Ravi Kishan's speech highlighting the drugs connection in Bollywood has started to backfire him as the Hindi film industry has started to slam him. Speaking at the Lok Sabha, Ravi said the problem of drug trafficking/addiction is on a rise. Conspiracy is being hatched to destroy the country's youth, our neighboring countries are contributing. Smuggling of drugs from Pakistan and China is done every yr - it is brought via Punjab and Nepal.
Drug addiction is in the film industry too. Several people have been apprehended, NCB is doing very good work. I urge the central govt to take strict action, apprehend the culprits soon, give them befitting punishment & bring an end to the conspiracy of neighboring countries.
On Tuesday veteran actress Jaya Bachchan came down heavily upon BJP MP and actor-politician Ravi Kishan over his "drug addiction in the film industry" remarks in Parliament. In her speech, Jaya said that the Entertainment industry in our country provides direct employment to 5 lakhs, people, every day, and indirect employment to 5 million people. At a time when the financial condition of the country is in a depressing phase, in order to divert the attention of the people we are being used to be flogged by the social media and the government's non-support.
Anubhav Sinha also slammed Ravi Kishan and suggested him to focus on the Bhojpuri film industry. Slamming Ravi Kishan’s comments on Bollywood, Anubhav Sinha asked the actor to address the vulgarity in Bhojpuri cinema. He wrote, “बड़ा आभारी हूँ भाई @ravikishann का कि संसद में बॉलीवुड और नशे पर बात चीत की। थोड़ी बात भोजपुरी फ़िल्म इंडस्ट्री की भी करें। पिछले तीस साल से इस भाषा और उस कला के सीने पर नंगा नाच करके एक पूरी पीढ़ी में जो अश्लीलता का ज़हर घोला गया है उस पर भी बात होनी है। ज़िम्मेदार हैं वो।“ (I am grateful to Ravi Kishan that Bollywood and drug usage was discussed in the Parliament. There should also be discussion on the Bhojpuri industry - the language and art has been misused to feed the poison of vulgarity to an entire generation for past 30 years. That should also be discussed, he is responsible.)
