The name Kangana Ranaut has become synonymous to controversy. They seem to meet at every crossroad and come up with something new to lead the chart of celebrity gossips.
But with the ‘JudgeMentall Hai Kya’ actor getting into a verbal spat with a journalist, this mudslinging is not going to end soon.
After the media fraternity demanded an apology from Kangana, Ekta Kapoor and the makers issued a statement apologizing for the entire incident.

However, Kangana’s sister and manager Rangoli had earlier stated that Kangana won’t apologise at any cost.
Ek baat ka main vaada karti hoon, Kangana se apology toh nahin milegi, in bikau, nange, deshdrohi, desh ke dalal, libtard mediawalon ko, magar woh tumko dho dho kar sidha zaroor karegi … just wait and watch, tumne galat insaan se maafi mangi hai … 🙏 pic.twitter.com/gm8UvupO3S

After which the Entertainment Journalists’ Guild of India decided to not give her any media coverage.

But the Gangster star took to social media to further insult journalists in the country. In a 4-minute-video released by Kangana’s social media team, she was seen cynically attacking a particular section of the media and labelling them as ‘Doguli’ and ‘Bikaau’.
She says. “ek section of media jo hamare desh mein deemak, uski garima, uski smita ko, uske integrity ko aaye din attack karta rehta hai. Gande-Bhadde Deshdrohita ke vichaar rakhte hain… unke khilaaf hamare constitution mein… naa hi koi penalty hai na koi saza hai. Is chees se mujhe bohot thes pohochi hai, aur maine apne aap mein decide kar liya hai ki Ye jo Doguli media, Bikaao media, jo apne aap ko liberal, secular kehti hain.. 10th fail bhi nai hai bilkul… Ye log Pseudo liberals hain. Dharmik cheezo ko lekar desh ki ekta pe prahaar karte hain.
She went on saying that, “Arey, nalaayko, deshdrohiyo, bikao, tum logo ko khareedne ke liye laakho bhi nai chahiye, tum log to itne saste ho ki 50-60 rs mein bik jaate ho. Tum logo ke baap-dadao ko bhi maine lohe ke chane chabaye hain. Tum jaise nalayak mujhe barbaad karoge? Tum jaise sadde hue pseudo journalist ki chalti hoti, to aaj main India ki highest paid actress nai hoti. Main haath jod karke ye bolti hoon ki mujhe please ban karo. Kyunki main nai chahti ki meri wajah se tum logo ke ghar mein chulaa jale. Is se bada ehsaan aap mujhpe nai kar sakte.”
Kangana is known for not mincing her words and saying what she feels right. But we definitely don’t know how this kind of haughtiness will go with media and her fans alike.
With the movie scheduled to be released on 26th July, we hope producer Ekta Kapoor is preparing for the worst, just in case!
