Hrithik Roshan's Arnab Goswami interview has received overwhelming response from the social media and the hashtag #HrithikSpeaksToArnab trended on Twitter, Facebook and other micro blogging sites.

The controversy surrounding  the relationship between Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut had been creating buzz in the media for the past four years. With every film release of Kangana, the rumours and speculations got stronger. Despite Kangana speaking out against him in interviews every now and then, Hrithik had kept mum on the whole issue.

Finally, Hrithik Roshan decided to pour his heart out and gave his very first media interview on the controversy to Arnab Goswami's news channel Republic on Saturday evening. This interview took social media by storm.

Hrithik Roshan answered all the questions posed by Arnab Goswami and presented his side of the story, maintaining that he was  a peace loving person and doesn't wanted a fight. He not only confessed to being 'uncomfortable' speaking about the issue on national television, but also feared that his words might be misconstrued.

The interview was touted as 'underconfident' but 'real' with Hrithik laying down his guard and exposing his vulnerabilities to the world, being more 'human' than a 'star'. Soon after the 10-minute-long teaser of the interview with The Republic was out, social media went into a frenzy witnessing a never-seen-before avatar of Hrithik Roshan.

When the full interview was aired, Hrithik Roshan's words seem to have touched a chord with the viewers who were seen taking to social media to praise his dignified stance. The netizens hailed the actor for presenting facts and evidence supporting his claims. 

Here are a few tweets of the massive support that the netizens extended to the Bollywood Superstar. Scroll down to watch the video of Hrithik Roshan's Arnab Goswami interview:
