The heated exchange took place late on Sunday during the song launch of upcoming film JudgeMentall Hai Kya, in the presence of producer Ekta Kapoor and actor Rajkummar Rao.

Production company Balaji Telefilms on Wednesday apologised a day after the Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India threatened to boycott actor Kangana Ranaut following her argument with a reporter at a promotional event for her upcoming film Judgmentall Hai Kya on Sunday.

Ranaut had also accused Rao of writing negatively about her film Manikarnika.

It reads, "A lot is being reported about the debate that ensued between our film JudgeMentall Hai Kya's actor and journalist Justin Rao, at the film's song launch event on July 7th, 2019".

The journalist denied the allegations and the actor's claim that he personally messaged her and spent three hours in her vanity van. Ekta Kapoor issued a press statement asking an apology for the untoward incident and requested the media to understand that making a movie is a team effort. "You called me a jingoistic woman who is making a film on nationalism", the "Queen" actor said, refusing to entertain any question from the journalist.

Now, the Entertainment Journalist Guild has issued a public statement appreciating producer Ekta Kapoor's apology for standing with what is right with her official statement. But far from pacifying people, her apology letter left many incensed as they slammed the filmmaker for omitting Kangana's name. Rest assured, we will not let this matter affect "Judgementall Hai Kya' in any manner and will be supportive of your film and other cast members, barring Ms Ranaut", the letter said. "See this unruly behaviour of Kangana Ranaut clearly misusing her position to intimidate and falsely accuse the journalist", wrote another user.

After Kangana's spat with the journalist, her sister Rangoli Chandel had said on Twitter that Kangana will never apologise to the media and instead termed them as anti-nationals.

"We are here to discuss if you can support our cause and how we can support your film "Judgementall Hai Kya", in return".
