Five questions Kangana Ranaut should answer based on Hrithik Roshan's recent interviews
Raise your hands if you've had an intense conversation with your friends/family about the ongoing Kangana Rananut and Hrithik Roshan spat. Have you taken sides? Who do you think is telling the truth? Is there even one version of the truth? Is there any smoke with fire? So many questions, no coherent answers.
The explosive Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut legal case has reached such a level of interest, it's hard to turn one corner without a conspiracy theory.
However, one thing is a constant. When all else fails, everyone turns to the media, alleging biased coverage, turning a case like this into a gender debate, or covering the news as per convenience and being one-sided.
And so, in order to break the scapegoating process, here are five questions for Kangana Rananut, based on the recent claims Hrithik Roshan has made in his various interviews. This is an attempt to reduce the (raising) levels of confusion any news-consuming person would have about this bemusing case.
Question 1: Has Kangana submitted all her personal communication devices to the police for investigation?
Hrithik has claimed that Kangana did not cooperate with the investigation by refusing to submit her personal communication devices to the authorities initially. But Kangana's lawyer has argued she cooperated fully, but holds the right to reveal her devices selectively after proper questioning of the processes. Hrithik has also claimed that he has made all his communication devices available to the police.
Question 2: How would Hrithik have access to minor details of her daily life?
Hrithik has claimed that the e-mails that were sent to him from Kangana's allegedly hacked account had an account of her daily updates. They would recount minor details regarding her films, her grouses with costars and other miscellaneous things. How would Hrithik gain access to her daily life? She claims she sent only some "love letters" to him which he has turned into a slew of maligning emails. But how could have known about her daily life?
Question 3: Who chased whom for Krrish 3?
Kangana claims Hrithik chased her for Krrish 3 for 6 months but in a recent TV interview, he says he was not involved and it was his father who pursued her only for a week or two in order to resolve their creative differences. Why did Kangana say he chased her for 6 months?
Question 4: Where are the photos? And what about the passport?
How has there been no photographic evidence of their relationship, whatever capacity it may be? Understandably, since Kangana claims it was an extra-marital affair, it's possible that the whole thing was secretive. However, all we have is one photo from a party, which seems to have been used by both parties for their convenience. Kangana claims the photo and how they were posing is proof of their relationship, while Hrithik claims it was a party where his wife was around, and there was a third person in the photo who has been cropped out.
Also, how does one propose to someone in Paris without a passport stamp of them travelling out of the country?
Question 5: Did Kangana actually complain to the state or national commission of Women?
In Rajeev Masand's interview, Kangana Ranaut claimed she went to complain about Hrithik Roshan and his father Rakesh Roshan to the Commission for Women, based on Vishal Bhardwaj's advice (she worked with him on Rangoon). She claimed that their Head in Mumbai was a friend of the Roshan family, and asked her to bury the complaint. However, the chief of Maharashtra State Commission for Women, Vijaya Rahatkar has refuted Kangana's claims, stating neither her nor her sister approached him at all.
Additional question: Hrithik, Kangana — have you guys ever heard of something called a phone?
