After finally breaking his silence in an interview with Republic TV's editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami on one of Bollywood's biggest controversies, Hrithik Roshan has once again took to his Facebook page to issue yet another clarification.
Hrithik, who has dominated headlines for the past week due to his sensational revelations in the exclusive interview with Republic, said that he had to give out the truth "under compelling circumstances."
In a Facebook post on Tuesday, the actor has now urged the media to refrain from "making a spectacle" of his personal life and that he won't be speaking on the issue any more.
Read his Facebook post below:
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.
Last week, Hrithik had submitted his mobile and laptop to the Mumbai police for investigation. After Hrithik's sensational interview to Republic, Kangana is yet to give an official response.
