NEW DELHI: Hrithik Roshan has tweeted a lengthy statement about the feud with Kangana Ranaut that has hogged headlines for a year-and-a-half now. The 43-year-old actor claims that he never spent any time alone with Kangana – they starred in Kites and Krrish 3 – and that he has been ‘harassed’ by the actress over the last four years.
“We want to believe the other party because the rhetoric is – why would the girl lie,” the statement says. Hrithik also says an examination of his passport will prove that he wasn’t in Paris when Kangana claimed he was (proposing to her) and that he is speaking up in what he calls a ‘dirty perverse mess’ because ‘families suffer, children suffer.’ This is Hrithik’s first public response about Kangana.

Kangana Ranaut has alleged that she and Hrithik Roshan dated ever since Kites in 2009 – he disputes this and sent her a legal notice last year after she appeared to refer to him as a ‘silly ex’ in an interview. A public exchange of recriminations and accusations followed, with Hrithik also going to the police over e-mails that he claimed were sent to Kangana by an imposter pretending to be him.
Kangana Ranaut allegedly sent over 3,000 emails to Hrithik Roshan, some of which were reproduced by news outlets this week, extracted from a police complaint filed by the Roshans’ lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani. Hrithik Roshan has accused Kangana Ranaut of stalking him.
The only responses from Team Kangana have come from her lawyer, who put out a statement, and her sister Rangoli Chandel who posted a series of tweets about Kangana having ‘moved on’ from Hrithik.
Kangana Ranaut invoked the feud with Hrithik Roshan while promoting her film Simran last month. She spoke to TV channels in New Delhi saying that Hrithik and his father Rakesh Roshan had ‘made fools of themselves’ and that she wanted an apology.
Rakesh Roshan told DNA that the complaint is now available in the public domain, that the “facts of the case will shock you,” and that the Roshans are not “loose talkers.”
