The letter also urged the unregistered "Entertainment Journalist Guild" organisation to make their stand against such issue and stop directly supporting and encouraging unprofessional journalists through such mediums.

Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Thursday launched an attack on "pseudo-journalists" and "traitors of the country" in a video statement shared by her manager and sister, Rangoli Chandel, on Twitter. They threatened to destroy my career. They demanded an apology from Kangana in lieu of her rude and unacceptable behaviour.

While Ekta Kapoor, the producer of the upcoming film, instantly issued a statement apologising for the incident, with her recent social media post, Kangana Ranaut has made it clear that she is not in a mood to apologise.

The Guild, comprising senior entertainment journalists in Mumbai, said it appreciated Kapoor's support but clarified the boycott on Ranaut would continue "across all media platforms".

The apology came on Wednesday with Balaji Telefilms elaborating on the "unpleasant turn". At the song launch of the event, she had a public spat with a journalist causing a lot of negative publicity to the film.

The production house also expressed the hope the media will not "let this one incident hamper the team effort that has gone behind making the film". She said, "A section of journalists are hurting the country's pride, integrity and equality like termites, by spreading false rumours and values of anti-national treachery". At the time of the release, Rao had asked Ranaut at a press conference about why the film was being released in Pakistan when Ranaut had criticised others for organising an event there. The journalist denied the allegations and the actor's claim that he personally messaged her and spent three hours in her vanity van. "They all sell out, yet there's no punishment for them inspite of them being a threat", she added.
