It seems like, the fight between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut is not going to end soon. Kangana’s explosive interview on Aap Ki Adalat left eyes popping, sending the entire film industry into a frenzy.
The Kaabil actor, who up until a week ago was mum on the issue, gave interviews to Republic, CNN News 18, and a few other news portals to tell his side of the story “under some very compelling circumstances”.
Their war of words has been on for quite some time now and people have slowly started opening up and taking sides on social media. Now Hrithik’s friends and fans are coming out in support by posting his thoughts on public platforms. Hrithik addressed this issue in his latest post and asked people not to make it aware between two sides and let the legal agencies complete their course of action.
The actor took to Twitter and post a letter and wrote:
I am writing this in response to the several interview requests that I am getting from various media houses. I have given two. Due to the media dynamics of our times there is a justified pressure on me to give more.
Print. Digital. Various other languages. Platforms that will give me much much wider reach.
I would apologise to those who have made these well meaning requests and would humbly say that I don’t wish to speak on this issue. I have had to give out my side of truth under some very compelling circumstances.
In the interest of civility and human dignity we should not make a spectacle of this issue. Media is an integral part of our civil society and they would know that continued discourse on this issue is gaining toxic dimensions.
I am no one to suggest what media should cover or not but if this under investigation case is factually covered through the developments of police investigation and courts, that would be a breather for a lot of us.
I am extremely thankful to people who have supported me in this painfully unfortunate episode. But my request to all friends and observers would be to stop taking sides in this issue. This is an unfortunate issue and not a contest of sorts. Before this is dangerously hijacked into a man vs woman, insider vs outsider, privileged vs non privileged issue we must stop. Please don’t support me. Don’t take sides.
I am by no means seeking to close this issue. The only thing I am suggesting is to let the investigations be the only spokesperson in this issue henceforth.

Kangana’s public feud with Hrithik began last year, when the she claimed that she started dating Hrithik in 2009 – this was after Kangana received a legal notice from Hrithik asking for an apology for appearing to refer to him as her ‘silly ex’ in an interview.
