Rakul Preet Singh was summoned yesterday by the Narcotics Control Bureau for interrogating about the drug probe in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. The actress was grilled about her chats with Rhea Chakraborty about drugs and reportedly she also named four Bollywood celebrities in relation to the drug probe.
According to a report by Republic, a source close to the development revealed to the portal that, “Rakul has also taken the name of Kshitij as the person who supplied drugs to some of her close associates. She has denied consuming drugs herself but has admitted that she is in the know-how of Kshitij’s Activities. Rakul has also given several details to NCB after which KPS Malhotra had come down to question Kshitij in the NCB Mumbai Zonal office. Rakul Preet has also given names of 4 celebrities who used to procure drugs from Kshitij Ravi Prasad. Also, Rakul has claimed that Kshitij had approached her to work as his conduit.”
The report also further stated that Rakul took 4 names who are Bollywood celebrities who used to procure drugs from Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions producer Kshitij Ravi Prasad. The actress also confessed about her chats with Rhea Chakraborty being about drugs but she denied taking them.
But, Karan in his official statement denied such allegations, talking about Kshitij he wrote, “I would like to further state that several media/news channels have been airing news reports that Kshitij Prasad and Anubhav Chopra are my ‘aides’/’close aides’. I would like to place on record that I don’t know these individuals personally and neither of these two individuals are ‘aides’ or ‘close aides’. Neither I, nor Dharma Productions can be made responsible for what people do in their personal lives. These allegations do not pertain to Dharma Productions. I wish to further state that Mr Anubhav Chopra is not an employee at Dharma Productions. He was briefly associated with us for only two months in the capacity of 2nd assistant director for a film, between November 2011 and January 2012 and as assistant director for the short film in January 2013. He has thereafter never been associated with Dharma Productions for any other project.”
Meanwhile, actresses Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor are being interrogated by the Narcotics Control Bureau officials at their office.
