If Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan’s war be termed as ugly, it will be underrated. Once again, the war has resumed as Hrithik is being summoned by the Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) of the Mumbai Police on Saturday (Friday 27) in connection with a case related to an alleged exchange of emails with Kangana.
In 2016, Hrithik had filed a complaint alleging that someone had impersonated him and exchanged conversation with Kangana. However, Kangana slammed him and said that the email ID was provided to her by Hrithik and she had communicated via mail till 2014.
In 2016, the Mumbai Police’s cyber cell had asked Hrithik to deposit his laptop and phone for further investigation. Later, the case was transferred to the CIU from Mumbai Police’s cyber cell.
Recently, Kangana reacted to the transfer of the case to CIU in December 2020 and tweeted, “His sob story starts again, so many years since our break up and his divorce but he refuses to move on, refuses to date any woman, just when I gather the courage to find some hope in my personal life he starts the same drama again, @iHrithik. Kab tak royega ek chote se affair keliye (When will you stop crying over a small affair)?”
