Samajwadi Party MP and veteran actor Jaya Bachchan has hit back at actor-politician Ravi Kishan who said in parliament yesterday that drug addiction is in the film industry too, saying that the industry is being “flogged by social media and the government’s non-support”. “Just because of a few people, you cannot tarnish the whole industry… I was really embarrassed and ashamed that yesterday one of our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the industry, spoke against the film industry. Jis thaali me khaate hain usi me chched karte hain,” Ms Bachchan said in the Rajya Sabha today, referring to the BJP MP’s statement in Lok Sabha. Her remark in Hindi, draws from the idiom, “Bite the hand that feeds you”. Ravi Kishan, a popular actor of Bhojpuri and Hindi films, and a BJP MP from Uttar Pradesh, raised in parliament the drugs-related allegations that have emerged against the film industry in the Sushant Singh Rajput investigations. He alleged a “conspiracy” by Pakistan and China to destroy the country’s younger citizens.
