New Delhi, Oct 13: The ugly public fall out of Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranut has been ongoing for a while now. A spree of TV interviews and posts, including Hrithik's friends coming forward to support him, has been in the headlines lately. Where, earlier, Hrithik remained quiet about the entire situation, Aditya Pancholi and wife Zarina Wahab reacted in anger claiming to file a complaint against the 'Queen' actress.
Not only this, with myriads of allegations, Aditya claimed Kangana to be 'mad'. It was wife Zarina who confirmed some days ago that they have sent a legal notice to Kangana.
Receiving unsatisfactory responses from Kangana and sister, Rangoli to legal notices, the couple has now decided to file a defamation case on her.
In a media confrontation, Aditya said “I am not angry, but I am definitely hurt by Kangana's act. The legal team sent Kangana and her sister Rangoli notices, but their response wasn't up to the mark. We asked them to apologize unconditionally on the same national platforms where Kangana made those derogatory remarks against me. Eventually, her sister and she dragged even my son, daughter and wife into all this. That's the reason Zarina and I decided to file a defamation case against her, which is both civil and criminal."
Where Hrithik-Kangana row has been all over the media recently, Aditya makes his point vivid and states “My case against Kangana has nothing to do with what is happening between Hrithik and her. Hrithik can deal with his own issues, but I'm clear that I will not keep quiet about whatever is bothering me."
He added "Cases are fought on merit and evidence. Remarks and statements will not come handy in the court of law, proof will. The onus to prove her merit lies with her. Once the case is up for hearing, we'll know."
Aditya feels that rather than publicly making it any dirtier, its better to fight with a legal way, “I'm not doing anything undignified. Kangana has no right to talk about my family and me in such a manner. Why should I shut up? If I don't fight for my family, who will? If someone makes remarks about my family, should I lock myself up in a room and sit tight? Someone has to put an end to her lies, and the only way to do it is through the law. I don't want to stoop to her level.“
