Kangana Ranaut advises Hrithik Roshan to withdraw legal notice, looks for out-of-court settlement
New Delhi: The legal battle between Bollywood stars Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan is getting murkier with each passing day.
Every now and then, a new story pops up making the case even more dirty and difficult to ascertain who’s right and who’s wrong.
Now, in a fresh twist in the story, Kanagna Ranaut’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee has issued a statement, which suggests that the ‘Rangoon’ actress is willing to call a truce.
In his statement Siddiquee hinted that Kangana does not want unnecessary drama and media trial in her personal matters.
“WITHDRAWAL OF NOTICE IS THE BEST AND ONLY OPTION. DEVIATIONS AND AN ATTEMPTED TRIAL BY MEDIA AS A FACE-SAVING TACTIC, MAY EVEN WORSEN THE CASE AS IT WOULD EVENTUALLY CREATE INTERFERENCE IN THE PROCESS OF DELIVERY OF JUSTICE AND CONSTRAIN MY CLIENT TO RETALIATE UNNECESSARILY”
It’s been a month since the legal battle between the two rumoured former lovers Hrithik and Kangana started. Hrithik had slapped ‘Queen’ actress with defamation notice.
No more tight-lipped: Hrithik names Kangana in FIR, her lawyer says no one has right to summon the ‘Queen’
Since day one, Siddiquee has been responding to Hrithik’s legal notice and asking him to withdraw the case. Seeing no positive reply from ‘Krishh’ star, Kangana’s lawyer now states:
“His reply cum counter Notice received by Mr Hrithik Roshan on the 1st of March 2016 has not been acted upon by him within 7 days, and Mr Hrithik Roshan has still not withdrawn his allegations and claims, despite the same having been sufficiently proved to be either lies or absolutely baseless and untenable.”
He adds, “My client has so far only been on the defensive, considering the fact that Mr Hrithik Roshan is responsible as a father of two young kids, and she has therefore not initiated any action against him despite her emails being hacked and regardless of the fact that he has criminally intimidated my client and has also made imputation against her chastity, besides issuing unwarranted threats to her.”
“Now such selective response to media reports or deviations by Mr Hrithik Roshan are further worsening the matter, as each time I am unnecessarily constrained to defend my client’s interests as well as her name, image and reputation because of some new deviation.”
He further added, “This can never be a solution. The only solution is that Mr Hrithik Roshan withdraws his Notice and my client shall accordingly then withdraw her reply cum counter Notice.”
Seeing the language of the fresh statement it seems Kangana is looking for out-of-court settlement. As of now, Bollywood has refrained from taking sides in this issue and it is apparent that Kangana doesn’t want to take the fight further with her ex-lover in the court.
Let’s wait and watch how the things turn up.
