The Gloves Are Off: Hrithik Roshan Calls Kangana Ranaut a ‘Bully’

A bully enabled by media coverage.

Kangana Ranaut has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. And just recently over a spat with a journalist. Since then the journalist community has demanded an apology from the actress or else they’d boycott her film promotions.

Meanwhile, Kangana’s Judgemental Hai Kya has also brought her feud with Hrithik Roshan out of the woodworks.

Ekta Kapoor’s Judgmental Hai Kya and Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 were supposed to clash at the box office. The Kites actor chose to avoid the mess and rescheduled his film.

That didn’t stop him from saying a few things about Kangana. The Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum actor called her a ‘bully‘.

‘Kangana Ranaut is a Bully’

Hrithik Roshan made it clear that there’s no winning when it comes to dealing with bullies. You just have to stand up for yourself and not back down to pressure.

“I have come to realize that bullies have to be treated with a certain amount of patience, and not be engaged with.

It is upon the civil society and those who claim to be just and fair to see and observe if there is harassment.

Also, being who I am, if I choose to confront as per laws, I become the aggressor. If I withdraw from a film-clash that I know has been pre-designed, then I become a weakling penning a sob story. I have learned to not get affected by either.”

Media Is To Blame

He explained how all the media attention that Kangana got may have turned her into a bully to begin with. This behaviour isn’t the refreshing audacity we rooted for.

“Although, to be honest, my only grouse is with those supposedly ‘enlightened’ people who praise and often cheer this behaviour in the name of ‘new’ and ‘refreshing audacity’, without any desire to be rational or truthful.

They are the enablers who have allowed this circus to continue for six years,”

It seems like Hrithik is having none of it.

Media Not Backing Down

While Hrithik Roshan is may have dealt with Kangana’s bullying with patience, Indian journalists are not. Following Kangana’s spat with an Indian entertainment journalist, the media community was having none of it.

Kangana bashed a journalist for his negative review in a promotional event for Judgemental Hai Kya. The rest of the journalist community called her out for false accusations using her celebrity status to pressure and silence the journo.

Later in a meeting with Judgemental Hai Kya director Ekta Kapoor, the community demanded that Kangana Ranaut apologize for the baseless accusation and power play.

The fraternity also formed the Entertainment Journalists Guild of India (EJGI). Their goal is:

‘To safeguard the interests of the media fraternity and address issues that entertainment journalists face on a daily basis, be it with actors or producers or PR.’

An Apology Is Needed

If Ekta Kapoor apologizes, EJGI will promote Judgemental Hai Kya. If Kangana Ranaut does not apologize EJGI will not give her any media coverage.

“We, as a guild, have collectively decided to boycott Ms Ranaut and not give her any media coverage. Rest assured, we will not let this matter affect ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’ in any manner and will be supportive of your film and other cast members, barring Ms Ranaut.”

Entertainment Journalists Guild of India (EJGI) will boycott Kangana Ranaut

Kangana’s sister/manager Rangoli Chandel promised that the Queen star ‘will not apologize, and she’ll set the media straight‘.

Maybe this boycott will serve as a means to an end for not enabling a bully. Perhaps Hritik Roshan was on to something with his earlier remarks.
