Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan’s ugly feud doesn’t seem to end anytime soon. After Hrithik’s allegations of receiving sexually explicit emails from Kangana, her sister Rangoli has turned up in support of her. Calling the 43-year-old actor, ‘uncle’ Rangoli says Hrithik’s complaints are as baseless as ever.

In a series of tweets, Rangoli writes, “This is the best you can do to save your face? Revive same old stalking, sexually harassing baseless complaint? Kangana was in school when your first film came if not in the industry she would have called you her uncle…Young beautiful talented rich girl like Kangana doesn’t need to stalk an uncle like you, u were after her she was never after you. Evryone cn tell who is the stalker here forgt about Kangana she hs movd on n stalker uncle pls focus on ur children and wife Tnx.” While tweeting, Rangoli didn’t miss out on tagging Hrithik in her every tweet.

It was only on Monday that a report by Republic TV published a copy of Hrithik’s complaint filed by his counsel Mahesh Jethmalani in April 2016 on their website. The complaint alleges that it was Kangana who stalked Hrithik and addressed him as her ‘eternal lover’. Also, Hrithik was ‘repulsed but out of decency ignored those mails’ and accused the actress of sending ‘sexually explicit’ emails to him. In the ‘Part 1′ of the complaint, it was mentioned that Kangana was interacting over email with an imposter who posed to be Hrithik Roshan and the Kaabil actor had no clue about it.

In response to this, Kangana’s counsel maintained that the imposter case was closed and if Hrithik wishes to clean his image he should answer the questions put out by Kangana against him on the public platform.

Last month in September, Kangana in her bare-all interviews to senior journalists Rajat Sharma, Rajeev Masand and Barkha Dutt created quite a stir as she accused Hrithik of making her life, a mess. She even accused the senior Roshan, Rakesh Roshan, of first promising to help her and then backing out and turning the tables on her. She shared the most personal and intricate details about the time she dated Hrithik, the emotional upheaval she underwent after her personal life became a spectacle and how she stood against the film industry during the promotions of her film Simran. However, Hrithik and his family preferred to stay silent on the explosive interviews and refused to react on Kangana’s allegations on them.

Taking it all a step ahead, Kangana in an AIB video titled, “The Bollywood Diva Song” took a dig at Hrithik and papa Roshan as she sang, “Papa Ne Tujhko Launch Kiya.”

For those who find it difficult to recall, all of this started in 2013 when Kangana and Hrithik shared the screen space in Krrish 3. During the filming days of the movie both the actors were said to have come close and rumours of their affair went viral. After Hrithik officially separated from his wife Sussanne in December 2013, the rumours gained momentum.

But the twist in the tale came in 2016 when reports of Hrithik being responsible for Kangana’s ouster from Aashiqui 3 did the rounds. Though Hrithik then maintained his stoic silence on it, Kangana being her own self, reacted to it saying, “I don’t know why exes do silly things to get your attention. For me, that chapter is over and I don’t dig graves.”

It was her this comment which irked Hrithik and he first through a tweet and later through a legal notice asked Kangana to apologise for maligning his reputation in public. What he might not have expected as an aftermath was Kangana’s 21-page legal notice saying she never mentioned his name and charged him with criminal intimidation and threat.

Hrithik maintained that Kangana’s claim is based on email exchanges between her and someone impersonating him by using a fake email id. According to Hrithik’s notice, the duo met on May 24, 2014, at Karan Johar’s birthday bash when Kangana approached the actor and thanked him for sending her an email appreciating her work in Queen. Clarifying it to Kangana, Hrithik said that the email ID from which she received the mail was not his and he gave her his real email ID. Hrithik also claimed that after knowing the original email ID, Kangana sent a barrage of emails to him.

Following this were a series of legal notices which both the actors slapped on each other.
