Entertainment Journalists Guild to boycott Kangana Ranaut over accusing a reporter of running smear campaign

On July 7, the actress had accused PTI journalist, Justin Rao of running a “smear campaign” against her for her film Manikarnika. She made the claim just as Rao was starting to ask her a question during a media interaction. Ranaut’s remarks led to a heated argument between the two.

Despite spending three hours with her in her vanity van and having lunch with her, Kangana has claimed that the reporter “harmed” her brand. She said that the reporter had called her “jingoistic” in his articles. However, Rao had claimed that he met her briefly for about half-an hour for an interview, did not have lunch, and had not sent her any personal messages. Ranaut then accused Rao of making the argument about “star versus journalist”.

Post which the Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India decided to boycott Kangana Ranaut, and not give her any media coverage. They wrote an open letter to Ekta Kapoor demanding an official statement condemning inappropriate actions of the actress.
