The last couple of months have seen the 'superstars-in-their-own-right' Hrithik Roshan and Kangna Ranaut indulging in a war of words. While the
mudslinging was not done directly by either of them; Hrithik had taken to Twitter and (indirectly) hinted at Kangna stating "There are more chances of me having had an affair with the Pope than any of the (I'm sure wonderful) women the media has been naming. Thanks but no thanks". On the other hand, Kangna Ranaut, in one of her interviews also took a (indirect) dig at Hrithik Roshan by saying that there were many lame rumours which were doing the rounds and that even a dumb ass could tell where these rumours were coming from. She added that she did not know as to why the exes do silly things to get one's attention and that, for her, 'that chapter' was over. She also added that she doesn't dig graves.
The latest update on the same is that, both of them (Hrithik Roshan and Kangna Ranaut) have now slapped a legal notice to each other. While
Hrithik Roshan has been reportedly seeking an apology from Kangna for referring to him as her 'silly ex', Kangna's reason for the notice was to charge Hrithik Roshan with a 'clumsy attempt to cover up a relationship'. Hrithik Roshan, on his end has reportedly accused Kangna Ranaut of stalking him online by sending up to as many as 50 e-mails a day, some of them even explicit in nature. On the other hand, Kangna reportedly blamed Hrithik of hacking into her email account in order to delete mails that could have complicated his divorce proceedings.
In his legal notice (that Hrithik sent through his lawyer Deepesh Mehta), he has alleged that he had a record of 1,439 mails from Kangna, of which, many were senseless, personal, and absurd. The notice clearly stated that Hrithik Roshan ignored the emails for the longest time and had not responded to even a single mail. On the other hand, Kangna (through her legal notice issued by her lawyer Rizwan Siddique) claimed that her name was getting linked with Hrithik even before he divorced his wife and that he made a desperate attempt to hack into her emails and destroying any sort of untoward evidence.
The story JUST does not end there. While Hrithik's notice also claimed that Kangna was suffering from' Asperger's Syndrome' (a mental disorder that makes an individual to imagine things of their own), Kangna went on to accused Hrithik of having 'mental issues'.
While Kangna's notice also said that she was not some dim-witted teenager who had been smitten (by stardom and Hrithik Roshan), Hrithik's notice stated that Kangna was so very obsessed with him, that, at one point, she had even called Rakesh Roshan (Hrithik's father) and advised him on how to handle his son. His notice, in an attempt to 'throw light on his silence' said that Kangna had misconstrued his silence and dignity as a weakness and started being more and more impudent.
While both the notices also gave 'detailed attendance' of the parties that Hrithik and Kangna had attended, Kangna's notice stated that she did not feel the need to call any press conference nor give any statements on the social networking accounts to clear the air (as was allegedly demanded by Hrithik Roshan). Acting on Hrithik's threat to reveal his communications with her, Kangna's notice said if Hrithik circulates her emails, images and or other materials, such actions shall be taken 'extremely seriously' and that Kangna, would have to file criminal proceedings against him at his risk, costs and consequences.
The last word, however (till now), belonged to Kangna, who, in her notice, has apparently issued an ultimatum telling Hrithik to 'withdraw his notice within seven days of receipt of the reply'.
