"High time for clean up to happen."
Actress Raveena Tandon has slammed the “big guys” for ruining people’s lives and has applauded the film industry for “standing united” against the vilification.
Recently, the Indian film industry has been receiving a lot of negative comments from people in India and across the globe.
This came after the untimely death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. His sudden death unearthed dark secrets in the industry.
One of the most shocking discoveries was Bollywood’s drug nexus. Several stars were named in the case including Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and many more.
The film industry has been defamed by fans and media houses alike.
In fact, 34 production houses and four industry bodies retaliated to the slander. They have filed a lawsuit against the news channels for the defamation caused.
Applauding the step taken by the industry, Raveena Tandon took to Twitter saying:
“Twas high time for clean up to happen. Very welcome! Will help our young/future generations.
“Start from here, surely, proceed to all sectors. Uproot it from its core. Punish the Guilty, users, the dealers/suppliers.
“The profiting Big Guys on the take, who give it a blind eye and ruin people.”

The 45-year-old actress stated that the “abusive trolling and narrative” against her workplace is what angers her.
Raveena, who feels the remarks have gone beyond the limit, said:
“There is freedom of speech, yes, but to make statements which are completely untrue and forget dignity, woh toh raha hi nahi, without any proof, the vilification of people and the kind of language being used, it’s a new low.
“What we are seeing on social media, it’s a real tragedy.”
Bollywood’s link to drugs has been repeatedly brought up by fans and the media.
Recently, Raveena Tandon urged for a “clean up” across India. She wrote:
“Why only our industry? I feel people in the film industry are under constant pressure and scrutiny, but why only the film industry?”
“Because it equals to TRPs? If you are serious about war against drugs, start from the roots, where it starts. Round up all peddlers.”
Raveena Tandon further added that it is easier for news channels to unearth drug suppliers through a sting operation. She said:
“Their journalists can easily reach the peddler and then drug supplier, how come our cops don’t know where they are?
“How come it has been given such a blind eye? There are peddlers standing outside colleges, restaurants, hotels, pubs.
“You think there is no substance use in politics, parties, among industrialists, among politicians, among anybody? It is so clear all what is happening.”
