The tussle between Kangana Ranaut and the media is still on. It started off when the actress had a war of words with a journalist during the ‘The Wakhra Song’ launch from her upcoming movie Judgemental Hai Kya.

At the trailer launch of his keenly awaited film Mission Mangal, Akshay Kumar was asked about the issue. “Sidharth [Malhotra] had put it very well, so I will repeat the same," he said. "The relation between the media and an actor is very deep; like husband and wife. There will always be some nok-jhonk [tussle]. I just hope that it gets resolved because we need you [media] a lot.”

Further speaking on the importance of the media for an actor, Akshay Kumar said, “It is only through you that whatever I have to say reaches the people and vice-versa. So I hope this little nok-jhonk gets solved. I don’t know much about this as I was in London for 20 days. It’s very unfortunate, but I hope everything gets solved.”

Mission Mangal is set to be released on 15 August. The film will clash with the John Abraham-starrer Batla House.
