Rhea claimed that all three took drugs with her and Sushant.

Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh are two names which have been reportedly disclosed by Rhea Chakraborty during questioning by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).

Rhea alleged that 25 Bollywood celebrities were linked to the drugs case. Two names which have been revealed are Sara and Rakul.

Rhea was arrested on September 8, 2020, in connection with procuring drugs for her late boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput.

In addition to naming Sara and Rakul, Rhea also said that fashion designer Simone Khambatta would also take drugs.

Reports have circulated which also name casting director Mukesh Chhabra and Sushant’s former manager Rohini Iyer.

Rhea claimed that all three took drugs with her and Sushant.

The actress said that Sara Ali Khan had accompanied Sushant and other friends to Thailand. Previously, Sushant’s friend Samuel Haokip claimed that Sushant and Sara fell in love with each on the set of Kedarnath.

Rhea also alleged that 80% of Bollywood celebrities take drugs.

According to reports, she named the two actresses and fashion designer in a 20-page-long statement to the NCB.

After giving her statement, the NCB will be probing all the names given to them. The NCB is expected to summon all 25 Bollywood celebrities for questioning.

After Sara Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh were named by Rhea, social media users criticised them, especially Sara.

The internet soon flooded with memes, mocking Sara for her alleged drug use.

Netizens also demanded that both actresses be removed from all product advertisements.

The revelation comes after Rhea Chakraborty was denied bail.

In her bail request, Rhea said she was “coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions”.

She also said she had “not committed any crime whatsoever and had been falsely implicated in the case”.

However, the NCB argued that if Rhea is released on bail, she “may tamper with the evidence and also try to win over witnesses using her position in the society and money power”.

Rhea was sent to Byculla Jail where she remains in a cell without a bed or a ceiling fan.

According to reports, her cell is adjacent to the one occupied by Indrani Mukerjea, who was accused of murdering her daughter.

She has been given a mat to sleep on but does not have a pillow or a bed. If the court allows it, a table fan will be provided for her. Her cell is being guarded by two round-the-clock guards, in three shifts.

The actress was put in a single cell for “security reasons” as there are concerns that she could be under threat.

Rhea will be in judicial custody until September 22, 2020.
