Actress Kangana Ranaut gave her statement to police in connection with an FIR filed by superstar Hrithik Roshan that an online impostor has been sending e-mails under his guise to his fans, a police official said.
Cyber Crime Branch officials reached Kangana’s residence in western suburbs, where the actress and her sister Rangoli gave their statements, the official said.
Their statements were recorded as witnesses in the impostor case filed by Hrithik. However, police refused to divulge any further details about their statements.
The FIR stated that a fake email-ID has been created and an impostor has been operating it under Hrithik’s guise and misleading many of his fans, including Kangana.
Hrithik’s lawyer had earlier claimed that since Kangana had not recorded her statement to assist in the probe, the proceedings in the legal battle between the two were stalled.
The two actors have been at loggerheads since the “Queen” star had hinted at Hrithik being her ‘silly ex’.
The feud between Hrithik and his “Krrish 3” co-star turned nasty after they slapped legal notices on each other.
42-year-old Hrithik, who was the first to send the legal notice to Kangana, has demanded that she apologise in a press conference and clear the air about their alleged affair which he firmly refutes.
A defiant Kangana, 28, had said she was not a “dim-witted” teenager and refused to apologise. She instead shot off a counter-notice to Hrithik warning him to take back his notice or face a criminal case.
