Veteran Bollywood actress and Samajwadi Party MP, Jaya Bachchan earlier in the day had spoken about an alleged "conspiracy to defame the film industry" on the second day of the Monsoon Session in Parliament where she had given a Zero Hour notice in Rajya Sabha.
After her parliament speech, which was an indirect jibe at actress Kangana Ranaut and actor-politician Ravi Kishan, a section of netizens started trolling her for trying to save the people who consume drugs but didn't say a word on Sushant's mysterious death.
However, the veteran actress turned politician has found support among several Bollywood celebrities who have hailed Jaya for her speech.
Sharing a video clip from Jaya's speech in parliament, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha tweeted in Hindi from his verified account which translates to, "I send my best regards to Jaya Ji. See those who don't know. This is how the spine looks".
Sharing a video clip of her speech on Twitter, Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu tweeted from her verified account, "For we have always stood by the initiatives, causes and awareness campaigns. It's time for payback. Hitting the nail on its head and how! yet again a woman from the industry spoke up #Respect."
"I stand with JayaBachchan as Kangana Ranaut put it Bollywood is a Gutter so JayaJi said that Jis thali mein khate hai ussi mein ched nahi karte And those who hv made a name here don't spoil the name of Bollywood, as for drugs they made fleeting comments if they knw names name them", tweeted actress-politician Nagma from her verified account.
Actor-producer Nikhil Dwivedi shared from his verified Twitter account, "#JayaBachchan is right. A false narrative that a certain malaise infects the entire #FilmIndustry is being created by few to look good in these times. A percentage of people in any field including politics &journalism indulge in things illegal or immoral. Call them out specifically and not ALL!"
"Jaya ji aap puri industry ki aawaz hain .. aapko pranam (Jaya Ji, you are the voice of the film industry, my respect to you)", tweeted director Anil Sharma from his verified account.
Meanwhile, Kangana Ranaut has responded to Jaya Bachchan with a tweet asking whether the veteran actress would have maintained her stand if her daughter Shweta beaten, drugged, and molested as a teenage, would she say the same thing if Abhishek complained about bullying and harassment constantly and found hanging one day?.
