Mumbai, July 12 (IANS) Actor Hrithik Roshan, who is embroiled in a legal battle with actress Kangana Ranaut, says he is not looking for support from within the industry as “when truth is on your side you don’t need support”.
Hrithik says he will speak up about the issue but only when the time is right, adding that “patience is the mother of all virtues”.
Asked why he didn’t get any support from the film industry unlike Kangana in their tussle, he said here on Tuesday: “When truth is on your side you don’t need support.”
The two, who were apparently dating in the past, slapped a legal notice against each other for tarnishing their images in the public.
Issues began when Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her “ex” when she said in an interview that she fails to understand “why exes do silly things to get your attention”. The topic in discussion was Hrithik’s hand in getting Kangana replaced in the project by Sonam Kapoor in “Aashiqui 3”.
Hrithik opened up about the issue at the promotional event of his upcoming film “Mohenjo Daro”.
He was further questioned on the impact of the controversy on his stardom, and the actor gave an elusive response.
He said: “Let me answer your question in another way…I am here to answer your questions and I will answer them, but I definitely feel it will be unethical and unprofessional of me to use this platform for my own personal reasons. There is a lot I want to say and I will answer all your questions. It’s not elegant of me to speak on that right now.
“Patience is the mother of all virtues.”
