NEW DELHI: Actor and B-Town’s Greek God Hrithik Roshan has been in the line of troll fire lately. The actor, who has been awaiting the release of his upcoming film ‘Fighter’, has been targetted by a section of people on social media once again as they accused him of deliberately pretending to be a Hindu lately for commercial benefits. Some of them even went ahead and questioned the actor for dating a Muslim girl.
For the unversed, Hrithik Roshan is rumoured to be in a relationship with actress and singer Saba Azad. While they have not spoken about their relationship, the buzz is strong that the two have been going strong and are quite serious about each other.
A few users targeted Hrithik for allegedly copying his ‘Kite’ co-star Kangana Ranaut’s style of celebrating Hinduism and nationalism. They claimed that lately, Hrithik has started visiting temples, making his presence felt at religious festival celebrations, and has been celebrating all Hindu festivals.
One of the posts on X, formerly known as Twitter reads, “This is an unmistakable pattern. He is wanting to be seen and counted as #Hindu. Nothing wrong with that. Just that he never did this earlier. It’s a reaction to #KanganaRanaut. Those who say that #Kangana is obsessed with #HR should note. It’s actually the other way round.”
Another post read, “At one hand he is pretending to be a #Hindu for commercial benefit and on the other he is dating a radical #anti #Hindu like #SabaAazad. People can see through this #Hrithik. You don’t have to prove with each and every festival how big a #Hindu you are. It’s a deepfake.”

People keep saying that #KanganaRanaut has turned Hindu but she is unashamedly doing so. Here is this guy softly and surely advertising himself in each Hindu festival to exploit sentiments. He is equally trying to ride hindu bandwagon something that he never did earlier in his_ pic.twitter.com/sUfuIBnfsq

#DeepFake alert !!
This is extremely fake on part of #HritikRoshan. We all know it’s only because he thinks his films will benefit from this. Exactly copying of #KanganaRanaut just that in his heart he is anything but a devout #Hindu. pic.twitter.com/dZ0msfV6uM
