Kangana Ranaut who nowadays became a part of the controversy world in the Bollywood industry had recently got herself entwined into yet another controversy during the promotion of her upcoming film Judge Mental Hai Kya. This time when things got a little bit out of hand, Ekta Kapoor’s production house Balaji motion Pictures stepped in with issuing an apology on Wednesday. Actress Kangana Ranaut in the recent promotional press for her film “Judgementall Hai Kya” got herself involved in an ugly spat with a journalist.
This happened during the Wakhra song launch event on June 7 when Kangana Ranaut questioned the journalist’s negative remark on her last release “Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi”. Things went nasty after that as the members of the Entertainment Journalists’ Guild of India (EJGI) condemned Kangana’s behavior and decided collectively to boycott Kangana and even demanded for a public apology from the National award-winning actress. The Bombay Times tweeted “Senior journalists will meet #EktaKapoor to demand an apology from #KanganaRanaut for her behavior”.
On behalf of Ekta Kapoor, the Balaji statement requested the media “to not let this one incident hamper the team effort that has gone behind making the film”. The statement further mentioned, “A lot is being reported about the debate that ensued between our film ‘JudgeMentall Hai Kya’ actor and a journalist, at the film’s song launch event on July 7. Unfortunately, the event took an unpleasant turn. While the people involved in it fairly held their perspectives but because it happened at the event of our film, we, as the producers, would like to apologise and express regret for this untoward incident”. The Balaji statement concluded with, “We would like to maintain that our intention was not to disrespect or hurt anyone’s sentiments”. Talking about the film, the filmmakers had recently dropped the trailer of the film where people are stunned after seeing the mad act of Rajkumar Rao and Kangana Ranaut. JudgeMentall Hai Kya is comprised of both dark comedy and crime drama act featuring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkumar Rao in the lead roles.
