Actress Kangana Ranaut has been asked to tender a public apology by the media fraternity in the wake of her recent ugly spat with a wire service journalist at a press event of her forthcoming film JUDGEMENTAL HAI KYA.
The incident occurred when Kangana Ranaut questioned the journalist's negative comments on her last release, MANIKARNIKA: THE QUEEN OF JHANSI.
A heated exchange followed, setting off a debate on social media, leaving netizens divided over whether the actress's behaviour was right.
Condemning Kangana Ranaut's behaviour towards the journalist, a section of social media users asked the media to "boycott" her.
"Sick mindset. If this doesn't deserve an apology now, then Bollywood media should boycott Kangana Ranaut," a user tweeted.
"See this unruly behaviour of Kangana Ranaut clearly misusing her position to intimidate and falsely accuse the journalist," wrote another user.
According to reports, some senior journalists are scheduled to meet producer Ekta Kapoor of JUDGEMENTAL HAI KYA on Tuesday, seeking Kangana's apology over the issue.
However Kangana's sister Rangoli Chandel took to twiiter and stated that her sister would not ask for her apology. Her post read, "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 … ??"
