She implied that the actor was drilling holes in the very plate he eats from after Kishan said that drug addiction persisted in the film industry in the parliament yesterday. She said this in the upper house during the Winter Session in 2019.
In the aftermath of actor Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic death, many came forward to allege issues of nepotism, bullying and even drug abuse in Bollywood.
Through a Zero Hour mention in Rajya Sabha, Bachchan said the entertainment industry was being flogged by social media and asked the government to protect and support it. People who made their name in the industry have called it a gutter.
Kangana had on an earlier occasion called the film industry a "gutter" claiming that 99 per cent of the people associated with it had been exposed to drugs.
Jaya Bachchan also lashed out at people who were from the film industry but were calling it a 'gutter'. "The government must support it and not kill it", she said, adding, "Just because there are a few people (doing bad things), you can not tarnish the image of the entire industry". "It is a shame", she said. 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.
The problem of drug trafficking is on the rise, Ravi Kishan said in Lok Sabha, which is meeting for the first session in the shadow of the coronavirus. He had added that drug addiction is prevalent in the film industry and lauded the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for its good work in apprehending several people. I urge the central government to take strict action against the culprits soon. "I am just a son of a priest who crawled his way up and has worked in 600 films", Kishan said while speaking to ANI.
"I need protection, the industry needs the protection and support of the government", she added.
The CBI is now investigating the circumstances that led to the young actor's sudden death.
The recent barbs between the film fraternity has sharpened since the death of Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14, and Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut's continued vitriolic verbal attacks on her colleagues in the industry.
