Talking about the same to Mumbai Mirror, Shabana reportedly called Kangana’s attack on Bollywood ‘outrageous’. According to the veteran actress, Kangana has started believing in her myths. Although the veteran actress is glad that Kangana taught feminism and nationalism to the film industry, Azmi feels that the ‘Queen’ actress fears the day when she will no longer be in the headlines. According to Shabana, Kangana should do what she is best at, which is acting.
Elaborating further about the unrest in Bollywood that has followed after the tragic death of Sushant Singh Rajput, Shabana reportedly said that Bollywood is a sitting duck. According to her, it is easy to hurl malevolent accusations. She also added that it is a systematic campaign to divert attention from real issues, failing economy, China border tensions, spiraling COVID cases, and farmers’ agitation by putting the spotlight on the supposed ills of the film industry.
Azmi also stated that the issue has gone from ‘justice for Sushant’ to ‘drug abusers in Bollywood.’ According to her, instead of people focusing on mental health as a serious issue, there is sensationalism at play.
