Veteran actor, who is also Rajya Sabha member of Parliament, Jaya Bachchan gave a speech in the upper house of the parliament. Her speech demanded support of government for the vilification of Bollywood. The actress also indirectly pointed out claims made by Kangana Ranaut and Ravi Kishan and took a dig at them. She said that just because of few people, one cannot tarnish the image of the entire industry. Also, she further mentioned that she completely disagrees with the fact that people have called the industry ‘gutter’. Bollywood Celebs like Taapsee Pannu, Farhan Akhtar, Genelia Deshmukh and many more supported her on social media.
