Throughout the Sushant-Versus-Rhea-Versus-Neptism-Versus-Drugs debate the one iconic actor who has maintained a safe distance is Amitabh Bachchan. His silence over the matter is now threatened after wife Jaya spoke out in parliament against the vilification of the entire entertainment industry as den of vice.
Says a source close to the Bachchans, “Jayaji doesn’t mind being trolled brutally over the issue.When she spoke in defence of the film industry she knew what she was getting into. What she hadn’t bargained for was the abuse of her family.It is this kind of below-the-belt abuse that prevents Bachchan Saab from speaking about controversial issues. Now it has happened.’
Sources say Mr Bachchan will continue to be silent over the issue.
