With the ambitious project ‘Super 30’ at hand, Hrithik Roshan is hoping nothing falls short in the movie’s promotion. But, it doesn’t look like his issues with Bollywood Diva, Kangana Ranaut, are relieving him anytime soon. In a recent interview, when asked about his stance on Kangana’s constant digs at him, he responded that ‘bullies are not to be engaged with’. In response, her sister, Rangoli Chandel, backed her up and directed a rant tweet at him.
In a recent interview with HT, Hrithik Roshan was asked how does he manage to not give in to the provocation to respond? Hrithik replied, saying,
“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.”
He further added, “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.”
“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.”
Hrithik may be managing to avoid the provocation, but this response was enough to elicit a quick rant from the other side of the battleground. Kangana’s sister, Rangoli Chandel, tweeted a rant to his interview, telling him, “Chal phoot yahan se”.

He also spoke of his sister, Sunaina Roshan and the interview where she stated, she stated that her father told her that ‘the guy she loves is a terrorist.’ Hrithik Roshan, when asked about the allegations, replied,
“This is an internal, private and sensitive matter for me and my family. In didi’s current state, it would not be correct of me to speak about her.”
He also added, that, “It is an unfortunate situation that probably many families are going through and are as helpless as we are, owing to stigmas and an incredibly weak medical infrastructure in this country for such cases.”
“Also, Religion has never been discussed or been given importance whatsoever in my entire life. And I would like to believe that it is obvious to the world by now.”
On the Bollywood front, the movie, Super 30 will be released on 12th July, 2019.
