Will the real Hrithik Roshan please stand up? Actor approaches cyber crime cell to trace fake email ID
Mumbai: Actor Hrithik Roshan has decided to again request the cyber crime division of Mumbai police to trace the person who was allegedly talking to actress Kangana Ranaut on his behalf from an email address.
Hrithik and Kangana have slapped legal notices on each other.
The actor, 42, who was the first to send the legal notice to his Krrish 3 co-star, has demanded that Kangana apologise in a press conference and clear the air about their alleged affair which he firmly refutes.
A defiant Kangana, 28, said she was not a "dim-witted" teenager and refused to apologise. She instead shot off a counter-notice to Hrithik warning him to take back his notice or face a criminal case.
On December 12, 2014, Hrithik had first complained to the cyber crime division about an unknown person using the email-id email@example.com and talking to his fans. The complaint letter was then sent to concerned police officials.
"My client had filed the complaint first on December 12, 2014 regarding an imposter using the email address firstname.lastname@example.org and talking to people. This was followed up with the authorities quite a few times. Again on March 5, 2016, my client had requested to find out the imposter and take action," Hrithik's lawyer Dipesh Mehta told PTI today.
"We would again pursue the matter with the cyber crime division as this is the crux (of legal battle between Hrithik and Kangana) of the whole matter. We are confident that the authorities would nail the person at the earliest, and this would put the matter to rest once and for all," he said.
The complaint letter had stated that, "I have a personal email address which is email@example.com and I do not have any other email address. I only communicate with public from this email address. Recently it was brought to my notice that some unknown person is using an email address firstname.lastname@example.org and is impersonating himself as Hrithik Roshan before the public."
The letter further said, "Many innocent people including my fans and certain people from the film industry have told me that they are communicating with me on email@example.com. When I told them that my email id is firstname.lastname@example.org they are not ready to believe the same."
In his letter, Hrithik revealed that a young girl (apparently implied to Kangana) has sent a lot of personal
stuff on the email address email@example.com.
"A young girl sent a lot of photographs and film clips on the email address firstname.lastname@example.org thinking that she is sending it to me. I believe the said material if used wrongly can ruin my reputation and the girl completely," the letter added.
