The Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut spat is like a wildfire which goes on spreading. Even as the lawyers of the stars release statements every day damning the other side, an old picture of the two Bollywood actors has surfaced in which they are seen hugging.
Kangana’s supporters are citing the ‘leaked’ picture as a proof that the two were actually a couple and their love went sour. Hrithik and his legal team has maintained that there was a purely professional relationship between the two and the Dhoom star didn’t know Kangana socially. However, it is too early to say if the picture proves a social relationship between the two stars. It is not even clear who leaked the picture.

According to a Times of India report, this picture was clicked at a private party during Krrish’s pre-production. The ugly fight between the two started when Kangana referred to an unnamed star as her “silly ex” who is trying to get her attention. Hrithik reacted with a tweet saying he would rather date the Pope than a Bollywood actress with whom the media is linking him.
It soon denigrated into an ugly public and legal battle between the two stars, with both coming up with allegations and counter-allegations against the other. They then slapped legal notices on each other for defamation.
Hrithik, who was the first to send the legal notice to Kangana, has demanded that she apologise in a press conference publicly and clear the air about their alleged affair, which he firmly refutes. Kangana sent a counter-notice to the actor, alleging him of ‘slut-shaming’ by circulating private mails and photos.
She will also submit her electronic devices for forensic examination. Hrithik contends that Kangana was interacting with his impostor on email while she has claimed the actor had created a new account just to communicate with her. She has also alleged that Hrithik later hacked her email account. The 29-year-old actress will record her statement as a witness in the imposter case filed by Hrithik on April 30 and his legal team claims it will prove the truth.
