New Delhi, September 15

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut on Tuesday responded to Jaya Bachchan's claim that there was a "continuous effort to defame the film industry" by saying that the Samajwadi Party member should show "compassion" to those who come from non-film backgrounds.  

Ranaut said: "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"

Amid the raging controversy over the death of Sushant Singh Rajput and the subsequent blame game that has been going on for the past three months, Samajwadi Party member Jaya Bachchan on Tuesday raised the issue of continuous effort to defame the film industry in the Rajya Sabha.

Bachchan demanded the government to provide protection and put a ban on the unending bashing being faced by members of the film industry.

"Some of the people who have got name and fame has said it is 'gutter'," she said, without naming the individuals but added they should not defame the industry.

"It is the film industry that gave name and fame to many people," she said. Their is a continuous process to defame the industry for the things done by a handful, she added.

She said that film Industry employs many people in different areas and some are highest individual tax payers.

The veteran actor, who is married to Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan is also upset over comments on social media and the media.

The recent barbs between the film fraternity has sharpened since the death of Sushant Singh Rajput on June 14, and Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut's continued vitriolic verbal attacks on her colleagues in the industry.
