You've been running a smear-campaign against me, Kangana to journo
Notably, it started after Kangana slammed journalist Justin Rao during an event for his negative reviews for her movie, Manikarnika.
"You called me a jingoistic woman who's making a film on nationalism. You have been running a smear campaign against me," she alleged.
Rao was quick to retort, and said that she cannot make such accusations just because she's at a position of power.
