Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has hit back at Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday and asked her that would she say the same things if it was her daughter Shweta or son Abhishek Bachchan were the ones affected instead.
Responding to Jaya Bachchan on her statement in Rajya Sabha, Kangana tweeted, “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.”
Jaya Bachchan targeted BJP MP & actor Ravi Kishan and actor Kangana Ranaut in the Rajya Sabha today without naming them. Jaya said, “Because of some people, you cannot tarnish the image of the entire industry. The film industry is being maligned on social media. Because of some people, you cannot tarnish the image of the entire industry. I felt very bad yesterday when a member of the Lok Sabha (Ravi Kishan), who belongs to the industry himself, I will not name him, spoke poorly about the film industry.”
“People who earned a name from the film industry are calling it a gutter. I do not agree with this at all. There is an appeal to the government to tell such people not to use such language. The entertainment industry directly employs 5 lakh people every day. At a time when the economy is in a very bad condition, we (Bollywood) are being targeted on social media to divert the attention of the people,” said Jaya.
