After the actor's public spat with an entertainment journalist during the launch of a song from her upcoming film Judgementall Hai Kya? a few days earlier, the Entertainment Journalists' Guild of India has decided to boycott the actress and "not give her any media coverage".

The body had asked the actor and the film's producer Ekta Kapoor to issue a public statement. The actor had accused the journalist of "running a smear campaign" against her. In latest development, Ekta Kapoor's production house BalajiMotionPictures (the banner under which the film has been produced) issued an apology on Wednesday. 

The statement read: "A lot is being reported about the debate that ensued between our film 'JudgeMentall Hai Kya' actor and a journalist, at the film's song launch event on July 7. 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 apologise and express regret for this untoward incident." Ekta tweeted this statement on her official page.

The incident occured during the launch of the "Wakhra Swag" song. The actor questioned the journalist about his negative remarks on her last film, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi.
