Rhea Chakraborty was recently arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in the drugs case as earlier the Enforcement Directorate had found the evidence of consumption and procurement of drug from the actress’ chats.
Before being produced in front of the court, the actress filed a bail plea which was rejected and was sent to 14 days judicial custody and the actress is in Byculla jain currently.
There were reports making rounds revealing the names of Bollywood A-listers who were named by Rhea Chakraborty to the NCB during her interrogation. The few names were revealed by media portals which included Sara Ali Khan, Simone Khambatta, Rakul Preet Singh, Mukesh Chhabra and Sushant’s ex-manager Rohini Iyer.
Reacting to the news, Mukesh Chhabra has opened up and responded to the allegations made by the actress. In conversation with Bollywood Hungama, the filmmaker refused of having any connection to drugs and even stated that he will be taking legal action against Rhea Chakraborty.
He told the portal, “She is just naming any and every one randomly. maybe she thinks it will help her case. But this is not fair. I’ve nothing to do with drugs of any kind. I don’t even smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol, so where’s the question of consuming hard drugs?”
He further added that the actress is taking revenge on me for not speaking up in my defense and he has kept quiet. He decided that it is the best way to let the current furore die down. “But now by naming me Rhea has seriously compromised my name. I need to clear my reputation,” he told the portal.
Talking about the legal actions against Rhea, he said, “We are definitely taking legal actions against Rhea. We’re now looking at what remedial legal action is most appropriate. But I’d sincerely advice Rhea to not throw around name to deflect attention from herself.”
He said that trying to divert the attention from herself won’t help her and speaking for himself he said that his name has been dragged into it.
