Judgementall Hai Kya event: Kangana Ranaut gets into a verbal tiff with a journalist for writing negative reviews about ‘Manikarnika’.
It would not be wrong to say that Kangana Ranaut and controversies go hand-in-hand. On Sunday, at the song launch event of her upcoming film Judgementall Hai Kya, the actress once again landed into yet another controversy as she accused a journalist of launching a ‘smear campaign’ against her by misquoting her on social media during the release of her last film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The journalist, however, dismissed her claims and asked her for proof.
In presence of co-actor Rajkummar Rao and producer Ekta Kapoor, when the journalist asked Kangana a question, she retorted by saying, “Tum toh mere dushman bann gaye… badi ghatiya baatein likha rahe ho. Kitni zyada gandi baati likh rahe ho, itna ganda sochte kaise ho?” To which the journalist replied by saying that he is only writing the truth and told Kangana that it’s not fair to say such things to him at this platform. As Kangana further accused him of bashing Manikarnika, the journalist was quick to respond, “You cannot intimidate a journalist because you are in a powerful position here.” At that point, the anchor interrupted the conversation but the rest of the journalists present there asked him to not speak in between a discussion.
See for yourself:
Well, it did not end there. The actress went on to allege that the journalist had come to meet her in her van and they had lunch together. She pointed out, “You spent at least three hours in my van and we had lunch together.” The journalist, on the other hand, clarified, “I never spoke to you for three hours in your van. We did an interview but that was scheduled by your PR. This is not done. I interviewed you for just half an hour and we did not have lunch. I never messaged you. I just did my job.” But Kangana kept insisting, “You did message me.” Hearing this, the journalist made a request her to share the screenshots of the message. Although the actress said that she didn’t think that was the right place to do that, she claimed that the journalist had twisted her statements to ‘harm her brand’.
Helmed by Prakash Kovelamudi, Judgementall Hai Kya is slated to release on July 26.
