Following his divorce with Sussanne Khan, there were reports that linked Hrithik Roshan with Kangana Ranaut. The two have also worked together on few projects including Kites (2010) and Krrish 3 (2013). The two were also supposed to be working together in the ambitious romantic project ‘Aashiqui 3’.
When a Pinkvilla report stated that Hrithik had ousted Kangana ousted from the film, following the breakup, Kangana quoted, “Yes, many lame rumours are doing rounds; even a dumbass can tell where these rumours are coming from. I don’t know why exes do silly things to get your attention. For me that chapter is over and I don’t dig graves.”
It seems that Hrithik was not really happy with his name being dragged with Kangana. He tweeted, “There are more chances of me having had an affair with the Pope than any of (I am sure wonderful) women the media has been naming. Thanks but no thanks.” A copy of the tweet was also posed on his Facebook account.
While some fans laud Hrithik clearing the air, there are many who feel that it was a knee-jerk reaction, which was really not needed. Others feel that Hrithik could have expressed his stand with more clarity and certainly not dragged poor Pope’s name in the middle, which has the propensity to stir another controversy!
