After the Judgemental Hai Kya got into a heated argument with a media person on July 7 at the film’s event, a lot has transpired. While the actress’s sister has been bashing media on Twitter, it was said that the lady in discussion would be boycotted if an apology was not rendered. In order to condemn this behaviour and take serious action, an Entertainment Journalists Guild has also been formed. Yesterday (July 9) some members from the guild met Judgemental Hai Kya producer Ekta Kapoor with a letter to Balaji Telefilms asking for an apology from them and the actress as well.
And as per latest developments, today (July 10), the production house has come forward and issued a statement rendering an apology for whatever happened at event. The makers have also requested the media to not let the issue eclipse their film as it is a team effort that has gone in making this film. Read the full statement below:
To whomsoever it may concern:
A lot is being reported about the debate that ensued between our film JudgeMentall Hai Kya’s actor and journalist Justin Rao, at the film’s song launch event on July 7th, 2019. Unfortunately, the event took an unpleasant turn.
While the people involved in it fairly held their own perspectives but because it happened at the event of our film, we, as the producers, would like to apologize and express regret for this untoward incident.
We would like to maintain that our intention was not to disrespect or hurt anyone’s sentiments.
Our film JudgeMentall Hai Kya releases on July 26th and we urge the media to not let this one incident hamper the team effort that has gone behind making the film.
The film also stars Rajkummar Rao in the lead role. For more updates and gossip, stay tuned to CineBlitz.
