The Hrithik Roshan-Kangna Ranaut controversy seems to be getting uglier by the day.
According to Spotboye.com, Hrithik has sent a legal notice to Kangana for tarnishing his image and fearing defamation.
According to the notice, Hrithik wants the actress to hold a press conference and render an apology to him, making it clear that she had not hinted at Hrithik Roshan as her 'silly ex'. If Kangana fails to comply, he would make all her correspondence to him public.
Kangana being Kangana, was not going to take this lying down. The 'Tanu Weds Manu' actress retaliated with a 21-page legal notice, charging him with intimidation and threat.
According to her, she did not take Hrithik's name in any of the interview, so there is no question of defamation.
Their private squabble is now a public spectacle.
For all those who joined the party late, here what has been happening between the two...
There were rumours about Hrithik getting Kangana ousted from 'Aashiqui 3'. So when the 'Queen' actress was asked about it, Kangana reportedly called Hrithik (without specifically taking name) a 'silly ex' trying different tricks to get attention and blamed him for spreading rumours.
This didn't go down well with the superhero, who wrote a snarky remark on Twitter saying, "There are more chances of me having an affair with d Pope dan any of d (Im sure wonderful) women d media hs ben naming. Thanks but no thanks.(sic)"
While the actor's tweet did not directly point a finger at Kangana, the latter recently confirmed that it was directed at her.
In an interview with Indian TV channel NDTV, when asked if she was hurt by Hrithik's tweet, spat came a big 'NO.'
The actress said that she wasn't hurt by the tweet and that she respected the "other person's opinion", she later added the "other person" should stick to his stand and not slyly pursue her.
While we thought that things have died down, news of the actors sending legal notice to each other has hit the newsstands.
