The Hrithik Roshan, Kangana Ranaut issue has been all over on social media, news websites, shows, etc. The duo, which has a strong fan base in the country have been a matter of discussion and people have started taking sides. Not just the common people, but Bollywood celebrities have also come out in support of either one of the two.
While all this was going on, Hrithik Roshan finally came out to put light on the issue on a news channel recently and opened up about what had happened. After listening to his side of the story, many got confused about who was speaking the truth. It has become a never ending debate on social media, and actors like Farhan Akhtar, Yami Gautam have also written long posts on the same.
Hrithik Roshan has, however, requested his fans not to turn this into a contest. He took to Facebook to share how people have started taking sides and that they should not turn it into a man vs woman, insider vs outsider, privileged vs non privileged issue.
Here is what the actor wrote, “In the interest of civility and human dignity we should not make a spectacle of this issue. Media is an integral part of our civil society and they would know that continued discourse on this issue is gaining toxic dimensions.
I am no one to suggest what media should cover or not but if this under investigation case is factually covered through the developments of police investigation and courts, that would be a breather for a lot of us.
I am extremely thankful to people who have supported me in this painfully unfortunate episode. But my request to all friends and observers would be to stop taking sides in this issue. This is an unfortunate issue and not a contest of sorts. Before this is dangerously hijacked into a man vs woman, insider vs outsider, privileged vs non privileged issue we must stop. Please don’t support me. Don’t take sides.
I am by no means seeking to close this issue. The only thing I am suggesting is to let the investigations be the only spokesperson in this issue henceforth.”
