Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut's lawyer said that he sent a counter notice to actor Hrithik Roshan on behalf of his client as his demand that she tender a public apology to him for defamation is baseless.

The controversy between the two actors, who were rumoured to have been dating in the past, has taken an ugly turn with both of them slapping legal notices against each other.

While Hrithik sent a legal notice to Kangana a few days ago for tarnishing his image, the actress' lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee told IANS: "A notice was sent by Hrithik's lawyer. It was regarding the application of mind because the notice of defamation was sent to Kangana without showing any such instances where the defamation was actually made out."

"There was no case made in the notice. So, it was an absolutely baseless and useless notice. I sent a counter notice to them," added Mr Siddiquee.

Mr Siddiquee said that while Hrithik has claimed that he does not know Kangana socially, he has enough "substance" to prove otherwise.

"Hrithik has been attending my client's birthday party. My client has been attending his birthday party, his father's birthday party. This is social meeting only," the lawyer said.

According to the notice, Hrithik reportedly wants Kangana to hold a press conference and tender an apology to him, making it clear that she had not hinted at Hrithik Roshan as her 'silly ex.'(Also Read: Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut Slap Legal Notices on Each Other)However, Mr Siddiquee has questioned why Hrithik is considering that he is the "silly ex" that Kangana once mentioned to the media.

"Most importantly, when Kangana says my 'silly ex,' why does this gentleman react and claims he was only the silly ex. She didn't take anybody's name. You (Hrithik) gave this statement on Twitter that 'I would rather date a Pope,' which was followed up with the notice," said Mr Siddiquee.

Issues began when Kangana hinted at Hrithik being her 'ex' when she said in an interview that she fails to understand "why exes do silly things to get your attention."

The topic in discussion was Hrithik's hand in getting Kangana replaced by Sonam Kapoor in Aashiqui 3.
