Comedy King Johnny Lever reacts to Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaas arrest in drugs case

Ace comedian Johnny Lever has reacted strongly to TV couple Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa's arrest by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a drugs case
In an interview to The Times of India, he appealed to Bharti and Haarsh to speak to their colleagues once they are out and ask them not to indulge in drugs.
"I would like to say one thing to both Bharti and Haarsh. Once you guys come out, speak to your colleagues both young and old not to indulge in drugs.
Look at Sanjay Dutt, he confessed to the world. What bigger example do you want? Accept your mistake and pledge to quit drugs. Nobody is going to come to give you a bouquet of flowers for this case," the actor said.
Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbachiyaa were arrested over the weekend by the NCB following a raid at their Mumbai home and office.
The officials seized cannabis from their house. They have been sent to judicial custody till December 4.
Of consumption of drugs, Johnny Lever told the daily, "But consumption of drugs by this generation of creative people is crossing limits.
And if you get caught indulging in it imagine what will your family go through and those who are watching your story on news channels and are consuming even lethal drugs must be going through....and if this trend of drug indulgence continues... hamari industry kharab ho jaayegi."
Meanwhile, Bharti's colleagues Sunil Pal and Raju Shrivastav expressed their shock over her and Haarsh's arrests.
NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede said, “We have arrested Bharti Singh and found a little over 86 gms of marijuana from her. Her husband Harsh Limbachiya is currently being interrogated by NCB. We shall update on further developments later.”
Around 86.50 gms of banned drug (marijuana), which is said to be of commercial quantity, was recovered from their home and office during the raids and the duo has reportedly confessed to consuming drugs.
