If Kangana Ranaut is not talking about the drama that happened between her and Hrithik Roshan, reporters indirectly ask her about it. Like in this interview with IndiaToday, Kangana was asked about how she survived the hard last year and the effect it had on her family. In her answers, she does make sense, but only if the affair is true, not a make-believe story from her side. She’s sticking to “it did happen” and Hrithik is still sticking to “it never happened”.
Kangana Ranaut Interview on Hrithik Roshan
Kangana on what made her fight back against Hrithik
When you deal with malice and betrayal from someone who you have been extremely close to, of course, it does affect you. There is a character assassination – that too publicly – by that individual in whom you put all your faith and love. It has been very hard to deal with. But the fighter instinct in me dominates every other instinct. I did not think twice. I see so many woman committing suicide and falling into depression and my only point is why do they fail to attack? I’m not saying strip others off their dignity too. But you have got to say no to the healer archetype. I am extremely bold. I sent a notice back. I did not take it lying down.
Kangana on whether her family supported her decision to fight back
My own family, my mother was like don’t do all these things and say, “Bade log hain tumhe marwa daalenge.” She would cry all the time. Out of concern and love, they wanted me to shut up not because they don’t know want the truth to be out but (because) that’s the best thing. But that’s not the way to live. If you let your guard down, the other person then gets an opportunity to attack you. It is important to protect yourself.
Kangana on why she fought on
I was not fighting any individual battle but fighting against many prejudices. I took it all in my stride. So I am a whore, I’m sexually attractive, have psychological problems, capable of falling in love with men passionately. So what is my future? What should be done with me. They have nothing to say. They can’t kill the fierceness.
