Hrithik Proposed to Kangana a Month Before He Bailed; Here’s the Insane Timeline of a Messed-Up Affair
The story of Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut's relationship is getting more interesting by the day. A close friend of Kangana recently revealed “almost everything” to Mumbai Mirror. Here are the juiciest bits.
How it started
"It started out as a friendship between two people who were both going through a rough patch, during the shooting of Kites in 2009. His marriage was in trouble and his relationship with his Kites co-star, Mexican model-actress Barbara Mori, wasn't working out. Kangana was going through troubles of her own and they found solace in each other's company and became good friends," the source said.
Then he wanted her to do Krrish 3
"Even though Kangana's career was not exactly shining at the time, she said no to Hrithik. She felt rather uncomfortable with the attention he was showing," the friend said. But Hrithik wouldn't take no for an answer. After being pursued for six months, Kangana said yes. "That's when they got into a relationship after he confided in her that he and his wife Sussanne slept in separate bedrooms. However, Kangana could never talk about the relationship openly, as Hrithik had told her categorically that he would never divorce Sussanne," the friend continued.
She took off to Milan to take some time off
Kangana took off to Milan once shooting for Krrish 3 ended, alone. In December 2013, she got a call from Hrithik. He told her that he was divorcing Sussanne. "She was on top of the world as he also told her he wanted to marry her after the divorce," Kangana's friend said. But of course she was worried that she was just a rebound.
Then, he proposed to her in Paris
This was the proposal: "You may think this is coming out of a rebound. But I have no doubts about our future happiness because you are the only person who has never judged me. And I have felt a strong connection with you from day one." Kangana said yes. This was in January 2014.
Then, he bolted
"In the first week of February, soon after he resumed shooting for Bang Bang, Hrithik stopped communicating with her. Kangana took off for a vacation in New York where she heard rumours about his growing closeness to his co-star Katrina Kaif. On February 14, she confronted him about the rumours when Hrithik called her and asked him to be honest with her. He only wanted to know if anyone was aware of the engagement. When Kangana told him that she had informed her family about it, he said that she had misunderstood his intentions," the friend said.
She understood that this was going nowhere and tried to move on.
When Kangana won everything with Queen, he wanted her back
"But Hrithik wasn't done yet. Soon after Kangana won the National Award for Queen in March 2014, he called, begging her to forgive him and take him back," the friend said. By then, "a young superstar" had started wooing her after meeting her at an awards function. "But Hrithik felt insecure. He confronted her and asked if she wanted to tell him something. She told him not to be insecure about their relationship, but that didn't appease him," the friend said.
"The final blow to their on-again, off-again relationship came in May 2014 at Karan Johar's party. They hadn't spoken for a couple of weeks. When they met at KJo's party, Kangana put her hand on Hrithik's arm. He reacted angrily and asked her how could she have set up a date with another actor for the following Wednesday," the friend said. "Kangana didn't know what had hit her. Had the two been gossiping behind her back? How else could Hrithik have known about the meeting, she kept asking as she took the elevator."
So then he hacked into her email
"Kangana then realised that the young actor had shared his email address with her. She realised that Hrithik could have hacked into her email account. Two days later, her fears came true when she met the young superstar again and he asked her out for coffee. He was clueless about the episode with Hrithik which meant that he was obviously not gossiping behind her back. She then pointed out to Rangoli (Kangana's sister and manager) that some of her mails had disappeared. She always knew that Hrithik was very tech-savvy. Shaken up by this, she called up Rakesh Roshan and told him that if her suspicions were true, Hrithik could land into a lot of trouble for cyber crime. Papa Roshan was really shaken by the conversation and told her that he would speak to Hrithik about it. She deleted the account and decided to wash her hands of the affair," the friend said.
But then they got back together
"But Hrithik finally managed to get his way. He and Kangana were back together. This time she gave him the password to her new account so he could check on her mails officially, but that didn't make things any better between them. Even though industry friends believed them to be in an intense relationship, referring to her as "bhabhi" in private, Hrithik preferred to project a Casanova image after his divorce came through. Kangana was also upset that while Hrithik wished everybody on Twitter before the big release, he never bucked her up for Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Katti Batti. Obviously, Hrithik had gone back to his secretive ways. Hrithik had also started keeping an eye on her. He had a man posted outside her apartment to report on Kangana's movements, knew who she interacted with, which flight she was taking, where she was going, etc."
"She knew that she was in a downward spiral. She was emotionally attached to Hrithik, having been in a two-year relationship. At the same time, she wanted to date a man who was unencumbered; somebody with whom she could go out and not be confined behind closed doors. She wanted to end it. But Hrithik was not ready to let her go. He made things ugly," the friend said.
"There were blind items appearing in gossip column, stories put out that he had her thrown out of the race of contenders for Aashiqui 3 when he was in talks with Bhushan Kumar and Mohit Suri for the musical. There were also murmurs of her sending him erotic texts and nude pictures of hers and his co-stars messages to stay away from him. Sure they exchanged intimate texts like any normal couple does, but she never texted his co-stars. We never imagined that he would stoop so low to tarnish her reputation," the friend said.
Of course, the relationship ended.
"She wants to move on, maybe she can find happiness with someone else. He thought he could intimidate her with his legal notice, get her to make a public apology. But apology for what? What did she do wrong," the friend asked.
