It was just a few days ago that Hrithik Roshan went on to his social media profile and broke silence over the Kanagana Ranaut fiasco.
Hrithik Roshan came out in front of the media and his side of the story, which then resulted in a barricade of reactions from other celebrities from the industry including; Farhan Akhtar, Karan Johar Yami Gautam among others (friends f Roshan) who took to social media supporting their friend and sharing their views.
This caused a retaliation when Rangoli, Kanagana’s sister outright slammed the stars in support of her sister.
….Haha even if entire industry stands against her she will still survive because she is the chosen one 😊!!

However, in the wake of recent events, Hrithik Roshan finally posted on his social media asking people to not support him nor take sides.
“I am writing this in response to the several interview requests that I am getting from various media houses. I have given two. Due to the media dynamics of our times there is a justified pressure on me to give more.
Print. Digital. Various other languages. Platforms that will give me much much wider reach.
I would apologise to those who have made these well meaning requests and would humbly say that I don’t wish to speak on this issue. I have had to give out my side of truth under some very compelling circumstances.
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.”
