Hrithik Roshan, Kangana Ranaut’s star wars: What’s happened so far
Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut dated, fought and dated again. Then something went so wrong that they slapped each other with legal notices alleging stalking, hacking and mental illness. We bring you a timeline of their relationship.
Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, who was recently embroiled in an ugly spat with his former Krrish 3 co-star Kangana Ranaut, has said the truth will come out and asserted that he doesn’t need any support as he has truth on his side.
While several actors including Vidya Balan have come out in support of Kangana, not many have come to Hrithik’s rescue. Asked if he was disappointed that not many people from the film world expressed support for him, Hrithik said, “When truth is on your side you don’t need support.”
“Be patient. Patience is the mother of all virtues,” the star said at the promotions of his upcoming film Mohenjo Daro.
Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut’s legal notice mess was probably the dirtiest squabble ever over a love affair gone wrong in Bollywood. Reports said that Hrithik and Kangana allegedly started dating when they were working together on Krrish 3.
Hrithik was still married to Sussanne at that point but the marriage was apparently troubled. However, once Kangana realised that Hrithik had no plans to divorce his wife, Kangana put a stop to their relationship, reported Deccan Chronicle.
Soon the couple’s divorce was publically announced. While there is no clarity whether the Krrish 3 co-stars’ romance led to Hrithik’s divorce,the Bang Bang star and Kangana were apparently back together after the announcement. Reports say that Hrithik even asked Kangana to marry him. Hrithik, through his tweets and legal notice, firmly denies that there was any relationship between the two at all.
They were together till the end of 2014 but something went wrong again. It is the sad end of the affair which is feeding a dirty legal mess right now. It all started with Kangana mentioning “silly exes” and Hrithik retaliating with this tweet...
Here are the claims and counter-claims from legal notices that Kangana and Hrithik have slapped on each other after sparring through interviews and social media.
THE LEGAL NOTICE
What he said
Hrithik sent the first legal notice, demanding an apology from Kangana for allegedly referring to him as her “silly ex” in an interview. “Since quite sometime you (Kangana) have been insinuating and trying to create an image within the film industry through print and social media and in public at large that there was some relationship between our client (Hrithik) and you,” the notice sent by Hrithik’s advocate Deepesh Mehta on February 26 said.
“Our client states that it is needless to mention that there was no relationship between him and you. You are trying to propagate a false idea and thereby gain publicity with ulterior motives and mala fide intentions,” Hrithik’s four-page notice claimed.
Hrithik, who was the first to send the legal notice to his Krrish 3 co-star, has demanded that Kangana apologises in a press conference and clears the air about their alleged affair which he firmly refutes.
What she said
In her 21-page reply on March 1, Kangana’s said in a notice, “She is not some dim-witted teenager who has been smitten and that whatever happened between the two of them was with full consent of both parties.”
“It is pertinent to record that your client throughout supported my client and fully involved her. He also did not make any attempt to block her. There is no communication from him to my client objecting to an emails. This proves that he received the emails with his participation and consent,” her legal notice said.
Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddique said, “Hrithik doing anything like this is the silliest thing he could have ever done. He has made a fool of himself. It’s been more than seven days we haven’t got any reply from them. We are waiting for them to react to the notice first as we have the facts and law on our side,” he said.
THE EMAIL ACCUSATION
What he said
According to Hrithik’s notice, the duo met on May 24, 2014 at Karan Johar’s birthday bash when Kangana approached the actor and thanked him for sending her an email appreciating her work in Queen. “To this, our client told you that he has not seen the movie yet. Our client further clarified to you that the email ID from which you received the mail was not his and he gave you his real email ID,” the notice said, adding that the actor has already lodged a complaint with the Cyber Cell of the city police about the said fake email ID in December, 2014.
“On coming to know of Hrithik’s real email ID, you (Kangana) sent a barrage of emails to him. Our client tried to ignore all the emails (total 1439) to him even though it amounted to mental harassment and stress. Besides sending emails to our client you have also been telling people in the film industry about your affair with him and then called our client a ‘silly ex’,” the notice said.
What she said
On her part, Kangana claimed that Hrithik had himself provided her the email ID on which they were corresponding with each other till May 2014.
“My client (Kangana) states that it was Hrithik who wanted to communicate from a newly created ID because of his impending divorce. In an effort to safeguard his name, image and reputation your client (Hrithik) time and again malafidely and in mischief hacked my client’s email ID and deleted all the mails sent by him,” Kangana in her notice said.
THE ASPERGER’S CLAIM
What he said
Hrithik alleged that during the outdoor shoot of Krrish 3, Kangana, in a drunken stupor, created a scene in front of him and that her sister Rangoli later apologised. “Your sister told my client that you are suffering from Asperger’s Syndrome and requested him to not tell anyone. Our client kept his word till date,” the notice said.
Hrithik has further alleged that Kangana had also got in touch with his father Rakesh Roshan who also conveyed that the actor was not interested in her.
What she said
Refuting all the allegations levelled against her, Kangana has claimed that she was not a stranger to Hrithik or his family members.
“In January 2011 and 2012 Kangana was invited for your (Hrithik) sister’s birthday parties. In 2013, you, your wife and your parents attended Kangana’s birthday party and then in September 2013 Kangana attended your father’s birthday party. All these parties were private affairs,” Kangana said in her notice.
“Your client (Hrithik) is living in his own illusionary narcissist world which starts and ends at self-aggrandising. Kangana, in her interview about her silly exes, never mentioned the name of your client (Hrithik). It was your client’s own unwarranted and uncalled reaction that made people look at him and assume that the ‘silly ex’ could be your client,” her notice said.
She further refuted Hrithik’s claim that she was suffering from Asperger’s Syndrome and said that she was not suffering from any such mental disorder. (With inputs from PTI)
