New Delhi: Actress Deepika Padukone and husband Ranveer Singh flew back to Mumbai from Goa. The actress has been summoned by the NCB along with other A-listers from Bollywood in the drugs case related to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
Deepika's name emerged after her 2017 WhatsApp chats with manager Karishma Prakash were retrieved where the actress is allegedly seen asking for hash. The NCB noose has tightened on these A-listers and more names are expected to come out in the drugs conspiracy.
Deepika Padukone will be questioned by the federal agency on September 26, 2020 (Saturday).
According to sources, Ranveer has formally asked the NCB officials if he can accompany his wife during her probe. Ranveer in his application has stated that since Deepika at times suffers anxiety issues and gets panicked, can he be permitted to be present with her.
Ranveer further said that since he is a law-abiding citizen and knows that he cannot be present at the time of interrogation, but can he be allowed inside the NCB office.
However, no decision has been taken by the NCB on it yet.
