Actress Kangana Ranaut has refused to apologise for accusing a journalist of running a ‘smear campaign’ against her.
In a two-part video message posted on her sister Rangoli Chandel’s Twitter, Kangana reiterated her allegation that the journalist had ridiculed and given her film Manikarnika bad press.
On Sunday, a film event she was at spiralled into an ugly argument with journalist Justin Rao who attempted to ask Kangana a question.
A journalists body has demanded that the actress apologise, failing which she would receive no media coverage.
In these two tweets, Kangana Ranaut says she won’t apologise to journalists who, she claims, are ‘ganging up’ against her and who are ‘on sale for Rs. 60.’ Some journalists, she said, have helped her in her journey up the ranks of Bollywood – but not these journalists.
Yesterday, Ekta Kapoor, who produces the new film posted an apology for the ‘untoward incident’ .
