Hrithik’s First Interview On Kangana Controversy, Says He Was Afraid Of Speaking In Public

Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut’s ever-growing controversy is undoubtedly the talk of the town and we stumble upon updates on the story every now and then. A lot is said and written in this regard and now this seems to have taken the form of ‘Maha War’.

Hrithik’s interview with Republic:

For long, Hrithik remained silent over the matter but finally he seems to have made up mind of presenting his side of the story. Subsequent to sharing a long Facebook post, he will now interact with Arnab Goswami from Republic TV and this interview will be aired on Saturday.

Needless to say, the “Kaabil” star wants to clarify things on his part and what could be a better medium for it than a TV interview. Two short promos of this interaction are also released by Republic on its website.

I’ve had enough of it!

When Arnab asked the actor as to why he chose to interact and discuss the matter, he said,

“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 realise 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.”

When Hrithik realized that he was pretending:

Hrithik’s frustration is clearly apparent when he said,

“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.”

I was afraid:

The actor had fear that people might misinterpret his words or get the wrong impression.

“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.”

When silence becomes weakness:

Hrithik actually made a good point when he stated,

“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.”

I wanted to say truth but people stopped me:

The actor must have had a difficult phase of life as it’s reflected in his words. He said,

“It has been four years, I think I have had enough.”

He also often wished to speak “my truth, but people stopped me”.

Even though he was afraid earlier, the case is entirely different now, as he says,

“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.”

Republic shared two short videos of this interview under hashtag #HrithikSpeaksToArnab.
