Kangana Ranaut and controversies go hand-in-hand it seems! At the song launch event of her upcoming film 'Judgementall Hai Kya', Kangana Ranaut got into a heated argument with a journalist.
The actress bashed and accused the journalist for writing negative comments about her film 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi." It all started when the journalist from PTI (Press Trust of India) introduced himself to ask a question and the next moment Kangana fired him by saying: "Tum to hamare dushman ban gaye ho, kitni zyada gandi gandi baatein karte ho, itna ganda sochte kaise ho." To this, the reporter answered back saying, "I only write the truth. I don't think it is fair to say that." Kangana retaliated by saying: "Is it fair for you to write that?" Post this, the reported asked her to give an example of what wrong has he written but Kangana was quiet and later said: "You are bashing my film Manikarnika, have I made a mistake by making a film? You are calling me a jingoistic person for making a film on nationalism. You have been running a smear campaign against me."
The reporter also said that it was wrong of her to accuse him, "You cannot intimidate a journalist just because you are at a power position here."
Kangana replied by saying: "I am not intimidating anyone. I am only being candid." She refused to answer any questions from the PTI reporter and said: "You are harming my brand and twisting things that I say." The reporter kept clarifying that "I cannot harm anyone's brand with 600 followers on my Twitter handle. I am inconsequential."
The reporter in a dignified way replied that he has not tweeted anything of what Kangana accused him of. The argument only escalated from there and Kangana made further allegations at the reporter. Other media personnel, Ekta Kapoor, Ruchika Kapoor, the host, present at the event also got involved in the argument and the matter got worse in no time.
