Slut-shaming won't work, says Kangana of her very public spat with Hrithik
The Kangana-Hrithik spat has gotten uglier than the average divorce. In fact, it gets more complicated as each party files lawsuit upon lawsuit on the other.
According to Indian Express, the latest is that Kangana's lawyer has alleged to the Mumbai police commissioner that Hrithik is circulating her "absolutely private and confidential" photographs and emails to “non-concerned third parties”, thereby "wilfully outraging [Kangana's] modesty and imputing unchastity to her”.
The lawyer also said that Hrithik had “criminally threatened” Ranaut with these actions in his notice to her, and asked the police to “prevent cognizance of any such offence if the same has yet not been blatantly committed”.
So Kangana has released a statement, published on Miss Malini, that calls on Hrithik to prove that she has defamed him in order to get the public apology he seeks:
"In a legal matter only on record statements can be addressed not gossip. So here’s my final word: If the other party who sued me for defamation and asked for a public apology can prove defamation, I promise to apologise publicly. I request the other party to respond to the legal matter which they have started and not turn this defamation suit into a media trial and judgment."
She went on to openly call out Hrithik for his alleged blackmailing tactics:
"If they are sincerely seeking an apology then they must help me understand their perspective because blackmailing or threatening won’t work with me. Though my legal team is taking strict actions against blackmailing and threatening me, but as a girl it doesn’t scare me."
She then emphasises that the blackmailing has not 'shamed' her:
"You won’t get a sorry by threatening me or circulating my love poems, letters or images. I am not ashamed of anything, not my past, not my affairs, not my body and most definitely not my desire. So slut-shaming won’t work either."
She concluded thus:
"If they want an apology then they have to come to the point, beating about the bush won’t help, me and my team are eager to help as hurting sentiments isn’t our intention."
