It was recently that veteran actor Jaya Bachchan during a session in the Parliament had spoken about Bollywood being singled out in drug probe. Over this, Prasoon Joshi was quoted saying, "A lot of the things because of the way they are said today, the real essence gets lost. Discrediting film industry which has actually done wonderful work that's also not right. But what Kangana is coming from, she is talking about her truth. Usko trivialise nahi kiya jaana chahiye." He also spoke about Bollywood losing its 'credibility' and stated that the industry's disconnect from reality is costing it a lot.
Earlier, Kangana Ranaut had taken to her twitter handle to share that big stars such as Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal and others should undergo a drug test and set an example for all if their reports come out to be clean.
