Swara Bhasker has come out in defence of Jaya Bachchan after the Queen actress slammed the veteran star for her parliament speech. In a tweet, Swara wrote, “Sickening Kangana. Shameful comment! Bas karo please. Apne zehen ki gandagi khud tak seemit rakho, gaali deni hai toh mujhe do… Main tumhari bakwasein khushi khushi sunungi aur yeh keechad kushti ladungi tumhare saath. Badon ki izzat bharatiya sanskriti ka pehla sabak hai - aur tum toh kathit rashtravadi ho (Please stop this. Keep the filth in your mind to yourself or abuse me if you want… I will happily listen to your nonsense and wrestle in the mud with you. Respecting one’s elders is the first lesson in Indian culture, and you say you are a nationalist).”Responding to Jaya Bachchan's thali comment, Kangana said that Bollywood offered two-minute roles, item numbers and one measly romantic scene, that too after the casting couch. She claimed that she was the one who brought feminism and patriotism in Hindi films.
Sickening Kangana. Shameful comment! बस करो please. अपने ज़हन की गंदगी ख़ुद तक सीमित रखो, गाली देनी है तो मुझे दो.. मैं तुम्हारी बकवासें ख़ुशी ख़ुशी सुनूँगी और यह कीचड़ कुश्ती लड़ूँगी तुम्हारे साथ। बड़ों की इज़्ज़त भारतीय संस्कृति का पहला सबक़ है- और तुम तो कथित राष्ट्रवादी हो। https://t.co/RC8WUilBbD— Swara Bhasker (@ReallySwara) September 16, 2020
On Tuesday, she had written after the veteran actor’s speech in the Rajya Sabha, “Jaya ji would you say the same thing if in my place it was your daughter Shweta beaten, drugged and molested as a teenage, would you say the same thing if Abhieshek complained about bullying and harassment constantly and found hanging one day? Show compassion for us also.”Jaya, on Tuesday, drew the Rajya Sabha’s attention to the negative portrayal of the film industry by some of its members. “People in the entertainment industry are being flogged by social media. People who made their names in the industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree. I hope that the government tells such people not to use this kind of language. Jis thali mein khate hai usme chhed karte hai. Galat baat hai (they bite the hand that feeds, it’s wrong),” she said. Kangana had earlier called the film industry a ‘gutter’ and claimed that an overwhelming majority engages in drug use. She has also been attacking the ‘mafia’ in Bollywood. Ranaut has been on a crusade in demanding justice for Sushant Singh Rajput.
