Raju Srivastava Reacts To Bharti Singh’s Arrest In Drug Case: ‘Young Girls Look Up To Her As Role Model, What Kind Of Example Is She Setting?’- EXCLUSIVE
After stand-up  comic Bharti Singh and her husband  Haarsh Limbachiyaa were arrested for  drugs possession, one of India’s oldest and most respected stand-up artistes Raju Srivastava condemned the culture of substance abuse.“I am shocked at the  way artistes  today cross the laxman rekha. You can’t cross the  line  of decency. Of course I’m aware times  have changed. Nonetheless stand-up comedians  should not forget where they come from. We are Indians, so please don’t imitate American stand-up comedians.”

Raju finds it  hard to believe that Bharati  has  confessed to consuming  banned  substance.  “She is  such  a simple  sweet  goodhearted  girl, so focused on her work, why does she need  drugs to be effective? As  a stand-up comedian for  40 years  I have never touched any drugs or  alcohol. Addiction to these can destroy  the  best of careers. Look at Rajesh Khanna  , the biggest superstar ever. His career was destroyed in  7-8 years  because of alcohol. Then look at the next superstar Amitabh Bachchan, still going great  guns at  78. He doesn’t touch a drop of  alcohol. The great comic  actor Keshto Mukherjee played  a drunkard in  all his films. He never touched  alcohol.” ALSO READ: Bharti Singh And Haarsh Limbachiyaa Arrested; NCB Seeks 7 Day Remand Over 'Consumption' And 'Financing' Of Drugs - VIDEO

Raju Shrivastava feels an entertainer needs no stimulant to perform and  entertain. “Rafi Saab, Lataji ….did they ever touch  any kind of stimulant to reach the summits that they did?  We  all need to learn from  these greats. Bharati should know young girls look up to her as a role-model. What kind of an example is she setting by admitting that she smokes ganja? Let’s  hope her career doesn’t go  up in smoke.” ALSO READ: Bharti Singh And Haarsh Limbaachiyaa Sent To 14-Day Judicial Custody By Mumbai Court, Post Arrest By NCB In Drug Case
