“As I was talking to the book agent, this lady who also handles acting, she said that Ma’am why aren’t you acting and so I said my daughter is too small, we will see. She said no ma’am it’s easy and you just have to do a few things to come back into the limelight because you are too silent. One of the main things is that you need to be seen at Karan Johar’s parties”, told Krishnamoorthi.
The actress said that she was shocked at the suggestion as she is already a senior actress. Krishnamoorthi expressed concerns over the manner in which young actors might be guided in a similar way to do certain things in order to progress which might also include consuming drugs.
She added that the “women” whose names are coming up in the investigation are soft targets and that there must be some “men” behind them. Speaking on the silence of some of the Bollywood biggies on the alleged drug syndicate in the film industry, she said that “Bollywood is largely silent on most things except when it becomes a I-scratch-your-back-and-you-scratch-mine-scenario” and that “even a social conscience which you see very often is agenda driven”.
