Hrithik denies dating rumours

MUMBAI: Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, who separated from his wife Sussanne Khan in 2013, says there are “more chances” of him “having had an affair with the Pope” than with the women that the media has been linking him to.

Roshan was not just linked to Barbara Mori, but also to Kangana Ranaut — both his co-stars in Kites.

In a recent interview, Ranaut addressed gossip that it was on Roshan’s insistence that she was dropped from Aashiqui 3, which now features Sonam Kapoor with the Dhoom 2 star.

In response to a question on this, the Queen actress said, “I don’t know why exes do silly things to get your attention. For me that chapter is over and I don’t dig graves.”

This, by many, is being seen as a confirmation that Roshan and Ranaut were indeed dating. However, the Jodhaa Akbar actor has chosen to speak out, and tweeted, “There are more chances of me having had an affair with the Pope than any of the (I’m sure wonderful) women the media has been naming. Thanks, but no thanks.”
