4. He says:
Hrithik Roshan claims that Kangana Ranaut ‘defamed’ him calling him a ‘silly ex’ and, he demands an ‘unconditional apology’.
An excerpt from his statement reads:
“The crux of the matter is that the mail id firstname.lastname@example.org does NOT belong to me. I had filed a complaint in this regard with Mumbai Cyber Crime cell on 12 December, 2014 when I learnt of this impersonator communicating with said person. I have absolutely NO CONNECTION with this ID. The entire issue stems from a case of identity theft which has carried over to me. My complaint was reactivated on March 5, 2016 and the crime unit has made headway in tracking this person down. Once that is done, the matter can be laid to rest. And finally, I believe that mental health is a grave and crucial issue which merits serious discussion. I would never address it flippantly nor use it as a personal attack. Any allegation to the contrary is a misrepresentation of facts. I was requested to keep silent and I did so for 2 years.”
Catchwords: said person, mental health issue, kept silent for 2 years.
