Hrithik Roshan tried slut shaming Kangana but she won’t succumb: Lawyer

The Hrithik Roshan, Kangana Ranaut war is far from over as the lawyers of both sides trade accusations again.

A lot of delay and drama went into Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut recording her statement with the police on Saturday, alleged Hrithik Roshan’s legal team on Sunday. The two stars are locked in a public and legal tussle ever since Kangana termed Hrithik her “silly ex” in a January interview.

“We welcome the move. It has taken so long for them to take this basic first step. Recording of statement is the first step in any investigative process. A lot of delay and drama has happened before this first step.

“It’s not for them to say if police is happy with them or not, let that come from the investigative agencies. Let’s not try and confuse the matter further with various statements. Let the investigation speak for itself,” said Hrithik’s lawyers in a statement.

Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddique hit back with claims of slut shaming on Hrithik’s part. He also said she is fully convinced that there is no impostor, who sent the emails as Hrithik claims. On Sunday, Hrithik had tweeted to his fans, advising them not to damn someone’s character, “It is characterless to judge another. Whatever may be the case. Strangle d anger. channelize love.”

Siddique said, “My client Kangana Ranaut shall never succumb to any pressure..... The world including people from the film industry need to learn that in today’s changing time, no woman is scared of anything if she is fiercely determined, and has the truth by her side. Some common people who had intervened had a fixed agenda of only scaring my client and hiding the truth, which could not happen.”

The lawyer accused the Bang Bang star of “slut shaming” Kangana to strengthen his case. “To have an edge over my client he has tried everything within his means including slut-shaming, changing his public relations team, obtaining private cyber report which was paid for by him and also by changing his lawyer. However nothing is going to help as Hrithik Roshan cannot change the facts of the matter.”

“My client knows and is fully convinced that there is no impostor as had there really been one, than Hrithik himself would have immediately acted on my client’s sister complaint which he received on his correct email id on May 25, 2014,” he said, adding “His own acts of commissions and omissions after receipt of the said emails from my client’s sister, coupled with his blatant lies from time to time, speak volumes of his conduct”.

“A lot of things will soon unfold in due course of time,” he added.
