His separation from wife Sussanne Roshan has changed a lot of things for Bollywood superhero Hrithik Roshan.

His wife has moved out with their two sons and the latest is that the actor is shifting out of his parent's residence and moving into a plush, new sea-facing apartment.

Hrithik seems to be in the news again for all the wrong reasons. The actor has released a statement especially addressed to those spreading certain untruths about the actor.

He issued an angry statement (on January 7) to all media including Emirtaes24|7, clarifying rumours about inflated Box Office result of his superhero franchise 'Krrish 3, which released on November 3.

He wrote:

"Some from the industry and certain sections of the media are hell-bent on putting me, my father and 'Krrish3' down. I have maintained my silence until now but these derogatory manipulations need to stop. 
Krrish3 has done a business of about 244cr India and around 55cr overseas."

That’s not all! He further questions if the people spreading such rumours are his friends. "I wonder who these people are who have been so affected by these numbers and my success. Are they the ones I call my friends I wonder?"

"I would like to tell them that they need not ever be insecure about another mans success cause all they need to do is concentrate on their own hardwork which in turn will help them achieve what they want. 
Believe in karma. As my father and I do. "

Hrithik maybe going through an emotional upheaval but the actor isn’t worried a bit about his career. "And one last thing about my father and me as a team- WE'V ONLY JUST BEGUN!"

We wonder if this will silence the critics.

And who are these friends Hrithik is referring to?

'Chennai Express' and 'Dhoom:3' are the two movies that was released before and after 'Krrish3'.

Media reports claimed Hrithik's movie had surpassed the box office collection of 'Chennai Express' which starred friend Shah Rukh Khan. While the Roshans were mighty pleased with the positive response, soon rumours started floating in the industry that the collections of the film were inflated.

It is rumoured that the "inflated numbers" news was intentionally leaked to the media to mar Hrithik's and father Rakesh Roshan's reputation.

Aamir Khan's 'Dhoom:3' has already collected above Rs 250 crore in India but since the two have been partying together it is unlikely that Hrithik is targeting Aamir in his statement.

We hope numbers don't dictate the terms of friendship for these filmi heros.
