Jaya Bachchan's comments in Rajya Sabha during the Parliament's monsoon session has garnered a whole lot of attention. After Kangana Ranaut called out the senior actress, BJP politician and actress Jaya Prada has also now slammed her remarks. Voicing her support for BJP MP and Bhojpuri actor Ravi Kishan, Jaya Prada stated that Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Bachchan is politicising the issue. 

Speaking to ANI, Jaya Prada said, "I completely support Ravi Kishan ji's remarks about saving youth from the problem of drug trafficking/addiction. We need to raise our voice against the use of drugs and we need to save our youth. I think Jaya Bachchan ji is doing politics over the issue." 

During day two of the Parliament session, Jaya Bachchan had expressed dismay at Ravi Kishan’s comments about drugs being consumed in the film industry. She demanded that vilification of the entertainment industry must stop and pointed out that film industry has stood by the government's side and offered them the support it needs. Be it tourism or bringing international name and fame or the government's campaigns, actors and the film industry have always been ready to offer support. 

Taking an indirect dig at Ravi Kishan, she had 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." Many Bollywood celebs have come out in support of Jaya Bachchan like Hema Malini, Taapsee Pannu, Dia Mirza and Sonam Kapoor among others.

Jaya Prada is much better leader than Jaya Bachchan. She is aiming for resolving the source of dark Bollywood. That other lady is using her influence to shut down exposing the darkness, and same dictatorship continues and victims pile up and eventually disappear. But their sovereignty continues. That is what this supposed to be mature lady is aiming. But Jaya Prada actually focuses on better Bollywood. Who should we support?

Jayaprada followed most south women in hindi movies . successful in career but a flop in personal life .Vyjayantimala, Hema Malini, Sridevi, Rekha all became second wives to a much married man . These men found these South women exotic and added to their list of conquests . It suited both ways .

She is tight and she didn’t mince words. Jaya Bachchan was wrong and should be told on her face, Jaya Prada could have chosen to be quiet but she didn’t. More people from industry should speak up about it to make it healthy environment. That is the difference between these two Jayas. One tried to use her power to shut down exposing what is happening in Bollywood so that unhealthy Bollywood to continue and another one to create a healthy environment..

Jaya Bachchan said that industry has been getting defamed just bcz of 7-8 ppl in the industry who take drugs. Not whole industry is drugged as KR said. NCB confirmed no celeb is involved in drug angle. But nhi BJP & godi media ko to raayi ka pahad banana hai. HUHH!!
