Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt is saddened by the sudden death of singer Whitney Houston and says that drug abuse has become main part of Hollywood's heritage. He also pointed out that even Bollywood has this culture.

Houston was found dead Saturday in a Beverly Hills hotel room. She was 48.

The reason of her death is still not clear but it is reported that her career took a turn for the worse amid her battle against drug abuse and a stormy marriage to singer Bobby Brown.

"The pressure of stardom cries out for relief. The taste of success cries out for celebration. Drug abuse is a part of Hollywood's heritage," Bhatt posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Not only Houston, the international arena has seen talent like Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Brittany Murphy, Pimp C and many more rising on the film and music firmament. Unfortunately, they succumbed to drugs and left their journey halfway.

The 63-year-old says that not only Hollywood, even the Hindi film industry faces such problem.

"Even here in Bollywood it is all available. It's whether you want to take part in it or not. It's all there. Anyone who says it isn't is wrong," he added.

Brittany Murphy was not a drug addict! She died by taking a lethal combination of Rx and OTC drugs to treat her pneumonia! All of the drugs were legal and she had a reason for taking them!
