The Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan controversy has to be one of the biggest Bollywood scandals of recent times. And while it seemed like the entire thing had blown over, that’s clearly not the case. Rakesh Roshan recently went on record to say that his son “chose to remain dignified when someone was spreading lies about him” and that Hrithik would shock everyone if he came out with the truth. So when Kangana appeared at an event recently (to launch Chetan Bhagat‘s new book), she was asked about this comment. And while her manager and sister Rangoli tried to get the question avoided, a visibly-annoyed Kangana chose to respond.
Why can’t men stand up for themselves? [Hrithik] is a 43-year-old man. Why does his father have to come to his rescue always? They will keep hiding behind their influential, big-name fathers. He’s an adult, he can pretty much handle his own controversies. It’s just a simple controversy, why do daddies always have to save their sons? I don’t understand this.
In Mr Roshan’s defense, his statement was a response to a question during an interview, not something he came out publicly to say himself.
Meanwhile, Hrithik has often hinted that he’s sitting on some major revelations, and – should he choose to make them public – they would shock everyone. Thus far, however, he has not revealed anything publicly. Is this the time he speaks up?
