Ekta Kapoor's apology accepted but ban on Kangana Ranaut will continue

After Kangana Ranaut Boycott, Ekta Kapoor Apologises For 'Untoward Incident'

After Kangana Ranaut's ugly spat with a journalist at the song launch of Judgementall Hai Kya, the Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India has chose to boycott Kangana Ranaut. In a statement, the production house said it would like to apologise as the "untoward incident" happened at their event on Sunday. Unfortunately, the event took an unpleasant turn.

On Sunday, an event to launch a song from JudgeMentall Hai Kya? spiralled into a messy exchange of recriminations when journalist Justin Rao attempted to direct a question to Kangana Ranaut.

A delegation from the Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India warned producer Ekta Kapoor that they would be boycotting the actress in the aftermath of her heated argument with an entertainment journalist at a press conference for her upcoming release Judgemental Hai Kya, reported news agency PTI. "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", it said. The journalist denied the allegations and said that there was no reason for him to do such thing against her. Kangana said that she was not intimidating anyone and that she was just being candid.

Now, the Entertainment Journalist Guild has issued a public statement appreciating producer Ekta Kapoor's apology for standing with what is right with her official statement. Rao, however, claimed that he met Ranaut briefly for an interview, did not have lunch, and had not sent her any personal messages. But far from pacifying people, her apology letter left many incensed as they slammed the filmmaker for omitting Kangana's name. "We as a guild, collectively chose to boycott Ms Ranaut and give any media coverage".

Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel, who functions as the actress' manager, tweeted in a typically confrontational post that no apology would be forthcoming: "Ek baat ka main vaada karti hoon, Kangana se apology nahin milegi, in bikau, nange, deshdrohi, desh ke dalal, libtard mediawalon ko".
