Me and Kangana were as good as husband and wife, Aditya Pancholi

In the past, Aditya Pancholi and Kangana Ranaut were in a serious relationship. But they had a publicized break-up and now the ‘Queen’ actress made a strong accusation against Aditya that he abused her physically, mentally and emotionally.

In her recent interview, Kangana Ranaut revealed how Adiya Pancholi tortured her and kept her under house arrest and somehow she managed to escape. The actress even claimed that she approached Aditya's wife Zarina Wahab for help but she turned her down.

Following the interview, Aditya not only called Kangana a mad girl and also planned to take legal action against her for tarnishing his image.

Aditya Pancholi in an earlier interview talked about his first meeting with the actress.

"We were as good as husband and wife. I was actually building a house for both of us on Yari Road. We lived together for three years at a friends' place," he said.

Recalling how they first met, Aditya said, "Kangana didn't have a penny when I met her. I saw her the first time on the road. She was on the verge of a nervous breakdown. It was June 27, 2004. She was drenched, and sitting on a bike with a guy from the Asha Chandra Acting Institute... It was pouring. Suddenly, she came up and said a warm 'hi' to me. When she said she was 'Kangana', I remembered a mutual friend had asked me to help her when she reached Mumbai. After that Kangana started calling me up persistently until I agreed to meet her. Initially she was a sweet small town girl. I fell in love with her."

Aditya claimed that he did everything for Kangana but she took advantage of his kindness.

"I was building a home for the two of us. Even the phone she was using was mine. Then one day she told me about this guy who was troubling her. When I asked for an itemised bill my world crashed on my head. The same guy's number recurred repeatedly in the bill. She spoke to this guy for 5,000 minutes in a month. Why was she calling a guy she claimed was troubling her? I should've been warned. But I was completely taken in by her. Things came to such a head that one of her mooh-bola brothers went to Dubai and got himself a job in a hotel on my recommendation without my knowledge. Yes, she has used me," he said.

Aditya even admitted of hitting her because she cheated on him. "After she returned, I read her sent messages to another actor, while she was asleep. Her messages were certainly not innocent. And I remembered that the words she used for this actor were also used by her when she had called me from South Africa. That was the first time I hit her. We fought and made up," he said.

According to Aditya, he spent money like water on Kangana, even after they separated "Some time back she called me to say she wanted money, about Rs 1 crore, to buy a house. (This, after she had complained against me to the police.) I called up a banker-friend and stood as her guarantor and got her a loan of Rs 50 lakh. Then, I gave her Rs 55 lakh cash from my pocket. Of this, she has returned Rs 25 lakh. She still owes me Rs 30 lakh," he said.

Aditya reportedly helped Kangana with other expenses. He said, "I've also spent Rs 10 lakh on her sister's plastic surgery, after the acid attack. But I'm not asking for that back. I paid all the bills. When Mukesh Bhatt asked back for her signing amount of Rs 50,000, I paid that for her too. I've written all that off. But I'd like to have the money that I lent her for her house."
