The Hrithik-Kangana standoff has left the industry and fans in a tizzy.
What makes the case so twisted, is the fact that every new piece of information or evidence is enough to sway public perception from one end to the other. And we all know in this trial by media, only one can come out clean.
To understand how these new images impact the case, here’s what you need to know:
# It all started when Kangana referred to Hrithik as a ‘silly ex’ in an interview. Hrithik’s response to the comment was ‘more chances of me having an affair with the Pope’ (for which he got slammed later). Read More
# Things got serious when Kangana claimed she was romantically involved with Hrithik and exchanged emails regularly. Hrithik denied the affair and exchanging any emails with Kangana.
# Once Hrithik was shown the emails exchanged between him and Kangana, Hrithik approached the cyber crime cell and filed a complaint against the imposter. Read More
# Owing to the content of the emails, the two were involved in a legal battle to prove whether the recipient was Hrithik or an imposter. Read More
# While the legal proceedings were underway, leaked copies of the email exchange between Hrithik and Kangana’s sister were leaked to the media. The emails showed that Hrithik was actually oblivious to the whole ‘affair’ and proved his innocence. Read More
# As a rebuttal, an image was leaked to the media which showed a close up of Hrithik and Kangana. In the image, the two were caught cozying up to each other at a party. With this leak, the public perception changed and people were convinced that the two were indeed involved romantically. Read More
Which brings us to the new images
After the leaked image, more images of the same party started doing rounds on social media. In the new pictures, Hrithik and Kangana are both seeing having a gala time. Both are wearing the same clothes too. But, there’s just one small problem – they weren’t the only ones at the party. Hrithik’s ex-wife Sussanne was also at the party.
We now know that the party was hosted by Arjun Rampal around the release of Krrish 3 in December 2010. In addition to Rampal, Hrithik and Kangana, the party was also attended by Arjun Rampal’s wife Mehr, actor Dino Morea, director Abhishek Kapoor and designer Nandita Mahtani.
Sources are also claiming that the leaked intimate picture between the two was actually part of a group picture that was zoomed and cropped to make it look intimate. The grainy picture quality only lends more proof to the theory.
Although the images might not necessarily help Hrithik in court, they have certainly put an end to speculations that arose due to the previously leaked ‘intimate’ picture.
With the ball now in Kangana’s court, we can expect another revelation pretty soon.
