Advocate Rizwan Siddiquee said Hrithik cannot wash his hands off the matter now after 'criminally' threatening the 28-year-old actress.
"Hrithik's statements made to the media are nothing but efforts to gain public sympathy. He cannot wash his hands off the matter now after having criminally threatened my client and having intimidated her, without any provocation. He also cannot deny the fact my client never named him anywhere and it was he himself who claimed to be 'Silly Ex' in his notice," the lawyer said in a statement tonight.

"Besides his own acts of stating in the media that he would rather 'date a Pope' gave enough fodder to the media to start speculating. How can he blame my client for all his own acts of commissions and omissions?" he added.

Hrithik (42) had sent a notice to Kangana asking her to hold a press conference and tender an apology and make it clear it was not him she meant in the recent comments about a 'silly ex'. Kangana, however, retaliated with a 21-page reply, charging Hrithik with intimidation and threat.

Siddiquee said Kangana is a big star herself and does not need Hrithik's name to garner publicity.

Siddiquee refuted the claim of Hrithik of not knowing Kangana socially, and said the actor had attended the actress' private party and was now 'lying'.

There is enough proof on public platform, which sufficiently proves that Hrithik Roshan is lying," Siddiquee said.
