Kangana Ranaut refuses to apologise to journalist amid media boycott

Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji caught in a dilemma over Kangana Ranaut’s media spat

After many controversies and issues for its sensitive topic and title, Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao starrer Mental Hai Kya was changed to Judgementall Hai Kya. They demanded an apology from Kangana in lieu of her rude and unacceptable behaviour.

Following this, the Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India boycotted the actor and denied giving her media coverage. Ever since the actress got into an ugly spat with a journalist at a song launch of her upcoming film Judgmentall Hai Kya, things have not been going well for her.

After her very public spat with PTI journalist Justin Rao, the Entertainment Journalists Guild of India had chose to boycott the actress from any kind of media coverage. "A job of a journalist is to provide independent assessment of entertainment content; and critical commentary can not be reason enough to lose control, turn against the media and hurl expletives", the release said, adding that if necessary members of the club will take up the matter with "various associations of filmmakers". She also accused the media of having double standards. "We would like to maintain that our intention was not to disrespect or hurt anyone's sentiments", the statement read. "Three or four such journalists have now formed what they call a "guild", which does not even have a proper structure and are now threatening me that they'll ban me".

The production house also expressed the hope the media will not "let this one incident hamper the team effort that has gone behind making the film".

Turkey welcomes power sharing agreement in Sudan
By the end of the over three-hour-long meeting, the two sides had agreed to thrash out an agreement within days. The power-sharing deal comes after intense mediation by Ethiopia and African Union diplomats.

Responding to the ban imposed on her by the journalists Kangana took to Twitter to give her two cents on the situation.

On Tuesday, in its letter to Kapoor, the Guild said the boycott is a collective decision but would extend only to the actor and not affect the film or the rest of its cast. She also had tough words against the media and was also seen losing her language for it.

In the 1970s, Amitabh Bachchan and the media shared an icy relationship which thawed only about a decade later. And, obviously, it didn't go down very smoothly since Kangana called him out for his deeds.

The film Judgmentall Hai Kya is slated to release on July 26.
