Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone was issued a summon on Wednesday by the Narcotics Control Bureau after her WhatsApp drugs chat with her manager Karishma Prakash got leaked on Monday. Deepika’s manager is currently at the NCB office and is being interrogated by the agency officials.
However, when the summon was issued to the actress Deepika Padukone along with other actresses, Deepika was called in by the NCB on Friday to record her statement and question her about her alleged link with drugs, but the actress’ appearance before the agency got postponed by a day and now the actress will be appearing before the NCB on Saturday, September 26.
Since morning, many media reports are making rounds about Deepika’s husband and Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh. As per the reports, Ranveer Singh has personally written to the agency, seeking permission to be allowed to be present with Deepika during her interrogation, citing her anxiety issues.
However, the NCB officials have denied receiving any request from the actor and told India Today, “There are questions whether Ranveer Singh is joining the investigation with Deepika Padukone. We confirm that we have not received any such request from any summoned person. The last email received from the concerned summoned person is only regarding joining the investigation.”
The NCB officials refuted the reports of Ranveer seeking permission to be allowed to be present during his wife’s interrogation.
Deepika Padukone who was shooting in Goa before she was sent a summon, has arrived in Mumbai on Thursday night with her husband Ranveer Singh, and her team.
