Ekta Kapoor may have apologised to the media for Kangana Ranaut's spat with a journalist during a press conference of her film 'Judgementall Hai Kya' but the actress seems to be in no mood to budge from her stand. 

In a two-part video that was posted on her sister Rangoli Chandel's Twitter account, Kangana accused a certain section of the media of being anti-national. 

Kangana reiterated that her spat with the journalist at the press conference was only because he had ridiculed her and given her film 'Manikarnika' bad press. 

In the two-part video, Kangana stated that she would not apologise to journalists, who she alleges, are a 'ganging up against her'  and are on sale for Rs 50-60.

Kangana Ranaut got into an ugly spat with a journalist during a press conference on Sunday that was held to promote her new film 'Judgementall Hai Kya'. The film co-stars Rajkummar Rao and is being produced by Ekta Kapoor. 

As the video of the spat went viral, an Entertainment Journalist Guild was formed which demanded an apology from Kangana or else she would face a boycott from the press. 

On Wednesday Ekta Kapoor, the film's producer issued an apology and urged media to cover her film. 

But the Guild has stated that it would not budge from its stand despite Kapoor's apology.  "We appreciate the gesture shown by Ekta Kapoor on account of tendering the apology to the Entertainment Journalists Guild and we duly acknowledge her statement. The subject was discussed in the committee meeting of Entertainment Journalists Guild and it was unanimously decided that Entertainment Journalists Guild shall continue to extend its support to the film - JudgeMentall Hai Kya? However, the restraint of Kangana Ranaut in the form of this fraternity initiated boycott will still persist until a formal apology has been extended by Kangana Ranaut," read the statement issued by Entertainment Journalists Guild.

'Judgementall Hai Kya'  is scheduled to release on July 26.
