Jaya Prada said the topic should not be politicised (File)
Experienced starlet and BJP leader Jaya Prada on Wednesday lent support to BJP Lok Sabha MP Ravi Kishan over his remarks about substance abuse in Bollywood and said Rajya Sabha MP Jaya Bachchan was politicising the concern.
” I support Ravi Kishan’s statement as a matter of securing the youth from drugs is necessary to me. We need to raise our voice versus making use of drugs and should conserve our youth. I respect Jaya ji‘s belief in this regard however this is not a subject that must be politicised. She did not deserve to make such declarations,” Ms Prada told ANI.
She even more said, “Why is Jaya ji taking this problem so personally? She needs to be speaking about saving the youth so that another case like Sushant’s does not happen. He has left us and the entire nation desires justice for him.”
This follows Samajwadi Party MP on Tuesday offered an absolutely no hour notification in the Upper Home over an alleged conspiracy to malign the film industry.
Without straight calling Ravi Kishan, Jaya Bachchan had actually mentioned that she was “embarrassed that yesterday one of our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the movie industry, spoke versus it.”
A number of characters from the Bollywood film industry including Shabana Azmi, Taapsee Pannu, Dia Mirza, Genelia Deshmukh, Sonam Kapoor, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha, and others have actually supported Jaya Bachchan’s declaration.
