Ever since Hrithik Roshan finally opened up on the Kangana Ranaut controversy, fans have been wondering what made him remain silent for the last two years and why did he choose to speak now.

The ugly, public fight between Bollywood stars Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut has been going on for more than two years now but Hrithik has broken his silence only now. The reason why he decided to speak up after maintaining a “dignified silence” all this time is his kids Hrehaan and Hridhaan, a person close to his family has said. Kangana has replied to Hrithik’s statement via her lawyer, asking the actor to answer her nine questions.

In his Twitter statement, Hrithik said how he felt compelled to put forth his viewpoint so that he could “defend the truth because when truth suffers, the collective consciousness of society suffers…Closer to home, families suffer. Children suffer.”

On the condition of anonymity, the source revealed, “Hrithik was told that now wasn’t the time to stay silent. They all sat down and decided that Hrithik needed to take charge of the situation. If you read the last line of his statement, it mentions how children suffer if justice is denied. That is a very telling line. Does anybody have any idea what his children have gone through because of this circus?”

Hrithik’s statement is said to be issued after a heart-to-heart with father Rakesh Roshan. “Hrithik was insulted on Aap Ki Adalat (Kangana’s episode). That affected him deeply. His family told him that if he doesn’t speak up now, it will mean two things — either he is guilty or he is too weak to respond. Neither was the case, so why shouldn’t he speak up?”

The person further clarified that Hrithik has no personal or professional rivalry with Kangana and said, “He spoke only after weeks (of the theatrical release of Simran). The intent is not to malign anyone but to save one’s dignity.”

Over the past week, a news channel dug out the entire complaint Hrithik filed against Kangana in April 2017 and later her emails to the star. A day later, Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel tweeted a screenshot of an email, allegedly sent by Hrithik, questioning his claims of being innocent and having never met her in private.

While Hrithik has issued detailed statements on Facebook and Twitter, Rangoli and Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee are responding to new questions being raised on Kangana’s side.
