The story goes that Hrithik Roshan turned into a scared rabbit, when Kangana Ranaut started hinting that he was her ex. Roshan Jr felt that she would name him in one of her interviews and sent a legal notice to her through his lawyer Deepesh Mehta saying, that she has been tarnishing his image so much that it amounts to defamation. We hear, the notice ran into six pages.
A source says in that notice, Roshan told her that she should call for a press conference and render an apology to him, spelling out that she had not hinted at Hrithik Roshan as her “silly ex”. Else he would make all her correspondence to him public. Ranaut realised that this was nothing but blackmail. She was not going to take this lying down. The ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ actress retaliated with a legal notice through her lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui with a 21-page reply, charging him with intimidation and threat under sections of the Indian Penal Code.
The ‘Queen’ actress’s argument was that she had not taken his name per se anywhere, so how can it be termed as defamation? A very anxious and uptight Roshan has been calling up his close friends in the industry and informing them what his ‘Krrish 3’ co-star has done to him.
For those who’ve come in late, the Roshan-Ranaut mudslinging match began, when Ranaut was asked by a section of the media if it was true that Roshan had got her ousted from ‘Aashiqui 3’. The fiery actress replied, “Yes, many lame rumours are doing the rounds, even a dumbass can tell where these rumours are coming from! I don’t know why exes do silly things to get your attention. For me, that chapter is over and I don’t dig graves.”
The equation between the ‘Kites’ co-stars got uglier when Roshan shot back on Twitter, “Ther r more chances of me having had an affair with d Pope dan any of d (Im sure wonderful) women d media has been naming. Thanks but no thanks”.
And then, Ranaut being Ranaut, shot back on another media platform, saying, “I respect the other person’s opinion. It’s very likely that a person can have a different perspective of the same situation or rather the past. But then, stick to your stand. Don’t contradict yourself and slyly pursue people, spy on them and chase them. So, we sign and seal the deal and then move on.”
