Balaji Telefilms head Ekta Kapoor has issued apology a day after the Entertainment media guild threatened to boycott Kangana Ranaut. In a statement shared on social media, Ekta Kapoor wrote, “While the people involved in (the argument) fairly held their own perspectives but because it happened at the event of our film, we, as the producers would like to apologize and express regret for this untoward incident.” She also pleaded with the media to ‘not let this one incident hamper the team effort that has gone’ into the film.
“We, as a guild, have collectively decided to boycott Ms Ranaut and not give her any media coverage.” The boycott will not affect the film or the rest of the cast, which includes actor Rajkummar Rao, the letter said.
The incident snowballed at the song launch event from JudgeMentall Hai Kya when journalist Justin Rao shooted questin at Kangana but the latter denied answering his question and shot back at home for running a smear campaign against her.
Meanwhile, Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel had earlier tweeted in a sarcastic way, “Ek baat ka main vaada karti hoon, Kangana se apology nahin milegi, in bikau, nange, deshdrohi, desh ke dalal, libtard mediawalon ko. Magar who tumko dho dho kar sidha zaroor karegi. Just wait and watch, tumne galat insan se maafi mangi hai”. The film also starring Rajkummar Rao will release on July 26.
