Sussanne Khan, who has been maintaining a dignified silence on the Hrithik-Kangana controversy till now, has finally spoken up. While supporting her ex, she claims the ' leaked cozy pic' was morphed
The Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut row is getting murkier by the day.
A day after a picture of Kangana and Hrithik getting 'cosy' went viral, it emerged that there were more pictures from the same party which suggested that the 'intimacy' between the duo was made-up.
Now, Hrithik's ex-wife Sussanne Khan, who had till now maintained a dignified silence, has spoken up in the matter. She has come out in support of the 42-year-old actor, whom she married in 2000 and divorced in 2014.
In happier times.
Without pointing fingers directly at any person, Sussanne tweeted on Wednesday that the 'pictures' were photo-shopped and that "untrue stories" carried too much weight.
She also posted another picture from the same party showing Hrithik and her striking an intimate pose with the caption, 'Another pic for the record. I support Hrithik'.
The party actor Arjun Rampal and his wife Mehr Jessia hosted at their residence on December 4, 2010 saw had over 40 guests and the emergence of this tweet and the other pictures gives a differnt hue to the whole row.
Hrithik's legal team on Tuesday slammed the leak of his "intimate" photo with Kangana, with whom he is locked in a bitter legal battle, saying it did not tell the full story.
"It's shocking that people can go to these lengths to establish a lie. They are lying and using dangerous ways to camouflage that lie. They are making efforts to blur the line between what is true and what is concocted. Please differentiate between bonafide evidence and a made up arguments.
"We will not abandon this struggle just because there is an attempt to muddle up things. We want to know what is their struggle about proving that they have had something to do with our client? What do they want to achieve through that?" said a lawyer for the actor.
According to the sources, the pictures are from a party in which Hrithik's ex-wife Sussanne and many other common friends were also present and all were hugging each other and taking jovial group pictures.
Issues between the two actors surfaced when Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her 'ex', saying in an interview that she fails to understand "why exes do silly things to get your attention".
