Jaya And Kangana Slug It Out Over Drugs, Vices In Filmdom

Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday, without naming BJP MP Ravi Kishan and cine star Kangana Ranaut, stated that she was “ashamed that one of our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it (Bollywood).”

Just because of a few people, you cannot tarnish the whole industry… I was really embarrassed and ashamed that yesterday one our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the industry, spoke against the film industry. Jis thaali me khaate hain usi me chched karte hain,” Ms Bachchan, a Samajwadi Party member, said in Rajya Sabha.

“People in the entertainment industry are being flogged by social media. People who made their name in the industry have called it a gutter,” she said, taking an unnamed swipe at Kangana.

While Ravi Kishan was sombre in his reply to Bachchan’s argument, Kangana retorted strongly via Twitter. She hit back at the Rajya Sabha MP for her latest remark on Bollywood and questioned would she say the same things if it was her daughter Shweta Bachchan or son Abhishek Bachchan who was affected.

Earlier in the morning, Jaya in a veiled manner criticised the ‘Panga’ actor in the Upper House for comparing the film industry to a ‘gutter’.

“Jaya ji would you say the same thing if in my place it was your daughter Shweta beaten, drugged and molested as a teenager, would you say the same thing if Abhishek complained about bullying and harassment constantly and found hanging one day? Show compassion for us also,” Ranaut tweeted.

“Like a famous choreographer once said ‘so what if we have raped, we have provided them livelihood’ (in Hindi) is that what you implying? There are no proper HR departments in production houses where women can complain, no safety or insurances for those who risk their lives every day, no 8 hours shift regulations,” she said in another tweet.

In a different tweet, Ranaut stated that there is a dire need to change the mentality from “food is enough for the poor” to “respect is also required along with the food to the poor” and added that she has a full list of reforms that she wanted from the centre government for workers and junior artists.
