Mumbai: Actor Hrithik Roshan and his lawyers seem to be in no mood to step back a bit from the ongoing legal battle with Kangana Ranaut. They said they will prove their client Hrithik has had no relationship with the actress.
Hrithik's lawyers told IANS: "The facts have been now presented to the authorities. Let's not get confused in this war of words. We will prove that our client Hrithik Roshan has had no relationship with Kangana Ranaut. We have presented solid evidences of this nature to the investigating authorities. They should present any credible evidence if they have to those who are authorized to investigate this matter."
The lawyers added: "We are not interested in playing the game of notices and counter-notices. We are only pursuing this to bring out the correct facts and that will happen through bonafide investigation. Facts will very soon come out. We would like to remind that this case is not about man vs woman, powerful vs weak, it's about lie vs truth."
The counter statement was sent by Hrithik's team after Kangana's lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee issued a statement on Thursday evening.
Siddiquee stated: "My client Ms. Kangana Ranaut has alleged that Mr. Hrithik Roshan was continuously hacking her email accounts due to which she was forced to shut and abandon her two primary email accounts more than eight months ago. These allegations were also contained in my counter notice cum reply dated March 1, 2016, to which Hrithik has still not replied despite lapse of more than fifty (50 days)."
"It is a matter of record that Hrithik filed his FIR only on March 5, 2016, i.e. after my client claimed that her emails were hacked. It is therefore apparent that the emails that Hrithik is referring to or relying upon, in all probabilities are not genuine at all and could largely be fabricated."
"In any event my client is bold enough to admit and accept the emails which were genuinely communicated to Hrithik on his correct email id, only once she verifies the contents of the same."
"Until such verification and acceptance on the part of my client, any emails circulated by Hrithik to the media in an effort to tarnish my client's name and image or to put pressure on her and/or to outrage her modesty should be treated as fabricated," he added.
Issues began when Kangana recently hinted at Hrithik being her 'ex' when she said in an interview that she fails to understand "why exes do silly things to get your attention".
Siddiquee's statement read: "Hrithik needs to understand that by circulating such unreliable emails or by asking my client to relinquish all her legal rights and liberties and quietly record her statement with the police without asking any questions, proves the extent of his desperation and nothing else."
"If he really wants to clear his public image, then he should answer all questions publicly and not keep quiet on the main subject matter of his notice. Such acts of deviation or putting pressure will not work with my client. His acts of commissions and omissions have proved it all, so far. Hope better sense prevails before it is too late."
