Farhan Akhtar Facebook post supporting Hrithik Roshan.

Ever since the Kangana and Hrithik controversy started making headlines, Bollywood chose to stay away from it. But now that Hrithik Roshan has decided to speak out, his friends from the industry have come out in support of him.

Farhan Akhtar took to social media to express his views on the matter, and if we go by his post, he clearly is in support of Hrithik Roshan.

Here’s what the actor had to say:


Farhan Akhtar Goes to Blame the media

Some of our most reputed journalists have, consciously or unconsciously, pushed one side of the narrative, WITHOUT having or presenting any evidence to back the claims being made by the woman. They’ve accepted her story at face value. Isn’t this discriminating against the other party?

Claims ‘the Woman’ is Obstructing Justice

While he denies ever mailing her, he has filed an official complaint, shared, and submitted all necessary information and documents, handed over his personal phone and laptop to the concerned authorities. The woman has not. Apparently, she has avoided, till date, submitting her personal communication devices, citing some reason or the other. In some past cases, this lack of cooperation has been deemed to be obstruction of justice.

‘He Never even Replied to the Emails’

Apparently, he has over a thousand emails from her official email account, which are intimate and sexual in their content. She claims not to have written them but alleges that he hacked her account and mailed himself. If they were in a seven-year-long mutually agreeable relationship, why would he need to do that? Does it not defy logic? Also, did he reply to any of her emails? As far as we know, No. Not one single time.

‘The Picture was Manipulated’

She posted a picture of them together, claiming it was taken during the years of their alleged affair. That picture was proved, beyond doubt, to have been manipulated. The actual image consisted of a group of friends, including the man’s wife (now ex-wife) standing together in a party. Why were the others intentionally cropped out?

Questions One’s Thought Process

Pause here, and ask yourself... If a woman was to receive these sort of emails from a man, and she claimed harassment, what would your immediate reaction be? Would you have given the man the benefit of doubt by believing him if he said they were in a relationship, and that she had hacked into his computer and sent herself the mails...?

So What is the Truth?

Well, the plain truth is that WE do not know the truth.The reason I felt the need to say this is that it is apparent that some people have already jumped to conclusions, while some are deriving some sort of voyeuristic pleasure by encouraging the woman to carry on speaking.This is being done without a seconds pause to consider the effect her words will have on the person, his family, or his children. As great as all of it may be for TRP, it’s in terrible taste.

Is the whole of Bollywood on one side and Kangana on the other? What’s the truth? Who is to be blamed? Well, guess it’s a long time before we get these answers.
