Hrithik Roshan claims ‘Affair with Pope’ tweet misunderstood

New Delhi: Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan recently took to his Twitter handle to seek an apology for his “affair with Pope” tweet and said that it has been misunderstood.

“Seems my tweet about His Holiness has led 2misunderstanding. My apologies 4 hurt caused 2religious or other sentiments. Was unintentional,” he wrote.

This apology came after the Christian secular forum in Mumbai, earlier this week, slapped a legal notice on the ‘Bang Bang’ actor and sought an unconditional apology for the tweet.

The notice alleged that the tweet is “hurting the religious sentiments.”

As per a leading news channel, Hrithik’s lawyer earlier said that they have not received any notice yet, but the star is ready to seek an apology, if religious sentiments were hurt.

Amidst rumours of dating Kangana Ranaut, Hrithik in January had tweeted, “Ther r more chances of me having had an affair with d Pope dan any of d (Im sure wonderful)women d media hs ben naming.Thanks but no thanks.”

Hrithik had tweeted this on January 28 as a public reaction to an interview by his alleged former girlfriend Kangana, wherein she said that a “silly ex” was giving her trouble and causing her to lose roles.

Two weeks ago, the two had allegedly sent out legal notices to each other after they got involved in an ugly spat, making controversial statements against each other. (ANI)
