What first started as a rumour back in January has since morphed into a mighty legal battle between two of Bollywood’s most high-profile stars.

Indian media had earlier reported of the possibility that ‘Queen’ Kangana Ranaut and her ‘Krrish’ co-star Hrithik Roshan may have been romantically involved.

Kangana’s recent comment on how she was no longer being considered for ‘Aashiqui 3’ was that “exes do silly things to get your attention,” a reported stab at the film’s lead actor — Hrithik.

Though his name was not explicitly used the ‘Bang Bang’ star wasted no time and took to Twitter to clarify his position saying,

But it appears Hrithik wasn’t quite content with just the tweet and has since had his legal eagles send a legal notice Kangana’s way accusing her of defamation.

According to ScoopWhoop, “the notice included a recommendation that Kangana issue a public apology to him, and announce that she did not in fact hint at him in her remarks from January, and threatened to make all their correspondence public if this wasn’t complied with.”

But Kangana isn’t one to take things lying down… The ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ actress instructed her lawyer to issue Hrithik a legal notice in return, accusing him of intimidation. Her legal team argues that since she has not named Hrithik anywhere by name, none of her actions can be termed as defamation.
