The emergence of Deepika Padukone’s alleged chats about drugs became a massive talking point amid multiple probe angles into the Bollywood-drugs link. Kangana Ranaut, who had highlighted the widespread drug consumption in the industry, fired a dig at Deepika as the chats were leaked. Kangana brought out Deepika’s ‘repeat after me’ series quotes to highlight depression and questioned the ‘classy’ and ‘high society star children with good upbringing’ talking about ‘maal.’
