The subject of illegal drugs and banned substances in Bollywood made headlines after the Narcotics Bureau opened an investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case. Soon, Kangana Ranaut spoke about the drug cartel in the industry. She called the film industry a ‘gutter’ and alleged that 99% of the people who work in it have been exposed to drugs. She even said that everyone should give a drug test.
Now, Urmila Matondkar slammed Kangana for the controversy over the alleged drug abuse in Bollywood.
Speaking to India Today, Urmila raised these valid points in response to Kangana’s remarks about Bollywood.
1- Urmila said that there is a “menace of drugs” in the entire country and it starts from Himachal Pradesh.
“The entire country is facing the menace of drugs. Does she (Kangana) know Himachal is the origin of drugs? She should start from her own state.”
2- She accused Kangana of playing the victim card and “the woman card.” She said,
“If one person shouts all the time, doesn’t mean the person is speaking the truth. Some people want to crib all the time and play the victim card and if all that fails, they play the woman card.”
3- She also questioned why Kangana was quiet all the time and why didn’t she give all the information she had to the police.
“Why did this person who has been given Y-security from the taxpayers’ money didn’t give information about the drug nexus to the police?” she added.
However, Urmila made her stance clear by saying that she did not support BMC’s decision to demolish Kangana’s office.
For the unversed, Kangana made headlines after criticizing Mumbai Police for their handling of the Sushant Rajput case and went on to call Mumbai ‘Pakistan Occupied Kashmir,” implying that she feels unsafe in the city.
