Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut — two names that have never stepped back from taking a jibe at each other in public. While promoting his upcoming film 'Super 30', Roshan in an interview with a daily newspaper reacted to the constant digs taken at him. He broke his silence on the row stating that he has learnt to not be affected by any of it. The actor also lashed out at ’supposedly enlightened’ people because of which this ‘circus’ has been going on for six years.
To this, Hrithik Roshan said: "I have come to realise that bullies have to be treated with a certain amount of patience, and not be engaged with. It is upon the civil society and those who claim to be just and fair to see and observe if there is harassment."
He further said: "Also, being who I am, if I choose to confront as per laws, I become the aggressor. If I withdraw from a film-clash that I know has been pre-designed, then I become a weakling penning a sob story. I have learned to not get affected by either"
Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel took to her Twitter handle and reacted angrily on Roshan's statements. Read the tweet below -
Hrithik also commented on those who support Kangana Ranaut's behaviour: "To be honest, my only grouse is with those supposedly enlightened’ people who praise and often cheer this behaviour in the name of new’ and refreshing audacity’, without any desire to be rational or truthful. They are the enablers who have allowed this circus to continue for six years," he said.
"There is no legal case that I directly have with the lady (Kangana), and the reason I cannot have one is because apparently a guy cannot be stalked in India," Hrithik concluded when asked about the legal case with Ranaut.
Meanwhile, "Super 30" starring Hrithik Roshan, Mrunal Thakur, Pankaj Tripathi and Johnny Lever among others. It is slated to hit the screens on July 12.
