In 2016, Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan grabbed the headlines. And no it was not only because of his cringe-worthy performance in Mohenjo Daro. As for Kangana, she didn’t even have any movie release that year, still the two of them were all over the headlines, all thanks to an ugly controversy that surrounded her and Hrithik. It all started when stories about Hrithik and Kangana’s rumoured affair, which is said by many to have caused Hrithik and Sussanne Khan’s divorce started doing the rounds. Cut to an interview with Pinkvilla, where Kangana said, “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.” when asked about her not acting in Aashiqui 3, as word had it that Hrithik, who was said to play the male lead in the film had apparently demanded the makers to not cast Kangana in the film.
That very day, Hrithik hit back when he tweeted, “Ther r more chances of me having had an affair with d Pope dan any of d (Im sure wonderful)women d media hs ben naming.Thanks but no thanks. (sic)” The two actors had slammed legal notices on each other and what followed is something that the whole wide world knows.

Of course , the whole fracas died down eventually, and both Hrithik and Kangana are so over that whole spat, but Ranbir Kapoor still can’t get over the controversy, it seems. We know you are wondering how Ranbir came into the picture all of a sudden? Well, during the promotional run of his recently released film, Jagga Jasoos, Ranbir along with his co-star and ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif were at the Radio Mirchi office, where they played a round of ‘Guess Who’. The actors were given placards which had the pictures of their colleagues from the industry. So as per the rules by the host, one of them had to hold the placard over their head and guess the actor while the other person enacts. It was a Bollywood version of Ellen Degeneres’s famous game, Heads Up. It began and it was fun initially (yes, I had a TWSS moment there), but not moving away from the topic, when it was Katrina’s turn to guess, she first got the placard of Sonam, which she guessed it right. Then came Hrithik’s placard, and Ranbir did the famous Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai step, and Katrina got that right again. And here comes the moment, which is basically the crux of this article. Next placard that Katrina held had Kangana’s picture on it, and Ranbir said, “Can I do this (Hrithik step) again?,” and obviously, Katrina got that not so subtle clue, and everyone was in splits.
Clearly, no one might be talking about Hrithik and Kangana’s controversy anymore, but these digs make it evident that Bollywood will not be over it ever.
