Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut’s battle is regarded as one of Bollywood’s most unpleasing disputes. Hrithik and Kangana punched each other with legal statements in 2016. Hrithik lodged a legal notice against Kangana Ranaut for naming him her ‘silly ex’ during a public talk in 2016. Then it was disclosed that Kangana had sent infinite emails to Hrithik during their affair back in 2014. In his statement, Hrithik had noted that he met Kangana on May 24, 2014, at Karan Johar’s birthday party, when Kangana went to Hrithik and thanked him for valuing her work in Queen, through an email.
“On coming to understand about Hrithik’s actual email ID, you (Kangana) mailed a storm of emails to him. Our client attempted to flout all the emails around 1439 to him even though it amounted to mental assault and tension. Except sending emails to our client you have also been telling people in the film industry about your affair with him and then called our client a ‘silly ex’,” the notice said.
Kangana said that Hrithik himself had furnished the email-id on which they were communicating till May 2014.”My client (Kangana) states that it was Hrithik who wanted to communicate from a newly created ID because of his impending divorce. To safeguard his name, image, and reputation your client (Hrithik) time and again malafidely and in mischief hacked my client’s email ID and deleted all the emails sent by him (sic),” said Kangana’s statement. Hrithik and Kangana worked jointly in Kites (2010), and later in Krrish 3 (2013). The gossips of their affair began doing the bands after Krrish 3, and they were said to have reached during the shooting of the movie.
