The controversy surrounding Kangana Ranaut‘s latest flick ‘JudgeMental Hai Kya‘ continues to rage. After a spat with a journalist during the press conference to release the movie’s song Wakhra Swag, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel has released a series of videos. Kangana Ranaut starts the video thanking her friends and advisors in the media who have helped her grow in Bollywood. Kangana added that they have contributed to her success. Quickly moving on, Kangana said that “some people keep on attacking the country for no reason”.

“They keep on spreading rumours and present their anti-national thoughts openly and we can not do anything against them constitutionally. There is no penalty or punishment for them. I felt strongly about it and I decided not to entertain this section,” Kangana said.

Coming to her spat with a journalist during Wakhra Swag song release press conference, Kangana said, “Some journalists ridicule serious issues and cause like on world environment day I campaigned with Isha Yoga Center to ban plastic. This journalist ridiculed it. Then I was voicing my opinion against animal cruelty, he was ridiculing that as well. I made a movie on martyr, he ridiculed its name as well.”

Kangana went on to say that it is to be noticed that they don’t have any argument or ability for critical analysis which a journalist should have.

On Entertainment Journalists Guild’s ban on her, Kangana Ranaut said, “Since I refused to reply to an anti-national’s questions these people have formed a guild against me which is formed yesterday only. It has no recognition. This guild is threatening me that they will ban me.”

Addressing them, Kangana said that I want to tell them that I have tackled bigger threats. If people like these had their way I would not have got this success as the country’s top and highest-paid actress.

“With folded hands, I want to tell them that try and ban me, this would be a great favour to me, please ban me,” she said.

Recently during the launch of Wakhra Swag song from her upcoming Movie JudgeMental Hai Kya with Rajkummar Rao, Kangana Ranaut turned down answering a journalist’s question and that led to an argument. Film’s producer Ekta Kapoor has issued an apology.

According to media reports, the Entertainment Journalists Guild appreciated Ekta Kapoor but said that her “apology would not alter the ban”.

Entertainment Journalists Guild in a statement said, “We appreciate the gesture shown by Ekta Kapoor on account of tendering the apology to the Entertainment Journalists Guild and we duly acknowledge her statement. The subject was discussed in the committee meeting of Entertainment Journalists Guild and it was unanimously decided that Entertainment Journalists Guild shall continue to extend its support to the film – JudgeMentall Hai Kya? However the restraint of Kangana Ranaut in the form of this fraternity initiated boycott will still persist until a formal apology has been extended by Kangana Ranaut.”
