Hema Malini has come out in support of Jaya Bachchan’s statement in the Parliament, and has slammed Kangana Ranaut’s claims of Bollywood drug mafia. Kangana had alleged that 99% of the film industry was exposed to drugs.
Jaya Bachchan ,Samajwadi Party MP and veteran actor, has called out Hindi-Bhojpuri actor and BJP MP Ravi Kishan over his ‘drug addiction’ comment in Lok Sabha yesterday. Yesterday, on day two of the monsoon session, Jaya Bachchan called Kishan’s statement a ‘shame’ as he, too, belongs to the industry and added that an act by few celebs cannot sabotage the entire industry’s image. Speaking in Rajya Sabha, Jaya Bachchan said, “Just because there are some people, you can’t tarnish the image of the entire industry. I am ashamed that yesterday one of our members in Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it. It is a shame.”
Now, Hema Malini has come out in support of Jaya Bachchan’s statement in the Parliament, and has slammed Kangana Ranaut’s claims of Bollywood drug mafia. Kangana had alleged that 99% of the film industry was exposed to drugs.
Hema Malini, while speaking to NDTV about the allegations of drug usage in Bollywood, questioned why only one industry is being targeted when there are so many
industries out there in which these things are prevalent and that it is happening worldwide everywhere. “Must have happened in our industry also, that doesn’t mean the entire industry is bad. The way in which people are targeting Bollywood is bad. It is not like that at all,” she said.
Jaya Bachchan’s speech was backed by many Bollywood celebs including Taapsee Pannu, Anubhav Sinha, Richa Chadha among others.
