The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) is currently investigating the alleged drug nexus of Bollywood, following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. In the midst of the ongoing drug probe, honourable Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh came out in support of Bollywood. Anil Deshmukh said that assuming that the whole Hindi film industry is ‘bad’ only because ‘some are involved with drugs’ is not right. He continued to share that the government will be taking actions against the guilty as well.
Speaking with ANI, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said, “It is wrong to assume that the entire Bollywood is bad just because a few are involved in drugs. Action should be taken against those involved in it.” Deshmukh further reiterated that passion and consumption of drugs is against the law, and that action should be taken against the guilty.
Anil Deshmukh continued, “If the drug is being found in someone's possession or someone is consuming it, it is against law. Action should be taken against them. But if someone is maligning Bollywood and working towards shifting it elsewhere from Mumbai then it's wrong. Won't let it happen.”
Meanwhile, in the past few days, the NCB has conducted multiple raids at the homes of many prominent names in the industry. Recently, actor Arjun Rampal and his girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades and producer Firoz Nadiadwala were summoned by the NCB in connection to the drug probe. Earlier, the agency arrested Nadiadwala’s wife Shabana Saeed. The producer was spotted at the NCB office on Monday, a day after his wife’s arrest.
