Kangana says Aamir Khan was her 'best friend', mentor before 'legal battle' with Hrithiktext_fields
Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut has shared that Bollywood star Aamir Khan used to be her best friend before her much-talked about legal battle started with actor Hrithik Roshan.
Kangana took to Instagram, where she shared a video of an old conversation with Aamir on the sets of the TV show 'Satyamev Jayate'. She recalled how she considered the actor as her 'best friend' in the industry previously and also talked about how the 'Dangal' star used to guide and mentor her with her choices.
She added captions: " "Actually mujhe bhi kabhi kabhi woh din yaad aate hain jab Aamir sir was my best friend... jaane kahan gaye woh din." (Sometimes I recall the time when Aamir Sir was my best friend... I don't know where those days have gone).
"One thing is for sure that he has mentored me, appreciated me, and shaped a lot of my choices, before Hrithik did that legal case on me. Post that they made their loyalties clear - it was one woman against entire industry."
In the clip, Kangana could be seen talking about how she has consciously said no to dance numbers in Bollywood after she witnessed a young girl dancing to an item number. She had appeared in the show along with Deepika Padukone and Parineeti Chopra.
Kangana and Hrithik were engaged in a public tiff, after she talked about her "silly ex" in an interview. This led to mud-slinging, leaked e-mails, pictures and chats. Subsequently, the two sent legal notices to each other.
In 2020, when Hrithik Roshan’s FIR against her was shifted from Cyber Cell to the Crime Intelligence Unit, Kangana had tweeted that Hrithik should ‘move on’.
The actress will be next seen in P Vasu's Chandramukhi 2, the sequel to the blockbuster hit Tamil horror comedy film Chandramukhi which starred Rajinikanth and Jyothika in the lead roles. She also has the period drama film Emergency which also marks her first solo directorial film.
