Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon took to Twitter on Tuesday and expressed keenness in uncovering the drug syndicate links in Bollywood and other industries

Bollywood actor Raveena Tandon on Twitter has echoed the need for the “clean up” alluding to the recent massive developments in the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) investigation into the drug links in Bollywood. On Monday, names of Bollywood’s A-list actors emerged from prime accused Rhea Chakraborty’s talent manager Jaya Saha’s WhatsApp chats which were probed by the NCB. Conversations from a WhatsApp group where actor Deepika Padukone asked for ‘maal’ and ‘hash’ from a certain ‘K’ have been making headlines.

The Mohra actor earnestly wrote that issues of drug consumption should be “uprooted from its core” and that even though the probe has begun from the film industry, it should “proceed to all sectors”. Raveena expressed that “the guilty”, including drug users, dealers, suppliers, should be punished for turning a blind eye and “ruining people”.

Twas high time for clean up to happen.Very welcome!Will help our young/future generations.Start from here,surely,proceed to all sectors.Uproot it from its core.Punish th Guilty,users,the dealers/suppliers.The profiting Big Guys on the take,who give it a blind eye and ruin people.
