The Mahavikas Aghadi government of Maharashtra has come under Damage Control due to the infamousness of Bollywood due to the revelations of drugs and familyism in the Hindi film world. After Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has now praised Bollywood. He has said that it is wrong to spoil the name of entire Bollywood because of some people taking drugs. Not only Maharashtra, the whole country is with Bollywood.
Home Minister Deshmukh on Saturday accused the film world of maligning the film world and wrote, “It is wrong to spoil the name of all Bollywood simply because some people take drugs.” All those involved in the drugs case are being processed. Bollywood has brought laurels to the nation around the world and the entire country is with Maharashtra.
Uddhav said, trying to end Bollywood:
Earlier, while speaking in video conferencing with multiplex theater owners, Chief Minister Thackeray had said that Bollywood is being maligned by some sections, which is sad. He had also said that efforts were being made to abolish Bollywood and move it to another state, but we will not allow it to fade.
Bollywood eclipsed after Sushant’s death:
After the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Bollywood is undergoing an eclipse period. Apart from film actresses Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor, many film personalities have been accused of taking drugs. The Norcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has also interrogated these actresses. Riya Chakraborty, the main accused in the Sushant Singh case, has gone to jail. Horizon Prasad, the former director of film producer Karan Johar’s Dharma Production, is still in jail. Bollywood has lost its shine due to this.
