Hrithik Roshan visited the Mumbai Police's Crime Branch office on Saturday to record a statement in connection with his 2016 complaint about fake emails in his name to Kangana Ranaut. The actor was summoned to appear at 11 am and was seen leaving his residence in a black tee and cap.Hrithik's complaint in 2016 alleged that someone was impersonating him and was emailing Kangana from a bogus email ID in his name. The complaint was followed by a spat between the two. Hrithik had accused Kangana of harassing him by sending him hundreds of emails. Following an initial probe, police recorded Kangana's statement after concluding that the emails were sent from her id. However, Kangana denied sending emails to Hrithik.
A case under section 419 (cheating by personation) of IPC and sections 66C (identity theft), 66D (cheating by personation using computer resources) of the Information Technology Act was registered against an unknown person at Cyber Police Station. Yesterday, after reports had come in that Hrithik had been summoned to record his statement, Kangana reacted to it on her Twitter handle. She referred to the actor as 'silly ex' in her tweet. She wrote, "Duniya kahan se kahan pahunch gayi magar mera silly ex abhi bhi waheen hai usi modh pe jahan yeh waqt dobara laut ke nahi jane wala ..."The War actor had also gone ahead to deny any relationship with the actress back in 2016 when she had referred to him as 'silly ex.' Hrithik had even sent a legal notice over it to Kangana. The police had intervened and recorded Kangana's statement in the matter as well. It was later in December 2020, that the case was transferred to the CIU (Crime Intelligence Unit) at the request of the actor's lawyer.
