Hrithik RoshanHrithik Roshan has been sent a legal notice by former Vice Chairman of Maharashtra Minority Commission Abraham Mathai accusing him of 'hurting sentiments' of the Christian community by making a reference to 'Pope' in a tweet directed at Kangana Ranaut.

Mathai's lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee said the notice has been sent to the 42-year-old actor under the provision of Section 295-A of the Indian Penal Code, asking the actor to apologise in seven days failing which a criminal complaint will be filed.

Hrithi had tweeted that his chances of having affair with the Pope are much more than with the women the media has been linking him up with.
