The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has been probing an alleged drug case in Mumbai, and the NCB officials carried out a raid at Bollywood producer Firoz Nadiadwala's residence today. It was later reported that his wife Shabana Saeed was arrested by the NCB. Having known Firoz Nadiadwala as a friend and a very compassionate man for 25 years, I was shocked to hear of the NCB raid at his house and the subsequent arrest of his wife.
When writer-director Neeraj Vora fell ill and went into a coma, Firoz took him home and built a makeshift hospital in a room equipped with all the medical care and round-the-clock nurses when he could ill-afford it.“Paise ka kya hai, Subhash.Aata hai jaata hai.Reh jaate hain apne karm (money comes and goes. What remains is one’s deeds),” he told me after Vora’s treatment had wiped him out financially.

Recently when he signed Nana Patekar for a web series there was an uproar amongst the supporters of the MeToo movement. Firoz was unfazed. “Bhai, aisa hai ke hum koi nahin hote hai kissiko judge karne wale. Yeh kaam oopar wale pe chhod do(we are no one to judge anyone.Leave that to God).” ALSO READ: NCB Arrests Producer Firoz Nadiadwala's Wife Shabana Saeed In Connection To The Drug Probe: REPORTS
Today Firoz Nadiadwala finds himself in serious trouble. “The truth will be out. Pray for me, Bhai,” is all he was able to say.
