The Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut controversy refuses to settle down, with opinions being added to the mix each and every day. One more celebrity has now weighed in on the matter. Roshan's Kaabil co-star Rohit Roy took to Facebook and opined on the issue, taking his friend and co-star's side.

The actor talked about how women are treated in an appalling manner in India, however just because that is largely the case, we should not believe Ranaut's side of the story just because "she is a woman". Without mentioning either of Roshan or Ranaut's names the actor stood in strong support of the former.

Roy's public defense comes hot on the heels of Farhan Akthar's, after the actor-director took to Facebook and weighed in on the Kangana Ranaut-Hrithik Roshan controversy in the form of an open letter defending his friend and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara co-star. Other celebrities who publicly defended Roshan were Karan Johar and Sonam Kapoor. They both agreed with Akhtar's open letter and added a couple of thoughts of their own.

After the comments by Akhtar, Johar and Kapoor; Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel went on a Twitter spree to defend her kin by calling the stars out.

With no one knowing what the actual truth is, this Roshan-Ranaut saga has been ongoing for a couple of years now, gaining traction recently after Ranaut publicly addressed the issue at hand in several interviews and went into detail about the legal battle that her and Roshan are currently embroiled in, along with giving exhaustive details about their alleged love affair. After Ranaut's tryst with the media on the issue, Roshan too retaliated with interviews and open letters of his own.
