NCB sources told PTI (Press Trust of India Ltd.) that some WhatsApp conversation purportedly discussing drugs is on the radar of the agency.
Some of these chats were purportedly between Padukone's manager Karishma Prakash and one "D" they said. NCB on Wednesday sent a summons to actors Rakul Preet Singh, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Deepika, and designer Simone Khambatta. The federal anti-drug agency has already summoned Karishma Prakash and KWAN talent management agency's CEO Dhruv Chitgopekar in connection with its probe. Both of them will be questioned by the NCB. As reported the drug law enforcement agency got the lead on Sara and Shraddha after it was found that they went on an island near Pune multiple times for parties with SSR. While everyone is talking about Bollywood drug nexus, Deepika's old post for husband Ranveer Singh calling her 'super drug' has gone viral. Not only this but several photos of the actress leaving the high-end restaurant named Koko in Mumbai's Lower Parel are also surfacing on the internet.
In WhatsApp chats that have been coming out, Deepika can be seen asking for 'hash' and not 'weed' from her manager Karishma. Karishma goes on to ask the actress, "What time are you coming to Koko? " To this, Deepika replies, "1130/12ish". The development comes a day after the NCB officials said they will be issuing summons to Bollywood actors Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh, and fashion designer Simone Kambhatta this week for questioning in connection with its probe. Besides Prakash and Dhruv, the NCB has also summoned Sushant's former manager Shruti Modi and talent manager Jaya Saha for more questioning. The duo was questioned for over five hours on Monday by the NCB officials.
