Kangana Ranaut hit back at Rajya Sabha MP and veteran actor Jaya Bachchan for criticising her in the Rajya Sabha and asked if she would say the same things if her daughter Shweta Bachchan or son Abhishek Bachchan was affected.
On Tuesday morning, Jaya Bachchan, in a veiled manner, criticised Ranaut in the Upper House for comparing the film industry to a 'gutter'.
'Jayaji, would you say the same thing if in my place it was your daughter Shweta beaten, drugged and molested as a teenager, would you say the same thing if Abhishek complained about bullying and harassment constantly and found hanging one day?'
'Show compassion for us also,' Ranaut tweeted.
'Like a famous choreographer once said 'So what if we have raped, we have provided them livelihood', is that what you implying?
'There are no proper HR departments in production houses where women can complain, no safety or insurances for those who risk their lives every day, no 8 hours shift regulations,' Ranaut said in another tweet.
In a different tweet, Ranaut stated that there is a dire need to change the mentality from 'food is enough for the poor' to 'respect is also required along with the food to the poor' and added that she has a full list of reforms that she wanted from the central government for workers and junior artists.
'Someday if I meet honourable Prime Minister I will discuss,' she tweeted.
