Bollywood veteran actress Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday sparked a new controversy when she brought the issue of conspiracy to defame the Hindi film industry is going on. Jaya gave a Zero Hour notice to discuss the issue of the film industry being defamed.
In a veiled attack on Kangana Ranaut, Jaya said that people who have made their names in the film industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree and disassociate from it and I hope the government tells these who have made their earning, name, and fame in the industry to stop using such language. There are people in the industry who are some highest taxpayers, they are still being harassed, all kinds of promises are being made to the film industry that has never been kept.
Cashing upon this, Shiv Sena Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Raut said that the Bollywood industry is having an international reputation. It is not right to malign the whole industry. It is compared to Hollywood. No other film industry is compared to Hollywood. It is quite a big thing. Whatever Jaya Bacchan has said that is a clear message from a family who has been a flag-bearer of Bollywood from the start.
After Jaya defended Bollywood and slammed the actress Kangana asked the veteran actress, " "Jaya ji would you say the same thing if in my place it was your daughter Shweta beaten, drugged and molested as a teenage, would you say the same thing if Abhieshek complained about bullying and harassment constantly and found hanging one day? Show compassion for us also."
