Bullies are not to be engaged with: Hrithik Roshan on Kangana and Sunaina controversies

Hrithik Roshan who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Super 30 is surrounded by buzz for all the wrong reasons. The actor has been dragged into numerous controversies, two of which are thanks to actress Kangana Ranuat. Hrithik spilled the beans recently in an interview with Hindustan times and opened up about his sister Sunaina and actress Kangana.

The actor on his legal stance with Kangana revealed there is no case. He went on to say, “I have come to realise that bullies have to be treated with a certain amount of patience, and not be engaged with. It is upon the civil society and those who claim to be just and fair to see and observe if there is harassment. Also, being who I am, if I choose to confront as per laws, I become the aggressor. If I withdraw from a film-clash that I know has been pre designed, then I become a weakling penning a sob story. I have learned to not get affected by either.”

He thinks the circus has been allowed to continue for six years now, and it means nobody is behaving rational or truthful. “Although, to be honest, my only grouse is with those supposedly ‘enlightened’ people who praise and often cheer this behaviour in the name of ‘new’ and ‘refreshing audacity’, without any desire to be rational or truthful. They are the enablers who have allowed this circus to continue for six years. There is no legal case that I directly have with the lady (Kangana), and the reason I cannot have one is because apparently a guy cannot be stalked in India.”

His kite co-star and her sister Rangoli recently also revealed that the Roshan family has assaulted his sister Sunaina for rebelling against them and dating a Muslim guy. When asked where does the matter stand he revealed, “This is an internal, private and sensitive matter for me and my family. In didi’s current state, it would not be correct of me to speak about her.”

He added, “It is an unfortunate situation that probably many families are going through and are as helpless as we are, owing to stigmas and an incredibly weak medical infrastructure in this country for such cases. Also, religion is not even a thing in my family. It has never been discussed or been given importance whatsoever in my entire life. And I would like to believe that it is obvious to the world by now.”

Hrithik’s next is based on the life of mathematician Anand Kumar. He is known to have trained financially underprivileged students for IIT-JEE in Bihar. Directed by Vikas Bahl the film will release on Friday.
