Hrithik Roshan, it’s time to break your silence on Kangana Ranaut and lay bare your version of truth

To every Hrithik Roshan's covert action, there has been an equal, direct and more aggressive reaction from Kangana Ranaut. It's time for Hrithik to speak out regardless of how shocking the truth could be.

First things first. Take a bow, Kangana Ranaut. Your guts are admirable. I have never ever seen or heard a female superstar decimating her male counterpart the way you did yesterday in front of a packed audience. ‘Why does a 43-year-old son need his father to rescue him from controversies’ – this terrific response of yours drew a thunderous applause from the masses and rightfully so.

It needs real guts to say something like this on a public podium amidst people who could also be fans of Hrithik Roshan. Your outspoken opinionated nature is a truly a rare trait in an industry where most other actresses practise diplomacy. Not many had the guts to call Salman Khan’s raped woman comment insensitive. You were the first A-lister actress to do so and others merely followed suit. You have the guts to decline films opposite male superstars because you don’t want to play second fiddle which speaks of your supreme self-confidence.

And as far as Hrithik is concerned, you have always given it back to the actor almost tearing down every single story of his with your uber strong rebuttals.

More from the world of Entertainment:

 

This brings me to a conundrum that I have not been able to crack. It’s called the curious case of Kangana Ranaut’s admirable guts and Hrithik Roshan’s mysterious silence. In this David v/s Goliath fight, David aka Kangana has been winning every verbal battle hands down relegating Hrithik to a pall of silence every single time.

To every Hrithik’s covert action, there has been an equal, direct and more aggressive reaction from Kangana. And the actress has been doing that sans any visible powerful backing. The only support perhaps came from Vidya Balan who told me that she admired Kangana for standing up for herself.

And that is exactly what you need to do now Hrithik. Stand up for yourself. You have been silent since day one save for a few cryptic messages on Twitter and a couple of statements issued through your counsels. There has never been a direct response from your end on the Kangana saga.

At the music launch of Mohenjo Daro, I had asked you about having received little to no support from Bollywood in your battle against Kangana and your response was – you don’t need any support when you are walking the path of truth. Perhaps you are right. But then truth can’t be proved by staying silent. As Martin Luther King, Jr once said, “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” I feel your ‘dignified’ silence has now run its golden course and any more silence would only validate the saying- Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

It’s time to speak out regardless of how shocking the truth could be. And today should be an apt day to indulge in some Swachh Self Abhiyan and settle the matter once and for all so that life moves on in a controversy- free manner.

            She's gonna implode. Not sure what acting chops Indians find in her. She isn't considered talented here in America. 'Queen' was a fail here. Plus no one made fun of the accents of Aishwarya Rai, Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone as she implied. And for those folks of Indian descent who've been here for 3 generations, they are Americans and sound American. So, there's no question of anyone making fun of anyone else. She seems to think she knows what Americans are about, to state that Americans make fun of Indian accents. Those are grounds for defamation and slander. For this writer to quote MLK in the wrong context would be criminal if it weren't so funny because of the cluelessness. Good thing we've got the cream of the crop, that used to be Indian but are now American, already leading up American financial and tech companies and it would seem, we're doing alright bringing over the better quality actors and actresses into our mainstream too. She just doesn't have it.

              Love you Hrithik. You dont pay attention to that mentally disturbed woman of loose morals. She is filthand whoever will respond to her nonsense will get defiled. Keep away from her.

                She was interacting with a Fake ID - this was proven by Mumbai cops that Hrithik had absolutely nothing to do with it. Yet, from last year, she has been either insuinating a relation wid him or making constant digs. I respect the Patience of Hrithik for tolerating such a Evil woman.

                            Kangana should be put to jail as every she say is lie and what she say is not clear. Kangana if you don't have the truth you better surrender

                              Looks like she is not getting any movies after her last 3 films bombed. No wonder, she keeps making stupid remarks every other day just to stay in news. I feel sorry for her Parents. We can understand why they disowned her now.

                                Amused to glance through comments below. I am not a fan of either Kangana or Hritik, but it seems w Hritik Roshan Fan club has decided to comment here. Chill guys and gals . It's Mayanagri, all yhis is part of the show called life.Badmouthing one ir other is a futile excercise.

                                  Lol! Its fun reading comments of outraged Hritik fans.Bollywood is religion and stars are gods! The language being used gives good insight into middle cl psyche.

                                    Sonal u failed as a writer after writing this weirdly insane article. You are either biased or you are mentally ill.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Hrithik is dignified and kept silence though he was being cornered/targeted after even proved innocent. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Kangana is clearly mentally sick.

                                        For more than a year, her PR was planting lies in Film magazines abt some imaginery affair, engagement n other kind of nonsense. Her Silly Ex comment was the tipping point for provoking him to Call out her Lies n Insinuations. From claming that he stalked her, her mails actually exposed that it was she who was stalking her in the pretext of a mental illness.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;To defend one lie, she kept on saying more n more lies and used a Photoshopped pic. After all her lies get exposed, she uses Woman card to play victim with a TRP hungry, Media who not once had the balls to ask her to apologize for her lies and actions.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Instead, they are busy overglorifying a motormouth Stalker n Lier at the cost of an Innocent guy. Disgusted to see all this.

                                          She is just not worth his time. Nobody supported her bcoz nobody suppors Liers. Media supports her, bcoz they love Liers. Case in Point: Modilt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Its a Mutual admiration club of Liers with no Spine to stand up for the Truth.

                                            The Journalism standards of Indian Express is hitting new lows. He was given clean chit n backed his claims wid proof. While, all we get is covert remarks from her with Zero evidence.lt;br/gt;Yet, instead of attacking her, u are haring the Innocent guy along wid her. No conscience?
