Hrithik spoke to TV anchor Arnab Goswami as he tried to address the controversies.
The fight between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut seem to become a national issue.
After his statement on Facebook, Hrithik Roshan decided to share his side of story in an interview with Republic TV’s Arnab Goswami.
Here are some excerpts…
“First of all, I am not a victim,” he began. “I don’t think there is anything in my life that will make me think that way about myself.”
“I know, and I have always known, that whatever I say can and will be used against me,” he continued, “and I have to be honest that I am very, very uncomfortable right now.”
“I am not a confrontational person. I have never had a fight in my life - neither with a man nor a girl. Even in my divorce, there was no fight,” he said.
“I know that there is absolutely no grace in what I am doing right now. There is no grace in sitting here and testifying for my character and making myself sound right and good and true, and by implication, making someone else seem wrong.”
“I was also very afraid. I’m afraid that my words would be misconstrued. If I come across as strong they might term me as aggressive, if I show emotion they might term me as weak, if I show that I am vulnerable, they say ‘he’s looking for sympathy,’” he continued.
“If I’m walking down the street and if a person abuses me, the dignified thing to do is to keep walking, but if that person starts throwing stones into my home, and affects the wellbeing of me and my family, then that silence is no longer strength, that silence becomes weakness,” he said.
“It’s been four years, and I’ve had enough.”
