Hrithik Roshan reached the office of the Mumbai Crime Branch to record his statement regarding the email case. The email case which involves actress Kangana Ranaut has been in the headlines since 2017. According to ANI news, Maharashtra’s Crime Intelligence Unit (CIU) has sent a summons to the actor to appear on February 27, 2021.
The legal fight that has been going on between Kangana and Hrithik since 2017 involves an alleged affair between the two. Accordingly, he had filed a case against Kangana under IPC section 419 (cheating by personation), section 66C (identity theft), and 66D (cheating by personation using computer resources) of the Information Technology Act. Hrithik maintains that she was having talks with an impersonator not him and that he did have long chats on the email with her.
Hrithik also demanded a public apology from Kangana Ranaut but when she refused he filed a legal case against her. In response, Kangana counter filed a case against his allegations. Rakesh Roshan had commented in an interview, "It’s now up to the authorities to decide who’s telling the truth. We’ve always believed in the power of the truth. I was taught to be honest by my father (legendary music composer Roshan) and I’ve taught Hrithik the same. In this matter, the truth will be out soon."
