After a brief lull in the Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut saga, the actors are back in the news after Rakesh Roshan, Hrithik's father spoke about it in an interview to Hindustan Times.
When asked about the controversy he replied, "Hrithik is different. Even when someone [Kangana] was spreading lies about him, he chose to stay calm and dignified. If he does choose to come out with the truth, it will shock everyone."
Speaking about Hrithik's reason for his silence the filmmaker said that after he is free from his film's shoots he may speak about it. But it is his choice.
Recently Kangana had also spoken about the controversy at an event and said, “The incident I faced recently is very different from what I faced in the past. This time there were no legal proceedings against me. There was lot of media drama, threats, lot of slut shaming but there was no case filed against me. There was no question of fighting it legally.”
The last we heard from Hrithik about this was during Mohenjo Daro promos. When asked if he was unhappy with the lack of support from Bollywood during his troubled times he said, “When truth is on your side you don’t need support. Be patient. Patience is the mother of all virtues.”
The row began when Kangana mentioned 'silly exes' in an interview. Hrithik (although he wasn't named in the interview) shot off a legal notice to Kangana asking her to retract the statement. This lead to some mud-slinging, where the actress with her lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee took too countering all of Hrithik's claims.
