After Ravi Shankar’s remark on Bollywood drug cartel, senior actor and MP Jaya Bachchan stated that the entire Bollywood industry’s image is being tarnished because of few. She hit back at Ravi Shankar with this statement and asked him to not to be involved in a campaign that tarnishes Bollywood’s image.
BJP MP Ravi Shankar has now hit back at her again and mentioned that his remark was either unheard or mistaken for something else. Ravi Shankar adds that he was urging the centre to protect the Bollywood industry from these drug peddlers and cartels and that an effort should be made in order to recognize them and take them out of the industry. He further adds that I was trying to protect my industry, which is the largest film producing industry in the world and along with which, I was also protecting the youth of our country, which constitutes 65% of our population.
