MP and actress Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday defended Bollywood in the Rajya Sabha, saying that the image of the entire industry cannot be tarnished due to some people. On this statement, Bollywood seems to be divided into two parts. One side, there are Kangana Ranaut, Ravi Kishan and their supporters and on the other side, Jaya Bachchan has the support of artists like Sanjay Khan and Gulshan Devaiah besides many big celebs.
Sanjay Khan said…
Actor Sanjay Khan of the era of Jaya Bachchan said, ‘What Jaya Bachchan has said in Parliament is correct. The contribution of this institution should be further understood, which we call Bollywood. It is the super soft power of India. Bollywood has acted as an ambassador in terms of increasing respect, love and engagement with the country’.
Unemployed people should show responsibility
Sanjay further said, ‘The unemployed and insignificant elements of the industry should be shown responsibility, not insulting about this loving family, from which they earn their bread. The media should show respect for the film industry and should not try to sensationalize the facts. I congratulate Jaya ji for her stand.’
Devaiah said – this humiliation is not acceptable
Gulshan Devaiya said in support of Jaya Bachchan, ‘I feel humiliated when people blame Bollywood for such things. I know that I should not take it to heart, because it is not for me, but this hatred is unnecessary and insensitive. Thousands of hard working honest people like me and others are here. Yet, it seems that there is no sympathy left for us. We have been called the traitor. This is not acceptable’.

Filmmakers Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri and Raju Srivastava from the industry have come out in support of Ravikishan. Raju Srivastava released a video supporting the revision and appealed to the government that the drugs syndicate should be investigated. There should be cleanliness.
Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri wrote in his tweet about Jaya’s statement of ‘jiss thaali mai khate hain usi mai ched karte hai’, he wrote- ‘First thing, the plate is made of silver. Secondly, only a few people have the plate. Those who have the plate are the king or crowned prince. The rest is all rain and when the beggar does not have a plate, how will they pierce it? Now the time has come to replace the plate, not the hole in the plate.’
