Bollywoodians arent reacting to being called rapists, mafia: RGV

It has been days since Kangana Ranaut accused Bollywood of being a bastion of drug cartels (though not in exact words) and some commentators are surprised that no important personality from the Hindi film industry has responded to the 'Queen' actress. There should have been a denial or calling out.

Senior lawyer Mahesh Jethmalani, taking to Twitter, said that the actress' charge is serious. "A Bollywood actress makes a serious charge claiming personal knowledge on a TV channel with a large viewership that 99% of Bollywood consumes narcotic drugs. Not one person from that industry contradicts her. What inference is the public to draw from this deafening silence?" he asked.

Ram Gopal Varma, reacting to Jethmalani's question, has said that he is equally surprised. "Though I belong to the same fraternity, I am as baffled as you. And their silence also extends to them being called rapists, killers, mafia, etc.," the controversial director, who recently came out in support of Rhea Chakraborty, tweeted. Varma has earlier slammed the media and senior journalist Arnab Goswami over the reportage on Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
