Dia Mirza responds to alleged drug link, calls it, ‘false and baseless’; read statement
Bollywood actor Dia Mirza on Tuesday took to her Twitter handle to respond to reports of alleged drug link. Dia on her social media, ‘strongly refuted’ the claims after her name emerged in some reports, in the ongoing Bollywood-Drug probe by the Narcotics Control Bureau.
Calling the claims ‘false, baseless, and with mala fide intentions’, Dia Mirza asserted that she has ‘never procured or consumed’ any ‘narcotic or contraband substances of any form’ in her life. She further wrote that she will ‘pursue’ this case with all ‘the legal remedies’ available as a citizen of India.
Earlier, names of Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor have emerged in the drug probe and sources have also informed that the agency is further probing the ownership of KWAN, a talent management agency.
The talent management agency KWAN employs Karishma Prakash – who manages Deepika Padukone – who has been summoned by the investigating agency. Currently, the NCB is interrogating KWAN CEO Dhruv Chitgopekar in connection with the drug nexus.
With NCB’s massive crackdown on the drug nexus, panic has struck the industry as sources have informed that 6 top male Bollywood actors have called their lawyers to discuss the future course. The actors, who are said to be in a panic, have sought legal advice in case their names crop up or they face summoning.
On the other hand, Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon on Twitter has echoed the need for the “clean up” alluding to the recent massive developments in the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) investigation into the drug links in Bollywood.
On Monday, names of Bollywood’s A-list actors emerged from prime accused Rhea Chakraborty’s talent manager Jaya Saha’s WhatsApp chats which were probed by the NCB. Conversations from a WhatsApp group where actor Deepika Padukone asked for ‘maal’ and ‘hash’ from a certain ‘K’ have been making headlines.
