Actress Kangana Ranaut has alleged that a ‘top star’ who had had a drug overdose tried to get her jailed because she knew “secrets” about him. In an interview, Kangana said that she had been witness to drug consumption on the sets of the star’s film.
She said, recalling a shoot in Las Vegas, “At that time, his girlfriend, who was a foreigner, used to be there with him. Every night, there used to be parties and drugs used to flow like water. Drugs like LSD, cocaine, and ecstasy pills they’d even consume during the day.” She said that the actor was even admitted to Kokilaben Hospital after he overdosed. “He got a reaction into his lungs I think, however, the hospital wouldn’t reveal it and the matter was done and dusted there itself,” she said.
Kangana said that the actor tried to discredit her because “I know these secrets”, she said, alleging 99% of Bollywood consumes drugs, “If they are mighty and powerful, how can I harm them? Then why do they want to put me behind bars? They know that I know these secrets so they tried to discredit me, termed me bipolar, or get me killed.”
Kangana had claimed further that a character actor she’d met when she first moved to Bollywood would spike her drinks and turn violent with her.
Kangana has been commenting on issues such as groupism and nepotism ever since the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Claiming to have a connection to the late actor, despite never having met him, Kangana has even offered her cooperation to the agencies investigating his death. She assumes Sushant must have run into the kind of people that she has.
Sushant died on 14 June, claims Mumbai Police, and his father filed an FIR against Rhea Chakraborty for abetting his suicide and misappropriating his funds. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) are investigating the case.
CBI to probe Sandeep Ssingh’s connection with drugs & Bollywood: Deshmukh
Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said that he was going to request the CBI to conduct a probe in producer Sandip Ssingh‘s connection with Bollywood and drugs. In his latest statement to the media, Deshmukh said that he had been receiving many requests and complaints about the producer who claimed to be a close friend of late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
News agency ANI quoted him saying, “I have received many requests and complaints to investigate the relationship between Sandeep Ssingh, who made Prime Minister Modi’s biopic, Bollywood and drugs. I will send these requests to CBI for investigation.”
Earlier, lawyer of Sushant’s father KK Singh, advocate Vikas Singh, mentioned that no one from the family knew Sandip Ssingh or had any clue about him being close to Sushant. Even Rhea Chakraborty, who was the late actor’s girlfriend, said that she never saw Sandip or heard of him from Sushant in the year she had been in the relationship.
The drug angle in the Sushant death case has emerged after the ED wrote to the NCB regarding deleted WhatsApp chats of Rhea that proved that drugs were allegedly supplied to both her and Sushant.
