Kangana Ranaut, who has been vocal on the issue of drug abuse in the film industry, wrote on Twitter, “Jaya ji, you would say the same thing if I were beaten, drugged and molested by your daughter Shweta as a teenager, What happens then? ” You say the same thing if Abhishek constantly complained about bullying and harassment and was able to hang one day? Show compassion for us also ”
During the monsoon session of Parliament on Tuesday, Jaya Bachchan overshadowed fellow actor-turned-politician Ravi Kishan over his remarks on the use of drugs in the film industry.
“I was really embarrassed and ashamed that yesterday (14 September) I spoke to one of our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the industry. I’m not taking names. It is a shame, ”said Jaya.
Stating that the entertainment industry has always come forward to help in times of national crisis, Jaya Bachchan urged the government to support the fraternity. “People earning a name in this industry have called it a drain. I completely disagree and I really disagree. At a time when the financial situation is in a dismal state and the employment rate at the worst levels, we are being instigated by social media to divert people’s attention and the government has no support. “
The Bollywood veteran said, “I think it is very important that the government should support this industry and not kill it. Just because there are few people, you cannot tarnish the image of the entire industry.”

Ravi Kishan in his Lok Sabha speech on Monday referred to the ongoing Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) investigation in Sushant Singh Rajput death case.
Kishan said in Parliament, “Drug addiction is also in the film industry. Many people have been caught. NCB is doing very well. I urge the Central Government to take strict action against the culprits at the earliest. Punish them and punish them and put an end to this conspiracy by neighboring countries. “
After Jaya’s fiery attack, Ravi Kishan told ANI, “I hoped Jaya ji would support what I said.” Not everyone in the industry consumes drugs but those who do are part of the plan to eliminate the world’s largest film industry. When Jaya ji and I joined, the situation was not like this, but now we need to protect the industry. “
