NCB begins grilling Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) began the questioning of Bollywood actors Deepika Padukone and Shraddha Kapoor in Mumbai on Saturday in connection with the drugs angle the agency is probing in the investigation into actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death by suicide.

Padukone, Kapoor are being questioned about an alleged WhatsApp chat where exchanges of narcotic substances were discussed. Padukone’s manager Karishma Prakash and actor Sara Ali Khan will also be questioned at the NCB office in Ballard Estate.

Padukone was summoned by the agency on Wednesday and acknowledged the summons on Thursday. Rakul Preet Singh has also been summoned.

Sara Ali Khan was also a co-star of Sushant Singh Rajput in the film Kedarnath; Rajput developed a drug habit during the film shooting, according to the jailed Rhea Chakraborty’s bail petition before the Bombay High Court.

Karishma Prakash and Sushant’s former manager Shruti Modi were also questioned on Friday and Prakash has been summoned again on Saturday.

The NCB team also got important information about the case during the questioning of Sushant’s talent manager Jaya Saha, an unnamed official said. The official added that the names were revealed during the interrogation of people who are under arrest.


The NCB is one of the three agencies investigating the Rajput death case, launched its probe after it received an official statement from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) related to a possible drug nexus in Bollywood.

The ED registered an Enforcement Case Information Report on July 31, after an FIR was filed by Rajput’s father KK Singh against Rhea Chakraborty in Bihar on July 28. Rhea has been arrested in the drug case. Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai flat on June 14.
