Yesterday, Jaya Bachchan in the Parliament spoke about how the image of the entertainment industry is being tarnished by a few people. She had stated, “People in the entertainment industry are being flogged by social media and the government’s non-support. People who made their names in the industry have called it a gutter. I completely disagree. I hope that the government tells these people who have made their earning, name and fame in this industry to stop using such language.”
She also used a Hindi phrase in her speech which was, “Jis thali mein khate hai usi me chhed karte hai (You make a hole in the plate in which you eat).”
While Kangana had tweeted a reply to Jaya Bachchan yesterday, today also, she tweeted, “Kaun si thali di hai Jaya ji aur unki industry ne? Ek thali mili thi jisme do minute ke role, item numbers aur ek romantic scene milta tha, woh bhi hero ke saath sone ke baad. Maine iss industry ko feminism sikhaya, thali deshbhakti naaripradhan filmon se sajayi. Yeh meri apni thali hai, Jaya ji, aapki nahi. (What plate is Jaya referring to? The one that was offered was to appear in a two-minute role, a romantic scene, item numbers, and that too after sleeping with the hero? I taught the industry feminism, decorated the plate with patriotic and women-centric films. This is my own plate Jaya ji, not yours).”
After reading this tweet of Kangana, Swara got upset and slammed her Tanu Weds Manu co-star. Swara tweeted, “Sickening Kangana. Shameful comment! Bas karo please. Apne zehen ki gandagi khud tak seemit rakho, gaali deni hai toh mujhe do… Main tumhari bakwasein khushi khushi sunungi aur yaha keechad kushti ladungi tumhare saath. Badon ki izzat bharatiya sanskriti ka pehla sabak hai – aur tum toh kathit rashtravadi ho. (Please stop this. Keep the filth in your mind to yourself or abuse me if you want… I will happily listen to your nonsense and wrestle in the mud with you. Respecting elders is the first lesson in Indian culture, and you say you are a nationalist).”
Sickening Kangana. Shameful comment! बस करो please. अपने ज़हन की गंदगी ख़ुद तक सीमित रखो, गाली देनी है तो मुझे दो.. मैं तुम्हारी बकवासें ख़ुशी ख़ुशी सुनूँगी और यह कीचड़ कुश्ती लड़ूँगी तुम्हारे साथ। बड़ों की इज़्ज़त भारतीय संस्कृति का पहला सबक़ है- और तुम तो कथित राष्ट्रवादी हो। https://t.co/RC8WUilBbD

Well, Kangana and Swara have earlier also been in the Twitter war with each other many times. A few months ago, the former had called the latter a B-grade actress.
