Hrithik and Kangana’s public battle is bringing to light some more ugly secrets. While both actors seem to be playing the dangerous game of character assassination, Kangana’s ex-boyfriend Adhyayan Suman just made things a lot worse for her reputation. In a tell-all interview to DNA, Adhyayan reveals details of their abusive relationship, saying that he can relate to Hrithik’s unfortunate position as another one of Kangana’s targets.


Kangana is Deeply Insecure: The ‘Bhatt’ Story

Adyayan Suman first saw the other side of his former girlfriend Kangana Ranaut, when she got angry about him not going public about their relationship. Adhyayan claims that Kangana abused him verbally and was deeply insecure about her success.

A month into our relationship we were shooting a song in South Africa, when I got a call from a journalist asking me if I was dating Kangana. I denied it saying she was just a friend, however clichéd it sounded. The journalist told me he had found out that I went to her room at night. I told him that it was wrong to talk about a woman like that. I hung up and she (Kangana) began screaming that, ‘You are trying to hide the fact that you are seeing me! “You think I am just your f*** buddy?”

Adhyayan goes on to say that this episode was only the beginning. Soon after Raaz 2, director Mahesh Bhatt called Adhyayan to appreciate his performance. According to the actor, this didn’t go down well with Kangana and she showered him with verbal abuses.

One day when I was at her house, time, Bhattsaab called me after seeing the rushes of Raaz 2 and told me he loved my work and he would direct me. He quit directing by then, so I was like ‘Wow, that’s amazing!’ I was talking on speakerphone and she was hearing everything. She told me, “Behen**** mujhe koi kyun nahi phone kar rahe yaar?” That was the first time I heard her abuse. I was made to feel guilty and like shit for no reason. I realised that she wasn’t happy that the Bhatts had started giving me so much attention. I made sure that Mukeshji and Bhattsaab called her told her how good she was too.

Kangana Was Verbally and Physically Abusive

According to Adhyayan Suman’s recollection of his difficult relationship with Kangana Ranaut, he says that the actress would repeatedly hit him. Adhyayan recalls one of Hrithik’s birthday parties, to which both he and Kangana had been invited. But he vividly remembers that she ignored him completely. There was also another instance when Kangana complained of an actor trying to grope her in a party. When he suggested that they should leave, she decided to stay on and party. But later as they left, she slapped him and abused him too.

She started networking and I was left alone with a drink in my hand. I was feeling really upset and left and I got a little high. One moment she made me feel loved and then in the next, it was like I was a nobody in her life! I was standing at the bar alone when Kangana walked up to me said some actor at the party was trying to grab her a**. I felt protective towards her but I was at someone’s house and creating a scene would be rude so I told her, ‘Let’s go.’ She went back to doing her thing. Later she came and told me let’s go right now. I was walking down the stairs with her, when she turned around and slapped me! She said, “Mother Fu***, behen****! Bh*sd*ke! You are f***** jealous of my success!” The intensity of the slap was so hard I was almost crying. That was the first time she got violent. I was tearing up like a child and shivering at the violently abusive language. She told me to drop her home, and then in the car, she started hitting me. Eventually, I asked my driver to stop the car. I decided to take a rickshaw home. I was in the middle of the road crying and shouting at her, “You are crazy! F***** up!” And she was abusing me MC/BC gaalis. My family driver of 20 years came crying to me and said, mere liye thoda sa bhi pyar hai toh ghar chalo. I will never forget that night.

Kangana Humiliated Adhyayan in Public

Adhyayan Suman goes on to share details of how his relationship with Kangana only got worse. The actor reveals an incident from a press conference held during the promotions of Raaz 2, where she humiliated him in public.

The next day we had a press meet for Raaz 2 at my building. Kangana said she wouldn’t come. Our PR started panicking but then she turned up. I took held her hand and said, “Baby I am so sorry. I love you.” She slapped me hard, again. I was just zapped! I was crying like a kid… and then the entire rant and MC/BC gaalis began. I realised then that she’d made up the whole thing about the actor trying to grab her a**. She said that just to f*** my mind with these mind games. To the waiting media, even though I felt like a complete a**hole I gave an interview saying, ‘She was one of the most beautiful actresses that we have in the country today and a huge star.’ In her interview she mocked me and said I was the most spoiled brat that she knew who didn’t come to sets on time etc. I just laughed it off like a joke, I had no other option. I had just come out after being physically abused and emotionally tortured I had to praise her and hear things about how I didn’t want to work etc. It was traumatising.

Kangana Wanted Adhyayan to Take Drugs

If you think you’ve heard enough, you’re wrong. Adhyayan Suman’s horror story isn’t over yet. The actor recalls that he had the worst argument with Kangana when he refused to do drugs with her.

On her birthday in March 2008 at The Leela, she had invited everybody that she had worked with. She said “Let’s do cocaine in the night.” I had smoked hash with her a couple of times before, and didn’t like it so I said no. I remember getting into the biggest argument that night because I said no to cocaine.

Kangana Abused Adhyayan’s Father Shekhar Suman

According to Adhyayan’s traumatic recollection of his abusive relationship with Kangana Ranaut, the abuse didn’t end with him but even extended to his father, Shekhar Suman. He talks about a house party hosted by the Sumans where Kangana apparently created an ugly scene in front of their close friends.

On January 13th, 2009, at my birthday party at home, after most people left, Mohit Suri, Kangana, Kunal Deshmukh, my parents and dad’s few close friends were talking about how actors sometimes tend to sell our souls for commercial films. Kangana started to get offended and said, ‘We don’t sell our souls’. Dad said he was giving a generic example but she took it personally and she called my father a b****** in front of everyone. My father was furious. She left screaming started screaming abuses at him in Hindi. One thing I can’t still forgive myself for — I was a bad son to my parents during that time. This one moment changed my life forever— the way she spoke to my father. But at the time, she had manipulated my mind so beautifully that rather than breaking up with her that night, I screamed at my father. I smashed things because I was losing my mind.

The Raaz 2 actor has also revealed in great detail that Kangana believed in, and practiced black magic. He also says in his account that he saw about 50-70 messages in her phone, that had been sent to Hrithik Roshan. Adhyayan also makes the observation that Hrithik always maintained his distance from her and in his opinion, never reciprocated to Kangana’s feelings.

Adhyayan Suman’s revelations, accurate or otherwise, will probably work wonders in Hrithik’s favour, as far as public perception goes. But the timing of this interview and the actor’s decision to finally come out with his side of the story, are likely to be a huge setback for Kangana Ranaut, in her attempt to prove her innocence.
