After Jaya Bachchan's Parliament Speech, Security For Bachchans


Mumbai Police has provided security outside the Mumbai home of superstar Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan as a precautionary measure, a day after Ms Bachchan spoke emphatically in parliament against what she called attempts to vilify the film industry with allegations of drug abuse related to the Sushant Singh Rajput death investigation.

Mumbai Police has provided the additional security outside Jalsa, the Bachchans’ iconic bungalow in Juhu.

Hitting out at actor and BJP MP Ravi Kishen over his comments on drugs in Bollywood, Jaya Bachchan, a Samajwadi Party member, said in Rajya Sabha on Tuesday: “Just because of a few people, you cannot tarnish the whole industry… Jis thaali me khaate hain usi me chched karte hain,” she said.

Even as Ms Bachchan, 72, received tremendous support from several quarters of Bollywood after her fiery speech, a large section of social media users crticsed her statements, with hashtags such as #ShameOnJayaBachchan trending on Twitter.
