Akshay Kumar hopes Hrithik-Kangana feud ends soon

Mumbai: Bollywood star Akshay Kumar on Friday said he “hopes” the on-going feud between actors Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut comes to a close soon.

The two actors have been at loggerheads since the Queen (2013) star called Hrithik her “silly ex”. The feud between Hrithik and his Krrish 3 (2013) co-star turned nasty after they slapped legal notices on each other.

Asked about his views on the “war in Bollywood”, Akshay, who lives in the same apartment as that of the 42-year-old Bang Bang (2014) star, quipped, “Bollywood may kahan meri building may chal raha hai (war is going on in my building).”

The Boss (2013) actor, however, said he hopes that the raging row between the two is resolved soon.

“All I want is it to end and everything get resolved peacefully. That is what the whole thing is … it shouldn’t happen. Time will come now, it has to stop now. Everything will be solved, let’s hope for that,” Akshay told reporters.

The actor was speaking at the song launch of his upcoming film Housefull 3.

Abhishek Bachchan, who was also present at the event, said he “agrees” with what Akshay said on the matter.

Hrithik, who was the first to send the legal notice, has demanded Kangana apologise in a press conference and clear the air about their alleged affair, which he firmly refutes.

A defiant Kangana had said she was not a “dim-witted” teenager and refused to apologise. The 29-year-old multiple National Award winning actress instead shot off a counter- notice to Hrithik, warning him to take back his notice or face a criminal case.
