A Mother Slams Hrithik Roshan For His Insensitive Comments About Kangana Ranaut’s Mental Health
In a sharp open letter to Hrithik Roshan, a mother has thrashed the Bollywood actor for writing “insensitive” remarks against Kangana Ranaut. Just when the personal tiff between the two stars began to turn into an ugly legal battle, Hrithik came out with a statement commenting on Kangana’s mental health and claimed that she suffered from Asperger’s Syndrome. It invited the fury of enough people, who now question his uncalled behaviour.
The mother, whose 9-year-old son also suffers from Asperger’s syndrome, slammed Hrithik and questioned his knowledge about the “mental disability”. She said Hrithik has offended everyone suffering from the disease and raised a serious finger.
I am writing to you referring to today’s Mumbai Mirror’s cover page article, Mr. Hrithik Roshan claiming Ms.Kangana Rangavat having Asperger’s Syndrome. Well, the purpose is not to dwell into celebrity lives, however, I have a hitch here, Mr. Roshan talking about Asperger’s Syndrome and specifically the mention of ‘imagining things’.
It saddens to know celebrities holding certain credibility in the mass making statements without any reference points. Kindly note, individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome DO NOT imagine things. It is best to orient oneself by simply reading thoroughly through DSM IV guidelines before making any judgmental statements.
Individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome are cognitively remarkable, they are impaired socially. There is no study or research advocating any delusional or hallucinatory kind of behavior being displayed by them.
As an individual with moral responsibility towards the society should not be craving to use fancy words without investigating the true meaning. Loose talks by neurotypicals question their own mental well-being. Unfortunately, in this uncalled bargain, the layman is affected by a wrong disposition of true facts. Not withholding the impact thereafter, which will have a direct effect on individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome.
I urge Mumbai Mirror firstly to print referenced material and clear all dust around Asperger’s Syndrome. Secondly, Mr. Hrithik Roshan should make a public apology for hurting sentiments of neurologically impaired individuals.
I would appreciate a response on this note.
Proud mother of a 9-year-old son with Asperger’s.
Hrithik is said to have hurt many of his fans for his ungentlemanly behaviour, considering his rapport with his female co-stars has remained clean till now. Kangana is definitely an exception. We wonder what went so terribly wrong between the once good friends that led to all this backlash.
