After Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Bollywood industry is being targetted on multiple grounds. Earlier, it was the nepotism and star kids debate that is still going on and now drug syndicate topic has popped up. Bollywood has entered everyone’s radar and people are holding the industry responsible for procuring and consuming drugs. Now, writer and lyricist, Javed Akhtar who is famous for many melodious songs that he has penned so far, has come forward to opine on the same. As per him stars and celebs these days are obsessed with fitness so it makes allegation of drug abuse baseless. He also spoke about his recent tweet on Karan Johar’s party.
Javed Akhtar Talks About Stars’ Fitness and Drug Investigation:
Javed was quoted as, “I have never used any drug in my life. Although I was not a very disciplined young man and I used to drink a lot. I don’t believe in those reports but look at their health, their physique, their physical fitness. These boys and girls, unlike the stars of yesteryear who were not obsessed by their physical fitness, which this generation is. In fact, they spend two to three hours in the gym. Do they look like drug addicts? They are extremely professional and responsible people. Today, the film industry is much more disciplined and responsible than it ever was.”
He also said media should focus on bigger matters than Bollywood. “I’m not an expert on agriculture or economy. Certain channels can educate people like me who don’t understand these things but they did not hold up their responsibility,” Javed told Journalist Barkha Dutt.
Due to the farmers bills passed in the parliament, more than 200 farmers’ groups carried out protests and rallies. However, even after being such a big news, farmers did not get as much attention as Bollywood is getting these days. For the same, he tweeted, “If Karan johar had invited some farmers too for his party life would have been easier for our TV channels.They would not have had to choose between farmers protest and Karan’s party!. it seems that Karan’s do is the second most favourite PARTY of our channels”
