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.

                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.
