‘I want to be Jaya Bachchan when I grow up’: Sonam Kapoor, Richa Chadha, Taapsee applaud actor’s explosive speech

Published

Bollywood actors Richa Chadha, Taapsee Pannu and Sonam Kapoor took to Twitter to share the explosive speech by actor and Rajya Sabha member of Parliament Jaya Bachchan as she demanded the support of the government against vilification of Bollywood. She also slammed the comments of Kangana Ranaut and BJP member of Parliament and fellow actor Ravi Kishan.

Not mincing her words, Richa wrote on Twitter: “Mrs Jaya Bachchan started her career with legend Satyajit Ray and then went on to redefine Hindi cinema. Watch this to see the face of fearlessness. The ‘agents’ and khurchans participating in the deliberate vilification of Bollywood will self-destruct like bhasmasurs. #respect.”

 

Taapsee Pannu too shared the speech and wrote: “For we have always stood by the initiatives, causes and awareness campaigns. It’s time for payback. Hitting the nail on its head and how ! yet again a woman from the industry spoke up #Respect.”

 

Sonam Kapoor shared the speech and wrote: “I want to be her when I grow up..”

 

Prior to that, director Anurag Kashyap, wrote in Hindi, “Jayaji ko sadar pranam karta hoon. Jinko pata nahi wo dekh lein, Reed ki haddi aisee dikhti hai (I pay my respect to Jayaji. Those who do not know must watch this. This is what a spine looks like).”

In her speech, earlier in the day, in the upper house (Rajya Sabha) of the parliament, Jaya ripped through recent statements made by Kangana and Ravi. She said that the film industry was being defamed and slammed those from the entertainment industry indulging in it, saying they bite the hands that feed them.

Through a zero hour mention in Rajya Sabha, Jaya said the entertainment industry was being flogged by social media and asked the government to protect and support it. Without taking names, she said she completely disagreed with those who called the entertainment industry a “gutter”. “People who have made a name in this industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree and I really disassociate,” she said.

In a reference to Ravi Kishan’s statement in Lok Sabha on the alleged Bollywood drug cartel, Jaya said she was “really embarrassed and ashamed”. “Jis thali mein khate hai usme chhed karte hai. Galat baat hai,” she said referring to a popular Hindi proverb that means to bite the hands that feed you.

“I think it is very very important that the government must support this industry and not kill it. Just because there are few people, you cannot tarnish the image of the entire industry,” she had continued.

Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 featuring Parth Samthaan, Erica Fernandes, Aamna Sharif, Pooja Banerjee, Sahil Anand and Shubhaavi Choksey in prominent roles is ending its two-year run next month on October 3. The cast of the hit show shot together for the last time today and Pooja Banerjee, who plays Nivedita Basu feels completely heartbroken about it.

Pooja told ETimesTV, “Everybody is in a sombre mood. Nobody is happy but nobody is a cry-baby also. At times, somebody might shed a couple of tears. We have shot a balanced ending. Not too sad or happy.”

She went on to add, “We knew for a good amount of time that the show is going off-air so it wasn’t expected. Whenever any shows go off-air, you feel a little bumped. Since day 1 we knew that it will come to an end. When the day comes, you actually feel it. Everybody is pretty optimistic about it. And we are very proud of the fact that we are a great team. The camaraderie we share is unmatched.”

Pooja also spoke about her team hair, makeup and wardrobe team and their contribution in making her character stand out. She was quoted by the SpotBoyE as saying, “I am really going to miss my entire team of Kasautii Zindagii Kay. I will also miss being sassy Nivedita Basu and especially draping Nivi style sarees. My team who helps me to get into the attire have been teary-eyed from past 5-6 days. My hairstylist, makeup artist, costume and jewellery team always gave their best and went out of their way to make my look stand out and I will always be thankful to them for this”.

While the first instalment was helmed by Tigmanshu Dhulia and Vishal Furia, Rohan Sippy and Arjun Mukherjee have picked up the directorial baton this time around. A source reveals, “We had initially kicked off the shoot in March, but had to call it off due to the pandemic.

The team will hopefully complete the dubbing and post-production in October so that the series can drop online by early November.” Pankaj Tripathi reprises his role as advocate Madhav Mishra who provides legal counsel to Kulhari’s character who is accused of killing her abusive husband.
