Mumbai: The issue of drug cartels in Bollywood has caused a stir in the country’s parliament. Samajwadi Party MP and actress Jaya Bachchan raised the issue in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, September 15, calling it a conspiracy to tarnish the name of Bollywood. Many statements are now coming in support of Jaya Bachchan, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said that Jaya Bachchan’s statement is absolutely true.
Sanjay Raut said the Bachchan family could respond to Kangana Ranaut’s statement. The Shiv Sena leader said that whatever allegations Kangana made about Shiv Sena’s Aditya Thackeray, he would have to give evidence to the Home Ministry, Home Secretary and agencies.
Very well spoken Jaya ji. Her words came in support for an industry she has worked in and is passionate about.
Movie industry is India’s soft power and for it to be maligned/dismissed is unfair. https://t.co/ZyHm5z1b5z

The Shiv Sena leader said that those who are raising questions should undergo a dope test first. If drugs are coming from international routes then it is the responsibility of the central and central agencies. If there are some bad people in an industry, it does not mean that the whole industry should be discredited.
Apart from Sanjay Raut, Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi also supported Jaya Bachchan. Priyanka Chaturvedi wrote in a tweet that Jaya ji spoke exactly brilliantly. He has worked in the film industry, which is why he has come to her support. The film industry is the power of the country, so it is not appropriate to discredit it.
