The information of comic Bharti Singh and her husband, Haarsh Limbachiyaa’s arrest by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection to their drug-related probe got here as a shock to many.Both Singh and Limbachiyaa have accepted consumption of ganja (hashish), NCB mentioned in a press release. NCB on Saturday raided the manufacturing workplace and home of the comic and from each the locations 86.5 gms of ganja was recovered. We reached out to her colleagues from the TV business to know the way they’re responding to this current growth on this drug probe which had earlier rocked the movie business.
I’ve labored with Bharti lots. I used to be shocked after I obtained find out about her arrest first, and thought it’s faux. Then when information channels contacted me, I mentioned possibly a drug peddler named Bharti to implicate her, however then I used to be advised she has confessed. I used to be shocked and unhappy. This is like an allegation on our whole comic fraternity, if we go to carry out anyplace now, folks will have a look at us with doubt lie ‘Raju iss age mein bhi dhamaal kar raha hai’, our numbers will get much less.
I had labored along with her on the finale episode of an motion actuality present a number of years again and have ran into her right here and there. I feel she is immensely proficient. Having mentioned that, I don’t know a lot concerning the case, so, I might keep away from commenting a lot. And, I wish to consider that it’s not like after Bollywood, now TV is the subsequent goal. The thought is to scrub the society of this drug menace and it has nothing to do together with your occupation or line of labor. But I’m towards this hype and trial by a sure part of media round celebrities. I really feel celebrities are a simple goal.
The information was fairly surprising. I’ve labored along with her in a comedy actuality present. She is extraordinarily proficient. I feel after Bollywood, now the main target is on TV business. But not simply in our business, even outdoors drug is being consumed and I really feel it’s time the problem is being addressed. While our society must be cleansed of the drug menace, I additionally really feel that the eye has now shifted from Sushant Singh Rajput’s case from it began. Some of those that had been preventing for his justice appear to have moved on… I simply hope amid all these we get a closure on Sushant’s case too.
There’s a psyche in our nation relating to consumption of medicine, and it’s a private selection if one needs to eat medication and alcohol, I firmly consider none of those are good for well being, and make physique weak. The information about Bharti was surprising, and I’m not being prude shocked right here ki ‘aise kaise hua’, it’s like unhappy that years of popularity… it’s not value it on the finish of the day. Having mentioned that, there’s no must look down upon her or condemn her for utilization. It doesn’t make her a foul individual from any angle, or doesn’t take away from her expertise.
It was only one actuality present that I did along with her.I don’t know anything about her past that. It is strictly their private enterprise. I’m not conscious of what she does in her life. I don’t need to touch upon that a lot. I don’t consider that it’s a case of concentrating on TV business subsequent. Let the case take its personal course is all that I wish to say.
