WEB DESK: Ever since his explosive revelations about his ex-girlfriend and actress Kangana Ranaut came out on Thursday morning, actor Adhyayan Suman has been inundated by calls and messages. He says that many find his opinion a publicity gimmick but that doesn’t bother him.
“Most of them congratulated me for speaking out. Some, however, saw me as a publicity seeker. Let them. It doesn’t bother me. I had to say what I had to say because another human being was going through pain that he did not invite himself,” says Adhyayan referring to Hrithik Roshan, the actor who has been caught in a Kangana-centric constellation of accusations and counter-accusations.
Adhyayan gives Hrithik a clean chit, and reveals Kangana was besotted by the “Krrish” star from the time they did “Kites” together.
“Even before my relationship with Kangana I was aware of her infatuation for Hrithik Roshan because Hrithik’s mother (Pinky Roshan) is my mother’s friend,” he said.
Adhyayan talks of Kangana’s growing infatuation for Hrithik while they were shooting in Las Vegas for “Kites”.
“She was giving him way more attention than healthy or warranted. As her boyfriend it made me uncomfortable,” says Adhyayan.
Then on Valentine’s Day while uploading telephone numbers on the new cellphone that he had gifted Kangana, Adhyayan discovered “at least 70” messages from Kangana To Hrithik.
Adhyayan feels it is important for people to know that it is not just the woman who’s prone to be in an abusive relationship. That the man too can be at the receiving end.
“I was abused verbally and physically,” said Adhyayan.
He recalls a party at Hrithik Roshan’s residence where Kangana accused an actor of grabbing her posterior. On the way down four flights of stairs Adhyayan was abused.
“She slapped me hard because according to her I didn’t grab the actor who had grabbed her posterior. I was stunned and teary-eyed with all the guests and media persons going up and down. It was humiliating and hurtful.
“I went through such abuse many times over. Not just me, my father was also abused repeatedly. I want people to know that men often suffer abuse in a relationship. But their pain is not taken seriously,” said the actor.
For those who feel he is doing this for publicity Adhyayan has only a shrug of indifference to offer.
