She further claimed, “One thali was given in which a role for two minutes, item numbers and a romantic scene, that too after sleeping with the hero. I taught feminism to this industry. I decorated the thali with patriotic and women-centric movies. This is my thali, not yours Jaya ji.” Also Read - Jaya Bachchan Gives Zero Hour Notice To Rajya Sabha Over 'Alleged Conspiracy To Defame The Film Industry'
On Tuesday, Kangana raised a question and asked if Jaya Bachchan will say a similar thing if her daughter Shweta was drugged, beaten and molested and son Abhishek was bullied and harassed. She wrote, “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.”
However, many celebrities such as Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chadha, Anubhav Sinha, Hema Malini, Sonam Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar and others came in support and lauded Jaya Bachchan.
During the monsoon session Jaya said, “Just because there are some people, you can’t tarnish the image of the entire industry. 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. Jis thaali me khaate hain usi me chched karte hain. 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 government tells such people not to use this kind of language.”
She further said, “I am grateful to Ravi Kishan that Bollywood and drug usage was discussed in the Parliament. There should also be discussion on the Bhojpuri industry – the language and art has been misused to feed the poison of vulgarity to an entire generation for past 30 years. That should also be discussed, he is responsible.”
