Actress Shweta Tripathi who is currently seen on Netflix’s Cargo opened up on the drug nexus in Bollywood. In an interview with Times Now News, Shweta stated, “We are no one to judge people, I think we should be in a place to comment if we know something, or if we can manage our own lives. I feel that we are unable to manage our own lives and we comment on others, the ones we don’t even know. We really have no right on things in the industry. Kaun paani pi raha hai, kaun daaru pi raha hai industry mei, kaun drugs kar raha hain humanity kaha hai? (Who is drinking water, who is drinking alcohol, who is doing drugs in the film industry, but where is the humanity) So, even if someone is doing something wrong, like Gandhi Ji said, if some slap you one the left cheek, you present with the right one,” she told the portal.
In the same report, Shweta further opened up on the media trials Rhea Chakraborty has been facing, she feels everyone needs to have a heart, “Think on a human level, this is no way to treat anyone. Our empathy levels have to be high. We have to have sympathy. Forget about global warming, this way humanity will end humanity. It is important to have empathy.”
Shweta further opened up on the controversies Bollywood is embroiled in today during an interview with Bollywoodlife, she admitted, the vices that the Hindi film industry is ill-famed for, be it casting couch, drug abuse so on and so forth does exist, “If drugs are done, it’s not only in this industry, that would be very convenient. In other words, glamour, casting couch, whatever bad is there in the world, exists in our industry (Bollywood) alone. The other industries are all clean. I am not saying that everything that happens or spoken about is false. I have not faced, but that does not mean it doesn’t exist.”
