The narrative about Bollywood is getting from unhealthy to worse and actor Kangana Ranaut took it a notch larger when she alleged that 99% of individuals within the movie business have interaction in using medicine. This kind of generalisation has not gone down effectively with many within the movie business, and Rahul Dev is considered one of them.
“I am a complete outsider. I am 50 and, I have never done drugs in my life. I have been a part of showbiz for 30 years if you count modelling, and what I am finding disappointing is that people are saying sab drug addict hain,” rues Dev.
Further proving his level why actors can’t be on medicine, he says, “When I have to do a stunt, I have to jump from 16th floor or the 11th floor, would I be able to do it if I was on drugs , you need your mind to be so attentive of you miss the centre, you will lose your life. All actors do stunts, so how can somebody do that while they are on drugs?” the actor asks.

However, Dev is fast so as to add some folks within the business would have tried medicine only for enjoyable, however he doesn’t know any such folks.
“I know a lot of people who drink alcohol. But I am a teetotaler. What I don’t like is that the narrative is about all actors- big, small or medium, they all take drugs. I am 112 films old and if was a drug addict I would not have survived so long,” he says.
Actor Vicky Kaushal has additionally been named amongst different actors as rumoured cocaine addicts. Dev says he’s disgusted to even hear that.
“He is a very hard working actor. I have done 5 or 6 films with his father, Shyam Kaushal and they are very nice people. Vicky is such a fabulous actor and he gets into the character in all his films so well. If he works so hard, do you think he could do it because he took drugs? Think about it. It is such an irresponsible statement about industry that poori industry bakwas hai,” the actor concludes.
