Mumbai Police have asked a local court to issue a notice to a company headquartered in Pennsylvania, USA, for information on the 'imposter' who actor Hrithik Roshan says corresponded with Kangana Ranaut.
"If the court does not issue the notice then the police will not be able to probe the complaint further due to lack of information," the application, filed by cyber crime cell Inspector Kalpana Gadekar, said.
The police have already written to American firm Mail and Media Inc., which runs 'email.com,' and were allegedly told by the legal department that they needed a court order to provide information.
Last month, Hrithik Roshan filed a police complaint claiming that the email ID 'hroshan.email.com' was being used by an 'imposter' to correspond with Ms Ranaut and others.
Kangana Ranaut allegedly thanked Mr Roshan for his praise of her work in Queen at a party in 2014, to which he told her that he hadn't seen the film. Ms Ranaut alleges that she had received an email from him about Queen, one of many mails thay had allegedly exchanged over six months.
Ms Ranaut and Mr Roshan reportedly dated after starring in the films Kites and Krrish 3. Hrithik Roshan's lawyers claim they have evidence that the alleged affair never happened and that Ms Ranaut is stalling the police investigation. Mr Roshan sent Ms Ranaut a legal notice in March after she appeared to refer to him as a 'silly ex' in an interview.
Kangana Ranaut has accused Mr Roshan of 'slut-shaming' her by circulating private photos and mails.
