Singh’s name had cropped up during the interrogation of a drug peddler.
However, the actress clarified to reporters that she has been called for inquiry. In the video, Bharti can be seen making her way into the NCB office. Several other actors including Sanam Johar, Abigail Pande, Deepika Padukone, Arjun Rampal among others have been questioned before on the basis of Whatsapp chats involving drugs. Both Bharti and her husband Haarsh Limbachiyya have been summoned. The NCB has been probing the alleged drug use in Bollywood after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in June on the basis of WhatsApp chats involving drugs. The central agency had earlier arrested Rajput’s girlfriend, actress Rhea Chakraborty, her brother Showik, some employees of the late filmstar and a few others under various sections of the NDPS Act.
