During the monsoon session at the parliament, Jaya had stated, “I am ashamed that yesterday one of our members in Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it. It is a shame. People in the entertainment industry are being flogged by social media. People who made their names in the industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree. I hope that govt tells such people not to use this kind of language.”
Previously, speaking about the drug abuse in Bollywood, Kangana had claimed that 99 per cent of Bollywood consumes drug and most commonly used is cocaine.
