Bollywood struck by drugs
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has arrested Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan and his friend along with others in connection with the Mumbai cruise drug bust case. A couple of days ago actor Armaan Kohli was arrested in a drug case. There has been a rapid exposure of the Bollywood – drug cartel connection since 2020.
Be it in the 1950s to 1990s and to the recent times Bollywood has been into the visual occurrence of tobacco and alcohol consumption in their films. Of 300 films that were analyzed from the time period of 1994-2013 above 92% of the films had at least one occurrence of alcohol and tobacco. They say that films reflect the society that we live in, but isn’t it a point to ponder? Is our society so much into the consumption of alcohol and tobacco or is it a reflection of Bollywood in itself?
It is up to us to decide whether we want to spend our hard-earned money spent to watch them promote nuisance through their movies.
Sanjay Dutt saga
We all remember how Sanjay Dutt one of the first actors to admit that he was addicted to drugs, quit drugs after a lung collapse in the ’80s. Now he propagates ‘say no to drugs and be high on life’. Rajkumar Hirani’s 2018 film Sanju chronicled Sanjay Dutt’s drug addiction. There was a big controversy surrounding Fardeen Khan in the year 2001 when he was arrested by the Mumbai police for attempting to buy one gram of cocaine. In 2012, some television actors and star kids were caught when the police raided a rave party in Juhu. The TV couple had tested positive along with a star kid. An actress who is now settled abroad used to snort with her businessman boyfriend and had become a nuisance for the society where they lived together. There are a number of filmmakers and artists who smoke and do drugs in the garb of creative kick.
SSR is still waiting for justice
In recent times we have seen actors Rhea Chakraborty, Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, and several others along with their staff, stand-up comedian Bharti and Harsh making headlines when the NCB raided premises and took their custody.
The unfortunate death of Sushant Singh Rajput brought forth the ugly sides of Bollywood which includes nepotism and drug cartel.
To add to the misdeeds of Bollywood the Raj Kundra case saw two facets to its story, one was those involved in making porn shows and the other was the broadcast network of those clips. The case again highlighted the casting couch and porn racket that runs within Bollywood.
It has proven time and again that debauchery is a part of Bollywood and Bollywood parties. So, it is not surprising that there are suppliers who are aware of whom the kinds of stuff are provided. There are also drugs that have been named after some celebrities and more often than not actors have been spotted going to lounges with security fiercely guarding the door.
Ever since it can be remembered, the film industry has been all that is bad in the oh-so-pure world. They are the ones’ promoting violence, drugs, alcohol, and everything non-acceptable for a healthy society.
It is up to us to decide whether we want to spend our hard-earned money spent to watch them promote nuisance through their movies. So choose your heroes wisely. Choose the real-life heroes, not the reel life heroes.
