Jaya Bachchan Reminds Government How Entertainment Industry Comes Forward During Crisis

In her address earlier today, the wife of superstar Amitabh Bachchan said, "I am very emotional and there are too many things to say. But you are not giving me enough time and opportunity to speak. Sir, I think the government must stand by the entertainment industry. Because the entertainment industry always comes forward to help the government in whatever good work that the government takes up. They come and speak for them. They support them. If there is a national calamity they come forward. They give money. They give their services."

She further added, "I think it is very very important that the government must support this industry. And not kill it just because there are a few people you cannot tarnish the image of the entire industry. This industry brings international name and recognition also apart from the political people."
