"I Have Come to Realise That Bullies Have to Be Treated With a Certain Amount of Patience": Hrithik Roshan on Kangana Ranaut

The actor gives his views on the six year 'circus' that has been built-up surrounding their on-going feud.

It's pretty evident that there is no love lost between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut. The drama between the two of them goes wayyy back to 2013. Kangana and Hrithik were working together on Krrish 3 when rumours of an alleged affair between the two of them started doing the rounds. Hrithik had also recently separated from his wife Sussanne, and what followed was an ugly battle of allegations and accusations between Hrithik and Kangana. Tweets were made, cases were filed and interviews were given. Nobody really knew what was going on, but the drama seemed to be never ending. 


Now, six years after the whole mess originally started, Hrithik has addressed what happened, yet again. His latest film Super 30 has been rescheduled to release before Kangana's movie Mental Hai Kya, and the actor has cited avoiding a media circus as his reason for doing the same. This is what he had to say in an interview to Hindustan Times:

"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. 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. Although, 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. 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."

While we applaud Hrithik for taking the higher road, we do hope that this is the end of the spat between these two. With both of them being such amazing actors, we look forward to watching the drama they create on-screen in both their upcoming movies.
