Prime News, National, Mumbai, October 5:- Hrithik Roshan today broke his silence on his prolonged public spat with Kangana Ranaut, who claims to have had an affair with him, and said he had never met her “one on one” in his entire life.
How could an alleged seven-year passionate affair between two celebrities leave no trail, the “Kaabil” star asked in a lengthy statement released on social media.
In 2016, Hrithik slapped a legal notice on his “Kites” co-star for calling him a “silly-ex” and maintains that there was no relationship between them.
According to Kangana, however, they had an affair. She has also accused the actor of slut-shaming her by allegedly leaking their private emails to the media.
It has been an ugly, public row that has refused to die down.
Today, the fight took another turn with the 43-year-old actor issuing a statement for the first time, but without naming Kangana
“I believe that ignorance, non-reaction and staying on the path of dignity is the best way to discourage any persistent unwanted intrusions. But just like a nagging health issue sometimes ignored can turn malignant, this situation for me has unfortunately turned malignant,” he said.
Calling out the media for jumping to conclusions, Hrithik said he had remained silent while the other party kept talking because he did not see any grace in adding to “this circus”.
“I have been dragged into a dirty perverse mess without a choice in the matter. This is something that is not of my making. 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.
Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui, however, refuted Hrithik’s claims and said the actor was using diversionary tactics.
