Veteran actress and Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday came down heavily upon BJP MP and actor-politician Ravi Kishan over his drug addiction in the film industry remarks in Parliament. She said that the image of the entire film fraternity cannot be tarnished due to some people.
Jaya Bachchan has given a Zero Hour notice to discuss the issue of the film industry being defamed. This comes amid the raging controversy over actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and the drug probe linked to his death.
Actress Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik Chakraborty and others have been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in connection with the case.
“Just because of a few people, you cannot tarnish the whole industry. I was ashamed yesterday that one of the members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the industry itself, spoke ill of the industry. Jis thaali me khaate hain usi me chched karte hain,” Jaya Bachchan said in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, referring to the BJP MP’s statement in Lok Sabha. On Monday Ravi had raised the issue of ‘drug mafia-bollywood’ nexus in the Parliament.
“Drug addiction is in the film industry too. Several people have been apprehended. The NCB has been doing very good work. I urge the central government to take strict action against the culprits soon. Give them a befitting punishment and bring an end to this conspiracy by neighbouring countries,” said Ravi Kishan
