Bollywood celebs have come out in support of Jaya Bachchan's stance in the Rajya Sabha when she condemned the Bollywood drug nexus and said that the entire industry's image cannot be tarnished because of a few people. After Taapsee Pannu, Sonam Kapoor and Anubhav Sinha, Dia Mirza and actor-BJP MP Hema Malini have also come out in support of Jaya Bachchan. 

Speaking to NDTV, Hema Malini, though not in the same political party as Jaya, said, "I want to tell people, Bollywood beautiful place, a creative world, it is an art and culture industry... I feel very hurt when I hear people talking so bad about it, about drugs and things like that...Where doesn't it happen? But if there is a stain, you wash it off and it goes. The stain on Bollywood will also go." 

She added that the industry has given the world many great artistes and it cannot be "pulled down" in a minute. "So many great artistes... matinee idols were gods in human form. People used to wonder whether they were artistes or God. Raj Kapoor, Dev Anand, Dharmendra, Amit-ji (Amitabh Bachchan) they are all examples of Bollywood luminaries who made Bollywood synonymous with everything Indian. Bollywood is India. I can't take it when they ridicule our industry like this."

Dia Mirza also echoed similar sentiments and said, "Jayaji is absolutely right. So grateful that she spoke up for our industry. We are always committed to contribute towards social upliftment and social good. The industry has always helped governments. This vilification of our film industry is unjust and condemnable."  

On Tuesday, Samajwadi Party MP and veteran actor Jaya Bachchan said during the Parliament's monsoon session that vilification of the entertainment industry must come to an end. She said, "Just because there are some people, you can't tarnish the image of the entire industry. I am ashamed that yesterday one of our members in Lok Sabha, who is from the film industry, spoke against it. It is a shame. Jis thaali me khaate hain usi me chched karte hain."

Hema should be slapped a couple of times.she has always lived on giveaways from others. She was okay with being a second wife who ruined someone's home (Dharmendra is a kutta too and is more at fault than Hema). Now she and her daughter are always licking the Bachchans' boots. Bloody bootlickers.

Esha Deol defines the nepotism debate. Her mother "launched" her a 100 times and even then she could not make it. It's just not true when they say star kids get that first film but after that they get treated just like outsiders. The facr is that star kids fail repeatedly and still keep being (re)launched. Cue: Esha Deol, Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor. This lot is truly miserable.

Hema is a sufferable and rude woman whose car accident took the life of a little girl. This old woman needs a lesson in life on being humble and kind. Dirty, nasty woman!

Raj Kapoor, Dharmendra and amitabh were gods for Hema. All of them womanizers who treated the women in their life with no respect. Need we say more about the industry.

Hema snatched someone else’s husband. Good that Sunny Bobby don’t accept her publicly. A woman with no morals and values. She will obviously support the wrong doers. What else can we expect from a woman like her.

If the plate has drugs, then the w"hole" plate needs to go! Jaya madam, you are in Parliament because of and need to speak there as a representative of the people and not of Bollywood, Shame on you to espouse the cause of Udta Bollywood that is pivotal in Udta India, only so that you can continue to fill your overfull thali!And the onus is higher on the so called Bollywood "Stars" & "Idols" , as the youth unfortunately emulate them. If the thali (includes gaddi) go, then Bollywood ko to aap dhundti re jayengi !!
