Recently, Kangana Ranaut gets into a heated argument with a journalist during the song launch of their film JudgeMentall Hai Kya.
During the media interaction, Kangana accused the journalist of calling her a jingoistic person and bashing her film ‘Manikarnika’ on social media.
Now, Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra who attended the ‘Zilla Hilela’ song launch form their upcoming film ‘Jabariya Jodi’ were recently asked about the incident.
To this, Sidharth said his relationship with media was one of “mutual love and respect”.

“Media and an actors’ relationship sometimes seems to be like that of a couple who fight and get angry. Things shouldn’t be taken personally, you are here doing your work and the same goes for us,” he said.
“When we call you to attend an event, we have no intentions of misbehaving with you,” he added while addressing a question raised by a journalist.
The actor revealed that he himself is friends with a number of people from the media fraternity. “I sometimes do not care about things much. There’s been a lot written about my films a lot of times and I think it is media’s professional opinion. It won’t affect my hard work, my next film so I see it this way,” the actor added.
Parineeti, on the other hand, said, “We have known the members of media for so many years, so there is a weird sort of friendship between us. But when we do interviews, that friendship should not be misunderstood. It happens that we are sometimes misquoted. On other occasions, media gets misconstrued. So we need to keep it as professional as possible because many reputations are at stake. I think we need to be responsible.”
