Immediately after Jaya Bachchan's address in Rajya Sabha, Kangana Ranaut came out with her comment. In her tweet, she says, "Jaya Ji would you say the same thing if in my place it was your daughter Shweta beaten, drugged and molested as a teenager, would you say the same thing if Abhishek complained about bullying and harassment constantly and found hanging one day? Show compassion for us also."
In her follow-up tweet, the Tanu Weds Manu actress wrote, "Like a famous choreographer once said, “ रेप किया तो क्या हुआ रोटी तो दी ना” is that what are you implying? There are no proper HR departments in production houses where women can complain, no safety or insurances for those who risk their lives every day, no 8 hours shift regulations." This famous choreographer is none other than the late Saroj Khan who a few years ago supported rape on aspiring actresses by casting couch.
Jaya Bachchan earlier today addressed the Rajya Sabha seeking protection for the entertainment industry against those defaming it. She indirectly did hint at Bhojpuri actor and MP Ravi Kishan's speech in Lok Sabha yesterday. Her comment also included those who are currently maligning the film industry in connection with the drug racket. Incidentally, Kangana Ranaut is one Bollywood actress who has been constantly talking about the involvement of Al-listed stars in drugs.
Taapsee Pannu, Anubhav Sinha Support Jaya Bachchan
While Kangana Ranaut questioned Jayaji's address, Anubhav Sinha and Taapsee Pannu supported the yesteryear actress. In her tweet, Taapsee wrote, "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."
Director Anubha Sinha also appreciated Jaya Bachchan's stand. He wrote, "जया जी को सादर प्रणाम भेजता हूँ। जिनको पता नहीं वो देख लें। रीढ़ की हड्डी ऐसी दिखती है।"
