Kangana Ranaut is back and is in her element.

Just a few days before her next film Simran releases, the Queen of Bollywood has revisited the entire controversy with Hrithik Roshan from last year and spoken about how she felt after her email conversations with the actor were leaked. Kangana admitted the entire debacle left her traumatised mentally, reported The Indian Express. 

The sassy starlet appeared on popular TV show Aap Ki Adaalat recently. Before airing the episode, the makers of the show shared a teaser video which created waves among Hrithik and Kangana fans. In the 43 seconds video, Kangana tells the host Rajat Sharma to call Hrithik on the show and ask him each and every question for it is him who is answerable for everything.

“I have faced so much humiliation. I cried for nights! I was unable to sleep. Emails on my name were released on Google and people still find fun in reading them. I need an apology for this inappropriate behaviour,” said Kangana in the video. The full episode will be aired on Saturday at 10 pm.

In the video Kangana is also heard saying, “I loved him a lot! The poetry which I wrote exclusively for him, he used them to tarnish my image. It is just like a second death when someone does that to you.”

For all those who washed away the incident from their memory thinking it was done and dusted, here is what happened. Reports of an alleged Hrithik-Kangana affair started doing the rounds after Krrish 3 (2013). They were said to have come close during the shooting of the film and the rumours gained momentum after Hrithik officially separated from his wife Sussanne in December 2013.

Till 2015, the speculations only grew stronger. But the twist in the tale came in 2016, when reports of Hrithik being responsible for Kangana’s ouster from Aashiqui 3 sprung up. Though Hrithik then maintained his stoic silence on it, Kangana being her own self reacted to it saying, “I don’t know why exes do silly things to get your attention. For me, that chapter is over and I don’t dig graves.”

This is when Hrithik finally broke, first through a tweet and then, a legal notice asking Kangana to apologise for damaging his reputation. What took the issue to entirely a different level was Kangana’s 21-page legal notice claiming she had never mentioned Hrithik’s name and charged the Kaabil actor with criminal intimidation and threat.

Kangana's response to Saif Ali Khan's 'nepotism joke' apology is jaw dropping!

Sources close to Hrithik cleared that the actor never sent a congratulatory email to Kangana for her National Award win and the emails she had been receiving were that from a fake email address. Also, apparently when Hrithik revealed his original email ID to Kangana, she used to send 50 emails to him a day, including some videos of herself. Following this were a series of legal notices which both the actors slapped on each other.
