One is discreet, other verbose–therein the ugly spat
While the Indian politics seems to be churning out reports that are besmirching reputations of senior leaders, and making most of us despondent, thank heavens Bollywood keeping us entertained with some good films and giving voyeuristic pleasure through exchange of dirty insults between Hrithik Roshan, a tall and handsome star and the Queen Kangana Ranaut.
It reminds us of Raj Kapoor-Nargis, Dev Anand-Suraiya and many other affairs, which we do not wish to talk about, but all the break-ups did not end up in ugly spats. Those were more sober days and no one involved wished to harm the partner with whom they had fallen out.
But that gentlemanly era is gone. Hritikh and Kangana possibly had an affair or call it relationship—the word used by Bollywood stars when admitting that he or she were having an affair.
Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan set gossip mills buzzing with rumours of their alleged love affair that began around the time the two worked together in Krrish 3. And then we came across rumours of their split. Both, however, maintained their silence over the issue all along until now. Gossip is that the actress was originally considered to star as the lead opposite Hrithik in Aashiqui 3, but since the latter allegedly refused to work with her, the actress was dropped off the project. Kangana, however, has set the record straight. In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, when asked if Hrithik was the reason she was ousted from the project, she said that exes do a lot many silly things to grab attention, but she’s over it now and that chapter is closed forever.
Why Hirthik is at pains to prove that he had no affair with Kangana? Both are single, adults, and independent. Both are good looking, while enacting intimate scenes, a physical attraction developing between the two is nothing exceptional.
In a recent tweet, Hrithik Roshan mentioned that the chances of him dating a pope are much higher than the women, the media is linking him up with. God, is he impotent? Or he is a Tony Lumpkin, so no one knows about his affairs, if any.
The tweet did not point at Kangana but the Hrithik tweet came immediately after Kangana called him an “ex” in an interview with PinkVilla. Coincidently Kangana is the only woman in the past few years to whom Hrithik was alleged to be dating. A film source put it subtly, “their relationship might not have been “alleged” after all.”
Even the breakup between Salman and Aishwarya Rai did not lead to lawyers of each of them exchanging insults. Yes, one heard that Salman slapped her but no personal insults and invectives were exchanged.
Kangana, faced with several allegations in the recent past, has given a ‘tell-all’ interview to India Today’s Rahul Kanwal, in which she has supposedly thrown light on a lot of rumours. Kangana spoke about her legal battle with alleged her ex-boyfriend, actor Hrithik Roshan who refuses to accept that there was something going on between them. Hrithik has also filed a complaint with the cyber crime cell that Kangana’s emails of love were sent to an imposter’s email ID and not his real one. The case is being investigated and Kangana recently recorded her statement.
But Kangana has reportedly been called a whore and psychopath. And we must praise her for the courage with which she took such things.
In an interview she countered the dirty charges like that she practiced black magic.
The crux of their spat is the Hrithik’s obsession to show himself up as a saint, who did not have an affair which Kangana did not like.
This made Hrithik worry that she might just spill the beans if she has to. And she has finally revealed that she was in a relationship with Hrithik Roshan. When Hrithik and Sussanne Khan’s 14-year marriage ended
last year, the grapevine was abuzz with rumours that Kangana was among the reasons Hrithik’s marriage hit the rocks.
During the trying times, it’s emerged that Kangana is quite spiritual and has in-depth knowledge of the cosmic and the Hindu religion.
Whatever it might be, it is said that common friends were trying to quell the storm in the Hrithik Roshan- Kangana Ranaut controversy, in the best interests of both the actors. But they failed. The two differ on how to reach the conclusion which does not show one has been proved right and the other wrong. “And neither seems to be in a mood to budge. So, a peace treaty between the two will have to wait.” So we can expect Choppergate and HriKangana-gate competing for headlines.
