Sushant Singh Rajput’s case brings to light the dark side of the industry

While the death of Sushant Singh Rajput triggered the revelation of the dark secrets in Bollywood, with the latest development, it seems that things are showing up in the South too. While Tollywood & Kollywood has already tasted controversies regarding the topic, it is Sandalwood’s first taste in the matter.


This drug racket’s kingpin is a former TV actor

Three people were arrested by NCB in Bengaluru in connection to the case. M Anoop, R Ravindran, and Anikha D were arrested, and it is said that Anikha is the leader of the group. Shockingly, Anikha has revealed herself to be a former Television actor.

While the initial raids were at the Royal Suits Apartments in Kalyan Nagar, vital clues led the NCB to conduct raids at Nikoo Homes too. As per reports, a total of 170 MDMA tablets and 180 LSD blots were recovered from the spot.

In the interrogation, it has been revealed that this racket used to supply drugs to VIP’s, Sandalwood personalities and rich college students. NCB has already put these individuals under the scanner for drug usage.


The news will surely come as a shocker to the industry which has largely been away from controversies in recent times. However, it has to be noted that the investigation is at a nascent stage, and only time will reveal more details.
