After the statements on Facebook and Twitter, Hrithik Roshan gone on National TV and interacted with Arnab Goswami in an exclusive interview about his on-going spat with Kangana Ranaut. The interview will be Aired on Republic TV on this Saturday night.
When Arnab asked: What made Hrithik come out and talk about the issue?
“I’ve just had enough, I need to say what I want to say. Enough of I don’t know what word to choose, I cannot describe it, but it has… I realize that I have been pretending because I have to live up to this star.. thing of mine that I’ve got to look on for it, I’ve got to be cool and be okay and not give any attention to something that is not important.”
“After a while, I realized that I was pretending. It was affecting me. It was affecting my sense of community, it was affecting my sense of well being, and I said now I am pretending… That’s not being hero, that’s not strength, its fake. I had to do something about this. It’s about time,” Hrithik said.
I was very afraid:
“I was also very very afraid. I have been afraid that my words would be misconstrued. If I come across as strong, they might turn me as aggressive, if I might show some emotion, they might turn me as weak, if I may sound vulnerable, they’ll say ‘Oh, maybe he is looking for sympathy’ and the list goes on.”
He further added:
“It has been very confusing, it has been a dilemma in my head, but you know if I am walking down the street and a person abuses me, the dignified stronger thing to do is to keep walking. He doesn’t affect my life but if that person starts hurtling stones into my home and affects the well-being of me and my family, then that silence is no longer strength, that silence then becomes weakness. It has been four years, I think I have had enough.”
He also said that many times he tried to tell his truth but people stopped him.
“I was afraid and now I am not going to be afraid of that (coming to terms with my own vulnerabilities). I am going to allow my mind and my heart to say what it wants to say and allow the pieces to fall where they may.”
