New Delhi:  After Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday indirectly slammed BJP’s Ravi Kishan for the raising the issue of the use of drugs in the film industry.

Kangana Ranaut has once again come to the scene to defend the statement, she questioned veteran Bollywood actress Jaya Bachchan that what she would have done if it was her daughter would have treated in the same way like she was.

“Jaya ji would you say the same thing if in my place it was your daughter Shweta beaten, drugged and molested as a teenage, would you say the same thing if Abhieshek complained about bullying and harassment constantly and found hanging one day? Show compassion for us also,” Tweeted Kangana.

The statement of the Samajwadi Party MP came during the zero hour in Rajya Sabha. She stated that people working in the entertainment industry are “flogged” by social media.

“People in the entertainment industry are being flogged by social media. People who made their name in the industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree. I hope that the government tells such people not to use this kind of language,” she said.

The Samajwadi Party MP had given a zero hour notice in the Upper House over an alleged conspiracy to defame the film industry.
