Pritish Nandy: “Everybody has the right to protect their reputation. And that is exactly what the film industry is trying to do. This continuous and unfounded attack on the industry is wrong and clearly malicious. The industry is now trying to protect itself and its image. Also, this nonsense of faked news must stop and private mails cannot be used to implicate people. The privacy of individuals must be respected. Social media and anchor tantrums on television cannot take over the life of this nation.”

Shabana Azmi: “The lawsuit is a momentous action because all the Associations have come together along with the Production houses. It’s probably the first step of such kind that the Hindi film industry has taken.”

Hema Malini: “The insults were getting to be too much. I am not saying we are all doodh ka dhoya hua (unblemished). But to label us all as druggies and evil, was shameful and intolerable. I’ve been a part of Bollywood for forty years. I’ve never misbehaved nor has anyone misbehaved with me.”

Taapsee Pannu: “I’m glad to see unity. We have been yearning to see this unity since past few months so I’m glad it’s happening. Better late than never.”


Nawazuddin Siddiqui: "To label the entire film industry as dirty, yeh bahot gandi baat hai. I've struggled like any newcomer in my initial years. I've been discriminated against. But so what? It happens in every profession! Today I get the roles I want. I do the films I want to do on my own terms. I get the money that I think I deserve. This, in spite of being short and dark-skinned. I say this is a beautiful industry. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the world."

Shatrughan Sinha: “Every industry, every organization has its rotten apples. One can’t label the whole damn community as bad because of the few undesirable elements. This abuse of our film industry had to stop. This whole controversy was no longer about Sushant Singh Rajput. It was about something else. Exactly what, I don’t know.”

Urmila Matondkar: “The lawsuit is a much needed move. I am all for it.”
