The Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut controversy refuses to die down. With Hrithik’s 29-page police complaint lodged for the second time in April this year, it seems increasingly clear that Kangana’s accusations levelled at Hrithik have some gaping holes in the form of unanswered questions.

A source close to Hrithik, not wishing to be named, says, “While Kangana decided to rake up this controversial issue, which is under investigation, right before the release of her film Simran, Hrithik also has decided to not take it lying down. After all, he is the aggrieved party, as he was systematically stalked and harassed by Kangana, who sent him more than 3,000 mails, some of them extremely explicit.”

The source points out that Hrithik’s police complaint, a copy of which is with HT, raises some critical questions. Hrithik Roshan received more than 3,000 mails from Kangana Ranaut’s e-mail ID, in 2014. Kangana has alleged that Hrithik hacked into her account and sent all those mails to himself. “If that’s the case, how did Hrithik get hold of so many of her intimate pictures, which are attached with those mails? How is it even possible for Hrithik to write long descriptive mails where [Kangana] is describing her daily routine in detail? The mails also contain the names of people that Kangana met, and I’m sure Hrithik would not know so much about her friends, ” says the source.

In a TV show, Kangana recently alleged that she had a relationship with Hrithik and they broke up in 2013. And that after the success of her film, Queen, Hrithik started chasing her again. “But if you consider the 3,000 intimate mails attached with Hrithik’s police complaint, they all were written after Queen’s release — during the period of July 2014 to December 2014. Not just this, in one of her e-mails, she attached a photo where she is seen doing a havan to pray for the success for Hrithik’s 2014 release, Bang Bang. Could Hrithik have created all that? And why? Doesn’t this inconsistent timeline say a lot?” asks the source.

“While Hrithik submitted his mobile phone, laptop and all other electronic devices to the police for a forensic examination, Kangana has told the police that her phone fell in the swimming pool and her laptop has gone for repairs. If Kangana is the victim, as she claims to be, why is she not co-operating with the police to bring out the truth?” asks the source.

HT contacted both Hrithik and Kangana for their reaction, and Kangana directed us to her lawyer.


All hell broke loose in January 2016 when Kangana referred to Hrithik as a “silly ex” when there had been no previous indication of an affair.

Hrithik then revealed that he had been harassed via hundreds of e-mails from Kangana in 2014 and had complained to her sister.

When Kangana responded by saying that he had sent those e-mails to himself, Hrithik lodged an official police complaint.

Kangana’s sister, Rangoli Chandel, in a tweet, posted: “Young beautiful talented rich girl like Kangana doesn’t need to stalk an uncle like you, u were after her she was never after you, Hrithik (sic)”.

When contacted, Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee said that he had already issued a statement in Kangana’s defence. A part of the statement says: “...The sequence of events and the facts of the case speak for itself. If Mr Hritik really wants to clear his name and if this is the reason to bring the private complaint on record after six months, then he simply ought to answer the questions which were publicly put to him in April 2016, instead of using such diversionary tactics. Truth can easily be determined as the sequence of events and the facts of the matter cannot be changed by anyone (sic).”

Meanwhile, in an interview with DNA, Hrithik’s father, filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, was quoted as saying, “We are not loose talkers. We don’t believe in making wild unsubstantiated accusations... We gave our side of the truth to the [police] cyber crime branch on April 8, 2017. We submitted all the authentic, relevant documents with all the e-mails and electronic gadgets. It’s now up to the authorities to decide who’s telling the truth. We’ve always believed in the power of the truth. I was taught to be honest by my father (music composer Roshan) and I’ve taught Hrithik the same. In this matter, the truth will be out soon.”
