Hrithik tells buddies to stop taking sides

Saturday, February 03, 2018

Hrithik Roshan in a Facebook post made it clear that as much as he appreciated people for supporting him in the Hrithik Roshan—Kangana Ranaut controversy, he wanted his Bollywood friends (read Farhan Akhtar, Yami Gautam, Twinkle Khanna etc) to stop taking sides. He also urged the media not to make a mockery of the issue.

I am writing this in response to the several interview requests that I am getting from various media houses. I have given two. Because of 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.
