Jaya Bachchan gives Zero Hour notice in Rajya Sabha over 'alleged conspiracy to defame the film industry'



Member of the Rajya Sabha, Samajwadi Party MP and veteran actress Jaya Bachchan hit back at actor-politician Ravi Kishan over his comments on drug addiction in the film industry. Mrs Bachchan said the film industry is being "vilified on social media'.

Kishan had brought up the topic of drug abuse in the film industry in the parliament on Monday, Kishan, who a BJP MP, had on Monday stated, "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," referring to the current NCB probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput case.

Hitting back at the Bhojpuri star, Jaya Bachchan said, "Just because of a few people, you cannot tarnish the whole industry... 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. Jis thaali me khaate hain usi me chched karte hain."

Kishan had also alleged a 'conspiracy' by Pakistan and China to destroy the country's younger citizens.

Mrs Bachchan urged the government to stand by the entertainment industry in this hour of crisis. "Entertainment industry is so important. But so many people who have made a name from this industry are today calling it a gutter. The industry is being vilified on social media. Some of the people in the industry are among the highest taxpayers of the country. The government must stand by the entertainment industry," she said.Text
