‘Kangana is speaking truth’: Prasoon Joshi on Bollywood drug nexus

CBFC chairman Prasoon Joshi has validated Kangana Ranaut‘s claims about drugs usage in Bollywood, as he confirmed that the actress is stating the truth. For the uninformed, Kangana had said that majority of Bollywood celebrities, including some A-listers, take drugs.


Talking about Bollywood being singled out in the drug abuse angle, Prasoon said that discrediting the industry which has done some wonderful work is not right. However, he also stated that Kangana Ranaut is talking about her truth and it shouldn’t be trivialised.

Interestingly, Akshay Kumar has also accepted that there is a drug problem in Bollywood. He however pleaded with the fans to not consider the whole industry bad because of a few people.

Kangana Ranaut had also reached out to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) and said that she could reveal the names who take drugs in Bollywood. In return, she asked them to provide her with security. She has often gone on record to state that her life is in danger. Ranaut had even received Y-level security when she arrived to Mumbai from Himachal Pradesh, where she was quarantining.

Kangana, who had reacted to the summoning of Sara Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Shraddha Kapoor by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) recently, has been talking about the movie mafia and how she has very little trust in Maharashtra Government, ever since Sushant Singh Rajput died mysteriously on June 14, 2020.
