Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Tuesday mentioned that some individuals are “bad-mouthing” the movie business and asserted that it’s the duty of the federal government to verify the menace of drug packet.
“Some people are bad-mouthing film industry. It’s not only the industry but also our culture-tradition that is being defamed. They say there is a drug racket. Is it not in politics or any other sector? It is the responsibility of government and people to stop it,” Mr Raut advised ANI.
Without naming BJP MP Ravi Kishan who had on Monday raised the problem of the usage of medication within the movie business, Samajwadi Party (SP) MP Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday said that she was “ashamed that yesterday one of our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it”.
“Just because there are some people, you cannot tarnish the image of the entire industry. I am ashamed that yesterday one of our members in the Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it. It is a shame,” she mentioned through the zero hour in Rajya Sabha.
She said that folks working within the leisure business are “flogged” by social media.
