Bollywood actresses Jaya Prada and Jaya Bachchan have come face to face this time. In the past, BJP MP Ravi Kishan had said in the Lok Sabha that the central government should take strong action on the drug culture spread in Bollywood. After knowing this, SP MP Jaya Bachchan had said that action should be taken against the culprits but the entire Bollywood industry should not be discredited.
I completely support Ravi Kishan ji's remarks about saving youth from the problem of drug trafficking/addiction। We need to raise our voice against the use of drugs & we need to save our youth। I think Jaya Bachchan ji is doing politics over the issue: Jaya Prada, BJP— ANI (@ANI)
Since then, the entire Bollywood industry has been divided into different groups. There are many people who are against Jaya, so there are many people who are supporting her. Now, BJP MP Jaya Prada's statement has come on the same issue. She has said that Jaya Bachchan is trying to do politics in this case. She says, "I fully support Ravi Kishan's statement in this case in which he has appealed to save the youth from drug addiction. We should raise the voice against drugs and we should save our youth. I think Jaya Ji is doing politics in this case".
Jaya Bachchan said on the second day of the monsoon session of the Rajya Sabha: "Since some people have been named in the drugs angle, it does not mean that you are going to spoil the image of the entire industry. I am ashamed that a member of the film industry in the Lok Sabha yesterday spoke against the industry. It is shameful. The people of the industry are being targeted on social media". After Jaya Bachchan's statement, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut also gave her a befitting reply.
