Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut’s legal battle turned out to be the ugliest battle Bollywood has ever been a spectator to. From mud-slinging to shocking e-mails, a lot was revealed when the ex-files became public. While Kangana alleged that Hrithik was her ex, the Mohenjo Daro actor constantly denied it.
And soon the war of words turned into a legal battle. While the fans still await the final verdict on the case, Hrithik has maintained silence on the issue.
In fact, many came out in support of actor Kangana, nobody took Hrithik’s side apart from his ex-wife Sussanne Khan. And recently Hrithik broke his silence on the matter and said that he isn’t looking for any support from film industry as “when truth is on your side you don’t need support”.
Hrithik says he will speak up about the issue but only when the time is right, adding that “patience is the mother of all virtues”.
Hrithik and Kangana, who were apparently dating in the past, slapped a legal notice against each other for tarnishing their images in the public.
Issues began when Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her “ex” when she said in an interview that she fails to understand “why exes do silly things to get your attention”. The topic in discussion was Hrithik’s hand in getting Kangana replaced in the project by Sonam Kapoor in Aashiqui 3.
Hrithik opened up about the issue at the promotional event of his upcoming film Mohenjo Daro.
He was further questioned on the impact of the controversy on his stardom, and the actor gave an elusive response.
He said, “Let me answer your question in another way…I am here to answer your questions and I will answer them, but I definitely feel it will be unethical and unprofessional of me to use this platform for my own personal reasons. There is a lot I want to say and I will answer all your questions. It’s not elegant of me to speak on that right now. Patience is the mother of all virtues.”
On the work front, Hrithik will be next seen in Ashutosh Gowariker’s period drama Mohenjo Daro. The film, which also stars Pooja Hegde, is set to hit the screens on August 12.
