Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut‘s controversy gets stickier by the day with a new side of the story unraveled daily. Ahead of the release of her film Simran (September 15), the actress made serious allegations against Hrithik and his father, Rakesh Roshan in an interview with Rajat Sharma on Aap Ki Adalat, which made headlines. In addition to this, more emails allegedly written by Kangana to Hrithik got leaked accusing Deepika of her ‘diplomatic’ behaviour. And now, after what seemed like forever, the actor has finally come out of hibernation to speak on the subject. In an exclusive interview with Arnab Goswai that is airing today, the actor has finally broken his silence on the issue.

When asked why he chose to keep silent for so long, the actor said, “I was very very afraid. I was afraid that my words would be misconstrued. If I come across as strong, then it might turn me into aggressive, If I show some emotions they may turn me as weak. If I may sound vulnerable, they’ll say that oh that means he is looking for sympathy. The list goes on. It has been very confusing. It’s been a dilemma in my head.” He further clarified that he isn’t a victim and that he doesn’t think that anything that happens in his life will make him feel like that about himself.

Furthermore he said that he was aware that anything he said (on the issue) would be used against him. “I have to be honest that I’m very very uncomfortable right now. I’m not a person who likes to confront. I’m not a confrontational person. I have never had a fight in my life neither with a man nor with a girl. Even in my divorce there was no fight. I ask myself a simple question every single time—what’s the shortest route to my peace. I get my answer and I follow. I also know that there is absolutely no grace in what I’m doing right now. There is no grace in sitting here and testifying for my character and making myself sound right and good and true. And by implication making someone else seem wrong. I don’t think that’s graceful,” he admitted. Also Read - Hrithik Roshan Shares Workout Video of Dad Rakesh, Says 'Virus Should be Scared of Him'
However, he finally said that he had had enough for the last four years which forced him to take action on it. “But if I am walking down the street and a person abuses me, the dignified and stronger thing to do is to keep walking. It doesn’t affect my life. However, if that person starts hurdling stones at my home and affects the well being of me and my family , then that silence is no longer a strength. That silence then becomes weakness. It’s been 4 years and I think I’ve had enough.”
He further stated that the issue began to affect his sense of well being, which forced him to come out in the open and talk about it. He said, ” I realised I was pretending. That’s not strength. It’s fake. I had to do something about it. I have had many moments when I felt that’s it, I need to tell my truth. But people stopped me. I don’t want to blame it on people but I was advised to stop because this is probably the only situation that has had the ability to shift my centre. I like to believe I’m stable. But in that state of mind to come out and talk was not advisable. Not that I’m comfortable right now but one has to grow and understand that somethings just need to be done” Check out the excerpts from the interview here and here.
