July 10, 2019 | 12:00 IST | CineBuzz |

The film JudgeMentall Hai Kya has come under fire due to the recent feud between Kangana Ranaut and journalist Justin Rao. At the recent song launch of the film, the actress got involved in a verbal spat with the journalist stating that he criticized her film Manikarnika – The Queen Of Jhansi and accused him of running a smear campaign against her. A delegation from the Entertainment Journalists’ Guild of India told producer Ekta Kapoor that they would be boycotting the actress.

The delegation also demanded that both Ms. Ranaut and Ms. Kapoor apologize. Ekta Kapoor, who produces Kangana Ranaut’s new film, said she would issue an apology and that she regretted the altercation that took place at an event to launch a song from the film last Sunday in Mumbai. However, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel, also her manager, has roundly rejected the possibility of an apology from the actress. The entertainment guild has decided to not give the actress any media coverage. The boycott However will not affect the film or the rest of the cast, which includes actor Rajkummar Rao.

Kangana Ranaut, the letter says, will not be given any media coverage until she apologizes for accusing journalist Justin Rao of running a ‘smear campaign’ against her. The film has also steered through a lot of controversies after the film was supposed to clash with Hrithik Roshan’s Suoer 30 at the box office. Hrithik Roshan averted a potentially incendiary collision at the box office by voluntarily bringing forward the release of his film. The original title of the film was changed from Mental Hai Kya after criticism. JudgeMentall Hai Kya starring Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao is set to release on July 26, 2019.
