Power Punch: 4 Times When Jaya Bachchan's Rajya Sabha Speeches Made Headlines

Jaya Bachchan hits out at Ravi Kishan's 'drug addiction' comment in parliament: It is a shame

Jaya Bachchan hits out at Ravi Kishan's 'drug addiction' comment in parliament: It is a shame

"Can't segregate them this way", said Jaya.Expressing her anguish over BJP's youth wing leader Yogesh Varshney's comments offering a reward of Rs. 11 lakh for West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee's head, Samajwadi Party's Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan said that the saffron party was keen on protecting cows, not women. She responded that her voice will not be clear if she spoke while wearing the mask.

Kangana, in a sharp rebuttal to Jaya Bachchan's comments remarks, took to Twitter saying would she say the same things if it was her son Abhishek Bachchan or daughter Shweta Bachchan in the actress's (Kangana) place.

"Sir thanks a lot".

The government, she said, must stand by the entertainment industry.

The veteran actor said that the entertainment industry was being "vilified on social media" and urged the government to tell people not to use words like "gutter" to describe it. Allegations of drug usage in Bollywood have surfaced after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

"People who have made a name in this industry have called it a gutter".

New space missions could also travel to our neighbouring planet and sample the clouds in situ to further search for signs of life.

"I was really embarrassed and ashamed that yesterday (September 14) one of our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the industry, spoke".

She went on to say that all kinds of promises are made to the entertainment industry but it has never got its due.

"The industry needs the protection and support of the government", Jaya Bachchan said. If there is a national calamity, they give their money and everything. Hence, I request you to support the industry.Just because of a few people, you can not tarnish the whole industry.

The veteran actor, who is married to Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan, said the entertainment industry brings global name and recognition to the country.

On day one of the Monsoon Session in Parliament, BJP MP and actor Ravi Kishan referred to the current Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) investigation of the drugs angle linked to the Sushant Singh Rajput's death case in which several names were arrested including Rhea Chakraborty.

"Jis thaali me khate hai, usi me ched karte hai", she said in Hindi in a dig at the actor, literally meaning destroying the goose that lays the golden egg. Amid the drug controversy, Ranaut has compared Mumbai to POK (Pakistan occupied Kashmir).
