    Kangana Ranaut Hits Back At Jaya Bachchan’s ‘Thali Mein Ched' Remark Saying ‘I Taught This Industry Feminism’

    After Jaya Bachchan’s zero-hour notice speech in the Parliament where she slammed drug connection comments by a few Bollywood celebrities and raised the issue of an alleged, ‘conspiracy to defame Bollywood’, there were many from the Bollywood fraternity to stand in solidarity with her. Actors like Sonam Kapoor , Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chaddha, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha applauded Jaya Bachchan.  

    On the other hand, Kangana Ranaut had taken to her Twitter handle to ask Mrs. Bachchan whether she would have said the same thing, if her own daughter Shweta Bachchan would have been drugged and molested. 

    Kangana Ranaut lashed out at Bollywood and Jaya Bachchan once again on Twitter. She stated, in an industry that was replete with instances of male dominance, she was the one to kick off the feminism movement with her films at a time when actresses would get a small role in films after sleeping with the lead actor.  

    Referring to Jaya's statement in the Parliament saying 'jis thali mein khate hain usmein ched karte hain' [ few people are biting the hands that feeds thm], Kangana wrote on Twitter, “What plate has Jaya [Bachchan] and her industry gifted? My plate had a two-minute role, an item number and a romantic scene and that too after sleeping with the hero. I taught the essence of feminism to the industry, I decked up my plate with patriotic and women-centric movies. This is my plate, not yours Jayaji,” she wrote in Hindi. 

    Meanwhile, in response to Jaya Bachchan’s comment on a fellow parliamentarian bad-mouthing Bollywood, Ravi Kishan said he was hurt and expected her support while adding, “I am just a son of a priest who crawled his way up and has worked in 600 films.”
