Kangana Ranaut is in the news for all the wrong reasons… again. While her boldness and frankspeak has been often applauded, this time the narrative seems to be against her. Her fight against a journalist during the song release function for her next movie Judgementall Hai Kya has evoked strong reactions from fans and the journalistic community.
It began when a journalist Justin Rao started asking Kangana a question. Even before he could frame his sentence, Kangana let loose her complaints against him – accusing him of being biased against her and criticising her film Manikarnika. With the journalist standing his ground, it became a slanging match with producer Ekta Kapoor (who was also present) trying to make peace. Now, entertainment journalists have taken a strong stance against Kangana’s behaviour and her harsh tone and this may affect the fate of her film Judgementall Hai Kya that is set for release later this month.
A source very close to the film, petrified of being quoted on-record, says Kangana won’t relent. “She is unlikely to apologize, and the journalists at the event have asked for her apology. So it looks like a deadlock situation unless the Judgementall producer Ekta Kapoor plays peacemaker.”
This source says everyone on the crew of Judgementall Hai Kya was intimidated by Ms Ranaut. “No one stops her from doing what she wants to. They just let her do whatever she likes. No one can persuade Kangana to apologize to the media for her abrasive behaviour towards them.”
Regarding the apology demanded by journalists, this is what Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli tweeted: “Ek baat ka main vaada karti hoon, Kangana se apology toh nahin milegi, in bikau, nange, deshdrohi, desh ke dalal, libtard mediawalon ko, magar woh tumko dho dho kar sidha zaroor karegi ... just wait and watch, tumne galat insaan se maafi mangi hai...”

Of late Rangoli has been sparring with several stars, Taapsee Pannu and Anurag Kashyap being the latest.
