Ekta Kapoor wrote, "Because it happened at the event of our film, we, as the producers would like to apologize for this untoward incident."
Balaji Telefilms head Ekta Kapoor has posted an apology after an altercation between Kangana Ranaut, star of Ekta's new film JudgeMentall Hai Kya?, and a journalist snowballed into an ugly controversy. In a statement shared on social media, Ekta Kapoor wrote, "While the people involved in (the argument) fairly held their own perspectives but because it happened at the event of our film, we, as the producers would like to apologize and express regret for this untoward incident." She also pleaded with the media to 'not let this one incident hamper the team effort that has gone' into the film.
Yesterday, a delegation from Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India told Ekta Kapoor that Kangana Ranaut would receive no media coverage until she apologises - the actress' sister has tweeted that an apology from Kangana is out of the question.
On Sunday, an event to launch a song from JudgeMentall Hai Kya? spiralled into a messy exchange of recriminations when journalist Justin Rao attempted to direct a question to Kangana Ranaut.
In a letter written to Ekta Kapoor yesterday, the journalists body wrote: "We, as a guild, have collectively decided to boycott Ms Ranaut and not give her any media coverage." The boycott will not affect the film or the rest of the cast, which includes actor Rajkummar Rao, the letter said.
Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel, who functions as the actress' manager, tweeted in a typically confrontational post that no apology would be forthcoming: "Ek baat ka main vaada karti hoon, Kangana se apology nahin milegi, in bikau, nange, deshdrohi, desh ke dalal, libtard mediawalon ko. Magar who tumko dho dho kar sidha zaroor karegi. Just wait and watch, tumne galat insan se maafi mangi hai," she wrote - I promise Kangana won't apologise, you have asked the wrong person for an apology.
udgeMentall Hai Kya? has been mired in controversy for weeks; a potentially incendiary box office clash with Hrithik Roshan's Super 30 was averted when he voluntarily rescheduled the release of film and then, the original title was changed from Mental Hai Kya after widespread criticism.
