Calling celebrities ‘soft targets’ in the ongoing crackdown on drugs trade in the film industry, actor Raveena Tandon has said that ‘no drugs supplying can happen without the blessings of local authorities’. Raveena’s comments come as actor Rakul Preet Singh was questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau, about her role in the alleged drugs nexus of Bollywood.
In a tweet, Raveena wrote, “The ‘Big Guys’ In my tweet. No drug supplying can happen without the ashirwad (blessings) of local authorities.Those are the Big fish that swim away unquestioned.If a Journo can reach the suppliers on stings. Can’t the authorities sniff them out? Celebrities are soft targets.”

The actor had previously called for a mass clean-up of the industry.

The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), which is probing the drugs angle in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, on Wednesday summoned actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Rakul, among others, for questioning, an official said. The NCB has arrested actor Rhea Chakraborty for alleged procurement of drugs.
