Actor Hrithik Roshan has been summoned by the Mumbai Crime Branch in connection with his case over his exchange of emails with Kangana Ranaut. He has been asked to appear before the agency on Saturday at 11 AM to record his statement. The case had made headlines in 2016, and continued to surface occasionally.
The controversy between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut had started when she referred to the former as a ‘silly ex’ in an interview. He had responded by sending her a legal notice, seeking her apology and denying their supposed affair. The Queen star refused to apologise and sent a counter notice to take the notice back or face a criminal case. Hrithik then claimed that someone impersonating him was communicating with Kangana Ranaut on email and lodged a police complaint. He also claimed that she sent him over 1400 emails upon coming to know the real email ID, and alleged ‘harassment and stress’ from it. Kangana had claimed that the email ID in question was provided by him. Hrithik’s laptop and phone had also been taken by the police for investigation. Only that he didn’t actually talk about it and remained silent most of the time. Kangana, on the other hand, has been quite vocal about the case, sharing photographs with Hrithik and accusing him of being an elitist.
The actors, who had worked together in movies like Kites and Krrish 3, even made statements in the media over the case, amid reports of an alleged engagement, surfacing of their pictures together and his ex-wife Sussanne Khan coming out in his support.
