The Hrithik Roshan-Kangana Ranaut mud-slinging has been in the news for some time now and it's about to get worse. While earlier this month there were reports suggesting that the rumoured pair got engaged in Paris in January 2014, a friend of Hrithik's said a look into the superstar's passport will clear things up.

"It is easy to ascertain by looking at his passport if Hrithik was in Paris at the time he was supposed to have gotten engaged to her. His close friends and family members have been telling him to put the facts out there and clear his name. He will do it in good time," the friend told DNA.

The 42-year-old has been to Paris just one time and that too for two days, with his sons — Hrehaan and Hridaan — in tow, the daily reported.

This narrative contradicts what Kangana's close friend revealed in a tell-all chat with the Mumbai Mirror. Apparently, Hrithik had proposed to Kangana in the French capital, assuring it wasn't out of a rebound. The "Mohenjo Daro" actor had split with now ex-wife Sussanne Khan a month before he went down on his knees for the "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" star.

However, Hrithik's friend told the daily that the actor has remained silent for quite some time but decided to clear his name when the "silly-ex" statement was flashed across publications. He wanted to be left alone and thus sent a legal notice, the friend explained.

"And now that it is all in the open, he will clear his name. He is just waiting for the cyber crime team to give him a clean chit and then everyone will see that he is the victim here," the friend further elaborated.

On the work front, Hrithik is gearing up for epic-adventure film "Mohenjo Daro." The film arrives in theatres Aug. 2016 and also stars newcomer Pooja Hegde as his love interest. Kangana is busy with Vishal Bhardwaj's "Rangoon," which also stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan.
