Mumbai: Hrithik Roshan recently issued a statement requesting his friends and colleagues from coming out in his support over the social media over his war of words with Kangana Ranaut. Hrithik broke his silence after four years over the issue last week and a lot of his industry friends like Farhan Akhtar, Karan Johar, Dia Mirza, Twinkle Khanna and Yami Gautam came out in his support.
“This is an unfortunate issue and not a contest of sorts. Before this is dangerously hijacked into a man vs woman, insider vs outsider, privileged vs non privileged issue we must stop. Please don’t support me. Don’t take sides,” read a part of Hrithik Roshan’s post.
Hrithik Roshan mentioned the back-and-forth between himself and Team Kangana as “a painfully unfortunate episode,” adding that: “I have had to give out my side of truth under some very compelling circumstances.” Earlier, a source close to the Roshans claimed that thinking about the impact on his children Hrehaan and Hridhaan made Hrithik open up about his side of things. In his previous post, Hrithik had termed the exchange between him and Kangana as “dirty perverse mess” adding “families suffer, children suffer.”
Kangana referred to him as a ‘silly ex’ last year in an interview, prompting a legal notice from him. While Hrithik alleged that the person Kangana had been exchanging emails with was an imposter, she struck back at him with allegations of slut-shaming her by circulating private photos and videos. The Roshans have filed a 29-page complaint against Kangana.
Kangana Ranaut has not responded to Hrithik’s statements so far but her sister Rangoli Chandel has been actively tweeting against Hrithik.
