Actor Kangana Ranaut accused a journalist of starting a ‘smear campaign’ against her by misquoting her on social media during the release of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The journalist, however, retorted back by denying her claims and asked her to share any proof to justify what she was saying. It all happened at the song launch of Judgementall Hai Kya in the presence of Rajkumar Rao and Ekta Kapoor.
Kangana accused the journalist of bashing her film Manikarnika. The man then told Kangana to speak with proof. He said, ‘you cannot intimidate a journalist because you are in a powerful position here’. At which point, the anchor interrupted the conversation and got a piece of mind from the rest of the journalists who asked him to not speak in between and insult them when a discussion is already happening.
Later, Kangana further said that he messaged her and the journalist kept his stand that he never did and even asked her for the screenshots. She further accused him of twisting her statements and concluded by stating that she will not answer his question. The journalist even asked Kangana of proof of the messages which she said she will share later.
