'I'm attacked for taking on B'wood biggies'
New Delhi: Bollywood's queen of controversies Kangana Ranaut on July 15, said her ugly outburst at a news agency journalist at an event in Mumbai last week happened because she was "fed up" with a section of journalists ganging up against her for speaking up against certain Bollywood biggies such as Hrithik Roshan and Karan Johar.
"If you are referring to the recent media incident, honestly, I noted that since I have raised my voice against certain Bollywood biggies – whether it is Hrithik Roshan, Karan Johar or any other – a lot of that Mumbai media has ganged up against me," Kangana said.
On Monday, even as most of the journalistic community continued to boycott her, Kangana seemed in the mood to hold an olive branch to the press. About losing her cool at last week's event, however, she continued to suggest that the media was to blame.
"A lot of nasty stories are reported everyday and that has been going on for the past two to three years. I was just so fed up. Everything that happened was just a reaction to that kind of pressure, because of all the maligning and smear campaign against me."
Her recent spat with the media community happened when, at the launch of the song, 'The Wakhra swag' last week, Kangana questioned a journalist over his negative remarks on her last release, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, which was released earlier this year.
