Mumbai, October 5, 2017 : Actor Hrithik Roshan on Thursday broke his silence on the dragging row with actress Kangana Ranaut, saying he has never met her privately and asked how two “high-profile celebrities” could have had a seven-year passionate affair without any evidence.

Hrithik, son of veteran actor-filmmaker Rakesh Roshan, said that “just like a nagging health issue sometimes ignored can turn malignant, this situation for me has unfortunately turned malignant.

“The truth is, I have never met the lady in question one-on-one in my entire life. 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,” Hrithik said in a statement.

The row began 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.

The mud-slinging has continued till date, with Kangana and her sister constantly accusing Hrithik.

The “Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai” star questioned: “An alleged seven-year long, passionate affair between two high profile celebrities with no trail left behind.

“No evidence, no paparazzi pictures, no witnesses, not even a memento in possession like a selfie taken at the alleged engagement which is claimed to have happened in Paris in January 2014. Nothing that constitutes an exchange or any sort of proof of a romantic relationship.

“Yet we want to believe the other party because the rhetoric is – why would a girl lie.”

Hrithik also refuted talk of an alleged engagement with Kangana in Paris.

“My passport details show no travel outside the country in January 2014, which is the date that this alleged engagement supposedly took place. In Paris.

“The only so-called proof presented of this alleged ‘relationship’ was a photoshopped picture in the media. This was immediately exposed, the very next day by friends including my ex-wife.”

The actor says the investigation regarding the emails is on.

“There are 3,000 one-sided mails which either I have sent to myself or the woman in question has sent to me. The Cyber Crime department can prove or disprove either story, in just a few days. Towards that purpose, I have surrendered all my devices including laptops/phones which are still lying with the Cyber Cell, but the other party has refused to do so.

“This is not, and I repeat, not a lovers spat. I humbly request people to stop labelling it as one and, for a second, try and see it for what it really is.

“I have been harassed by this for four years and the well meaning and probably necessary social bias toward women has deemed me helpless in defending myself.

“I’m not here to accuse or judge anyone, but it’s time I defend the truth because when truth suffers the collective consciousness of society suffers. Civilization suffers. Closer to home, families suffer. Children suffer.” (IANS)

Kangana Ranaut feels she only raises her voice to point out “what is wrong and to take attention towards what is right”. The actress says she is willing to raise her voice for the good of the country and contribute to the nation in a larger way.

“At the moment, I am committed to films and fashion. But if time permits, I would be keen to contribute to the country in a larger way,” Kangana told in an email interview when asked about her next challenge.

“My journey has begun with Aditya Birla already to educate India to be sensitive towards environment and wear eco-friendly clothes,” added the actress, who associated with Liva to support the launch of the eco-enhanced variant of the fabric called Livaeco.

Coming from a village near Manali, Kangana Ranaut entered tinsel town with no starry connection, and went ahead to make a place for herself in Bollywood. She proved her talent and versatility with films like “Gangster”, “Woh Lamhe”, “Life In A…Metro”, “Tanu Weds Manu” and “Fashion”.

The actress says she doesn’t like it when people start judging.

“Body shaming is one such subject matter, if you talk about fashion. So yes, my need to be vocal is only to voice what is wrong and take attention towards what is right,” said the National Award-winning star.

What has she gained during this journey?

“Experience to perform better, to let go, to be fearless and take each thing in your stride, skim through struggles and perform.”

Asked about the #MeToo movement and how it impacted Bollywood, the actress — known for her straightforwardness — declined to comment.

On her association with Liva, she said: “The brand was born with me, so I feel responsible for its journey. This association has become very personal, specially because the brand is graduating to meeting fashion needs, while being sensitive to the environment.”

She feels her fashion journey has been bold.

“It started with what the screen demanded and today, as you can see, six yards is my style statement in recent times, largely because I wish to start a movement to make Indians educated about sustainable fashion — we can’t waste gallons of water to make one pair of denims or T-shirt. Fast fashion will soon result is fast destruction.”
