Kangana Ranaut once again reminded us why she’s not someone you’d want to get on the wrong side of. Only days ago, when asked if she’d been unceremoniously dropped from Aashiqui 3, the actress had said: “Yes, many lame rumours are doing the 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.”
Interpreted by the media as a swipe at Hrithik Roshan— with whom Kangana was widely reported to have had a fling, and who was allegedly responsible for her ouster from the film—her statement quickly went viral, leaving the Krrish star with no option but to respond to the story. Shrewdly blaming the film press for the rumours and never mentioning Kangana by name, Hrithik declared on Twitter: ‘Ther r more chances of me having had an affair with d Pope dan any of d (I’m sure wonderful) women d media has been naming. Thanks but no thanks.’[sic]
If Hrithik thought he was going to have the last word in a face-off with Kangana, he clearly doesn’t know the firebrand actress well enough—which seems kinda strange, given that, you know, they were meant to be ‘together’ briefly. Asked by a television reporter earlier this week if she was hurt by Hrithik’s blatant denial, Kangana responded with her trademark brazenness: “No. I am not hurt. I respect the other person’s opinion also. It’s very likely that a person can have a different perspective on the same situation or rather the past. But then, stick to your stand. Don’t slyly pursue people and spy on them, and chase them. So, we sign and seal the deal and then move on.”
Ouch. Seems unlikely that Hrithik will want to carry on this argument much further.
