Aditya Pancholi rubbishes link up rumours with Kangana
Aditya Pancholi controls his shock and anger at the reports allegedly describing Kangana Ranaut as his girlfriend.
'I've been instigated to talk against Kangana. I've been told she has been using me. But that's complete rubbish. In fact, I've forwarded the nasty messages about Kangana to her. Kangana isn't my girlfriend. I never said any such thing. Why would I? I would never speak like that about someone I care so much for. She means so much to me and my family.
'At the same time, I'd like to clear that I'm not her father and my daughter isn't her sister. I've been in this industry for years. I've had so many flings and affairs. I'm not a kiss and tell guy. I did have a temper problem. But I'm not a bad guy. I'm not a conniving guy. And I'm not into women at all for the last five years,' Aditya told IANS.
Aditya was last seen in Sanjay Gupta's 'Musafir' as inspector Tiger.
So, what's the nature of his friendship with Kangana?
'She's a very dear friend of mine. I know Kangana from the time she came to Mumbai. I was the first person she met. I can swear on my mother nothing would make me happier than to see her successful.'
Aditya says he has not done any favours to the actress, who made her mark with debut vehicle film 'Gangster - A Love Story' and proved her credentials once again in her second release 'Woh Lamhe'.
Both the films were based on true-life stories - 'Gangster' was about mobster Abu Salem's affair with actress Monica Bedi and the next one was based on Mahesh Bhatt's relationship with Parveen Babi.
'It was her destiny that she met me. When I saw her I was stuck by her honesty and innocence. I knew she could be misled in this industry. Kangana was so naive and pure.'
Aditya says he is closer to Kangana's family than her.
'I don't speak to her as much as I do to her father and sister. I speak to Kangana's father at least five times a day. When her sister was attacked I fought for them because I wanted justice done. I didn't want a beautiful girl like Kangana's sister to be ruined.
'Whatever influence I had, I used it to help her. I didn't do it to be given a bravery award. I've only the best intentions for Kangana. If her career goes wrong because of me I'd never forgive myself.'
Aditya says he and Kangna share a special bonding but it is not like father-daughter relationship.
'She isn't my girlfriend at all. And I've no control over her life or career. I just worry that she doesn't make any wrong move.'
So what happened on that night when Aditya apparently got violent with her on the road?
'At 1 a.m. she was travelling alone on an auto-rickshaw. You tell me, is it right for her to do that when she has been getting death threats? I called her and tried to stop and then came on the scene to take her back. There was no physical violence at all. I wouldn't dare get violent with her.
'You think I've a temper? You should see her when she's mad. I call her 'Jhansi ki Rani'. I'm scared of her. I never touched Kangana or the auto driver. I just asked her to get into the car. Stubbornly she flung my hand away and went across the road and sat in another auto-rickshaw.
'The next morning my wife got a call from a paper saying they've visual evidence that I slapped Kangana. How can I do that? She's like a little delicate child. If people think I'm controlling her life then I swear I'll never meet her. If I can't stop her from going on an auto-rickshaw, how can I tell her which movie to do? I'm so hurt on her account.'
Aditya does not want anybody to sling mud at Kangana's character.
'She has worked so hard to get where she is. I don't want anyone to point a finger at her because of me. In my whole life I haven't met anyone as sincere and honest as her. I'll disappear from the face of this earth. But I won't harm her.'
Aditya is sorry to have hurt his lovely wife Zarina Wahab.
'She doesn't like my daughter's name dragged into my controversies. Sanaa is a child. She's now leaving for LA to study acting and then she's to pursue her career.'
Aditya admits his temper is his biggest flaw.
'My biggest weakness is my temper. I want to act. But I can't and won't do crap work. I don't go anywhere to ask for work. I don't want some child to put on a DVD 50 years from now and wonder who this fool Aditya Pancholi was. I was appreciated in whatever movies I did. And I'd like to leave it at that.'
