New Delhi: The Kangana Ranaut-Hrithik Roshan spat turned murkier on Thursday with the two sides muddying the waters with allegations and counter-allegations. At the core of the spat is Hrithik’s denial that the two ever had an affair. On Thursday, he broke his silence and questioned how two “high-profile celebrities” could have had a seven-year passionate affair without any evidence.
He also denied writing any emails to her, which it is claimed were purportedly sent by an imposter, and alleged that she had harassed him for four years now. He also added that the only proof that the actress could give about their alleged proximity was a photoshopped image of them at a party
But Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel countered the claim in no time. On the “only so-called proof presented of this alleged ‘relationship’ – the photoshopped picture — she tweeted a photograph and wrote: “Is that not you, who has grabbed Kangana’s waist like a creep and is smelling her neck, who seems disinterested.”
Calling him “stalker uncle,” Rangoli also shared screenshots of the actor’s email to her sister to prove that he used an iPad for communicating and not a laptop that he claims to have surrendered to the Cyber Crime department.
It is Hrithik’s claim that he had never met Kangana one-to-one in his lifetime. ‘‘Yes, we have worked together, but there has been no meeting in private. That’s the truth,” he said. He added he was “not fighting against an allegation of an affair”. “I’m in fact protecting myself from something far more serious, sensitive and destructive than that,” the actor said in a statement.
The row erupted last year when Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her “ex-boyfriend”. She said in an interview that she fails to understand “why exes do silly things to get your attention”.
The actress lodged a legal complaint against Hrithik for “misusing” the confidential emails and photographs of the time when they were together. Hrithik later filed a complaint with the cybercrime cell, claiming an imposter had been emailing Kangana from a bogus email ID, pretending to be him.
