Speaking about how active drug cartel and movie cartel is in the industry, Ravi Kishan told India TV, “When our seniors came like Jaya ji, Amitabh Bachchan, this kind of atmosphere did not exist. I, Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, and others of the same lot came in the 90s then also it wasn’t there. The drug scenario has spread its web from the past 7-8 years and its business is worth many crores that is going on not in the industry but also in the country.
Who said that drugs are the only easy medium to enter the industry. Acting got nothing to do with any kind of drugs. I have played a lot of roles and this is the reason the country leaves me. The few dirty fishes need to be thrown out of the industry.”

On Anurag Kashyap and Payal Ghosh’s controversy, he said, “A girl is full of powers. If a girl reveals what has happened to her in front of the social media risking her life her family, at least respect her courage. To raise your voice in front of the country in the times of social media is in itself a big thing. You cannot save yourself from just writing a line or so on Twitter.
An investigation needs to be done if you have done something wrong and someone has accused you of a wrong deed. Otherwise, it will become a fashion and so many notorious people will not be exposed.”
