Bollywood’s Bad Girl Kangana Ranaut is back in the news again
It’s not good news at all. Kangana Ranaut banter with a reporter last week turned so ugly that the Entertainment Journalist Guild of India had to intervene. The Guild demanded an apology from the Producer Ekta Kapoor and asked her to condemn the actress’s behavior.
Kangana Ranaut Claims the reporter was running a Smear Campaign
It all happened during the song launching ceremony of Kangana’s upcoming film “Judgemental Hai Kiya” where she accused the reporter of running a smear campaign against her film Manikarnika. She made that claim when the reporter was about to ask her a question during the media interaction, which led to the ugly argument.
Kangana Ranaut also claimed that he has harmed her brand despite spending 3 hours with her in her vanity and also having lunch with her. She elaborated that he has tarnished her reputation and called her jingoistic in his articles.
On the other hand, the reporter has confirmed that he met her for an interview only and didn’t have lunch and also never messaged her which she has claimed that he did. Kangana also bashed him for creating an argument regarding Star versus journalist.
However, the production house Balaji Telefilms condemned their lead actress’s behavior and shared a Press release regarding the incident. They have apologized on behalf of their team for the incident and shared:
“A lot is being reported about the debate that ensued between our film JudgeMentall Hai Kya’s actor and journalist Justin Rao, at the film’s song launch event on July 7th, 2019. Unfortunately, the event took an unpleasant turn,” the statement said.
“While the people involved in it fairly held their own perspectives but because it happened at the event of our film, we, as the producers, would like to apologize and express regret for this untoward incident.
“Moreover, we did not intend to disrespect or hurt anyone’s sentiments. Our film JudgeMentall Hai Kya releases on July 26th and we urge the media to not let this one incident hamper the team effort that has gone behind making the film.”
Kangana Ranaut’s won’t apologize says her sister!
Although the PR of Balaji was trying to control the damage, on the other hand, Kangana Ranaut‘s sister and manager Rangoli Chandal tweeted that the actor would not apologize and also termed the journalist anti-national.
