NEW DELHI: Actress-politician Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday gave Zero Hour Notice in Rajya Sabha to discuss an alleged conspiracy to defame the film industry.
The veteran actor, who is married to Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan is also upset over comments on social media and the media.
“People in the entertainment industry are being flogged by social media. People who made their names in the industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree,” the Samajwadi Party member Jaya Bachchan stated.
“The industry needs…support of the government,” Jaya Bachchan added.
The recent barbs between the film fraternity has sharpened since the death of Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14, and Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s continued vitriolic verbal attacks on her colleagues in the industry.
