Entertainment Journalists' Guild to boycott Kangana Ranaut
They have demanded a public apology from the star following an ugly spat between her and a journalist
Members of the Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India (EJGI) have collectively decided to boycott Kangana Ranaut and have demanded a public apology from the star following an ugly spat between her and a journalist. The angry exchange took place during the audio launch of Kangana's upcoming film Judgementall Hai Kya, in the presence of producer Ekta Kapoor and actor Rajkummar Rao. The members sent a letter to Ekta, terming Kangana's behaviour "un-called for."
The letter reads: "We, the members of Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India, demand a written public statement from you, Balaji Films and Ms Ranaut, condemning the incident and in particular Ms Ranaut's behaviour. We as a guild, collectively decided to boycott Ms Ranaut and give any media coverage. Rest assured, we will not let this matter affect Judgementall Hai Kya in any manner and will be supportive of your film and other cast members, barring Ms Ranaut."
The Entertainment Journalists' Guild was formed post the incident that happened with the reporter on July 7 and is yet to be registered. The body will safeguard the interests of the journalists fraternity and address issues that entertainment journalists face on a daily basis - with actors, producers or publicist.
Judgementall Hai Kya is set to release on July 26.
