Unless you have been living under a rock, you'll probably know that Kangana Ranaut has locked horns with, firstly, a journalist, and then the entire entertainment media. "They have a major role to play in my success, and I am grateful to them". "I feel if two people have problems, they should sit together and sort it out". On Sunday, Ranaut launched an attack on the reporter even before he could ask his question during a song launch event of her film JudgeMentall Hai Kya.
She further says that such journalists simply arrive at press conferences to eat the free food and are in fact what she calls "professional trolls". If I call myself an artiste, I should have some work.
"I beg to you please ban me, because I don't want that you guys can make money out of me", Ranaut said in the video. I have zero tolerance for traitors of the country. These three or four people formed a guild against me, I think it was formed yesterday.
In the two-part video, Kangana stated that she would not apologise to journalists, who she alleges, are a "ganging up against her" and are on sale for Rs 50-60.
On Wednesday Ekta Kapoor, the film's producer issued an apology and urged media to cover her film.
Meanwhile, the makers of Judgementall Hai Kya recently released the trailer of the film. "This section of journalists who relentlessly try to disturb the integrity and unity of a nation; the people who try to destroy the image of the country and keep propagating their anti-national thoughts, there's no penalty against such people in our constitution".
Condemning Kangana's behaviour, members of the recently formed Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India (EJGI) on Tuesday collectively chose to boycott Kangana and demanded a public apology from the National Award-winning actress. But what's the difference between her and that guy since she has resorted to lines like "tum logon ke baap dadaon ko bhi maine lohe ke channe chabaen" (I've given a hard time to your fathers and grandfathers) to ridicule the people in the media business? First, Kangana had claimed that journalists are busy in a "smear campaign" against the actress because they did not give good reviews to her film, Manikarnika.
