A few days back, Kangana Ranaut unveiled the first song from her film ‘Judgementall Hai Kya.’ During the event, she accused a journalist of running a smear campaign against her and her movies. The two then got involved in a verbal spat, but matters did not end there.
Ranaut did not clear her stance there, and the matter has been taken forward from each side, reports DNA India. Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel shared screenshots of the reporter’s posts where he supposedly ran a smear campaign. On the other hand, the journalists too have set up a committee.
Senior journalists from the committee have already met Ekta Kapoor, producer of ‘Judgementall Hai Kya,’ who was also present at the song launch. The committee released an official statement:
“To all the entertainment journalists a body, Entertainment Journalists Guild of India has been formed, in the light of the unfortunate incident that happened with reporter Justin Rao from PTI, on July 7 at promotional event of Judgementall Hai Kya.
The body has been formed to safeguard the interests of our fraternity and address issues that entertainment journalists face on a daily basis be it with actors or producers or PR. It is time for us to stand united to support our fellow members.”
