Sushant Singh Rajput’s former talent manager, Jaya Saha, who is being questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau about her connection to the alleged drugs nexus in Bollywood, has reportedly implicated more names, ANI reported. Previously, actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh were summoned by the NCB for questioning.
Jaya has reportedly named four male stars, who will be probed by the NCB tomorrow. Jaya has been questioned for several hours over three days. It was reported that during her questioning, producer Madhu Mantena’s name cropped up. Madhu appeared for questioning on Wednesday.
Times Now reports that Jaya has now named at least more ‘A-listers’. A crackdown is expected to take place on Thursday, on the basis of which summons could be sent out. One of them, a particularly successful actor, the channel says will be summoned within the week.
The drugs angle in the Sushant death case was uncovered by the Enforcement Directorate in its investigation of his girlfriend Rhea Chakraborty’s financial activities. The Narcotics Control Bureau in its investigation discovered larger ties to Bollywood, and now, several other celebrities have come under the radar.
