Actor Samantha Akkineni has participated in the #SorrySara and #SorryRakul online trend, after a report by a news channel said that the two actors were named by Rhea Chakraborty as consumers of drugs. On Instagram stories, Samantha shared a post about Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh not being summoned, and wrote, “#SorryRakul, #SorrySara.”
Times Now had previously reported that Rhea Chakraborty, during interrogation, had named Sara, Rakul and fashion designer Simone Khambhatta, among others, as drug consumers. The report claimed that the NCB had prepared a list of 25 Bollywood names who would be summoned for further questioning.Also Watch | Sara Ali Khan, Karishma Tanna, Sushmita Sen spotted in Mumbai
Free Press Journal later quoted NCB deputy director KPS Malhotra saying that no Bollywood names have been listed to be summoned. He said, “We have not prepared any Bollywood list. The list earlier prepared was of peddlers and traffickers. It’s getting confused with Bollywood. The names have not been zeroed upon.”
Rhea, her brother Showik, Samuel Miranda, Dipesh Swant, Abdul Basit and Zaid Vilatra have all been arrested on drugs-related charges in the ongoing investigation into Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. Rhea has been accused by Sushant’s family of having abetted the actor’s suicide and misappropriated his funds. She is currently at the Byculla Jail.
Rhea was also reported to have told the NCB that Sushant used to smoke marijuana, and that he started smoking while filming Kedarnath, which also starred Sara. “Yes, Sushant used to smoke marijuana, he used to take it even before he met me. He started this during Kedarnath. I used to control him in this department only. He was a man of his own choices and nobody could stop him,” she told Aaj Tak in an interview.
