He was responding to rumours about his relationship with international actress Kangana Ranaut, also a Bollywood star.

The actress Kangana Ranaut and Abraham Mathai, the All India President of the group Indian Christian Voice, were thought to be upset by Hrithik's tweet, according to The Times of India.

The popular actor had landed himself into legal trouble when a Christian group slapped a notice on him for hurting religious sentiments.
