in black, including black curtains. There were some random statues of God, fire all around, some scary things (kept) puja. She asked me to chant some mantras, and locked me in. I was terrified. I didn’t do it and I came out and told her that I had. Then she started taking me to Pallavi frequently. One day, Pallavi said go to the graveyard at 12 am and throw these certain things. I was chilled to the bone! I didn’t go.”
