On July 7, during a press event organised for her upcoming film 'Judgementall Hai Kya', the actor lambasted a reporter for writing "dirty things" about her film 'Manikarnika', which marked her directorial debut.
Following this, the Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India boycotted the actor and denied giving her media coverage.
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.
In the video, which is shared in two parts, the actor slammed a 'certain section of media' calling them anti-national and sold-out.
"You think incompetent, rotten, pseudo-journalists like you can harm my status? Arey, nalaayko, deshdrohiyo, bikau, tum logo ko khareedne ke liye laakho bhi nai chahiye, tum log to itne saste ho ki Rs 50, 60 mein bik jaate ho. (I can buy inefficient, sold out, anti national journalists like you in less Rs 50-60)," she asserted in the video.
She concluded the video by thanking her fans and supporters who stuck by her side during the release of 'Manikarnika' while 'movie mafias' were standing against it.
Meanwhile, singer Sona Mohapatra came out and slammed Ranaut for 'becoming the monster she destroyed'. While the 43-year-old hailed her at first for fighting any form of oppression, she lashed out at the 'Gangster' actress for learning from the bullies. She concluded by hoping for the actress's recovery.

The 'Rangabati' singer also responded to Chandel's tweet in support of 'Kabir Singh' director, Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Mohapatra asserted that Chandel sounds 'deranged' and needs to rethink what she writes.
