Kapoor, who is producing Ranaut's upcoming film Judgemental Hai Kya, agreed to issue the apology and expressed regret over Sunday's incident, which has prompted a backlash against the star on social media, the journalists said.
"We, as a guild, have collectively decided to boycott Ms. Ranaut and not give her any media coverage," the delegation said in its letter to Kapoor, adding that the boycott will not affect the film or the rest of the cast.
Journalists conveyed to the producer that they have decided to "boycott" Ranaut from future events until the actor apologizes for Sunday's incident.
The members said in the letter that Ranaut had lashed out at PTI journalist Justin Rao even before he could complete the question that he was asking at the press conference to promote the film on the pretext that he was running a "smear campaign" against her.
