Bollywood actress Tia Bajpai shares voluntary drug test report, Urges film industry to do the same
The Bollywood-drug nexus being investigated by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has brought to light several notable names in the film industry. With the probe already underway and a number of stars being called in for questioning, popular Bollywood actress Tia Bajpai, took a voluntary drug test and shared the report on her Instagram page. The actress known for her appearances most notably in films namely Haunted 3D, 1920: Evil Returns and Hate Story 4, has urged her co-artistes in the industry to undergo a drug test by themselves and share it on a public domain in order to avoid being generalized.
Sharing a video on Instagram, Tia wrote, "Not everyone is the same, and if any of my fellow artists don’t want to get generalised, get a drug test done and put it out in public domain. #NotAllAreDruggies #GetATestDone #SayNoToDrugs." In the video, Tia states, "Right now, the entertainment industry is being maligned because of certain people consuming drugs. That is why I have come out with my drug test today. I got a drug test done and as you all can see, it is all negative. I would request everyone to kindly not paint all of us with the same brush. Some of us are actually doing serious work and working really hard to create a name for ourselves." She further adds, "I would also request all my fellow artists to please get a drug test done and put it out in the public domain. Do it for yourselves, do it for your family, do it for your career and most importantly, do it for all the fans who love you unconditionally."
Tia Bajpai's statement has come at a time when Bollywood actresses Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh have been summoned for questioning in the drug case linked to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death. Rakul Preet Singh will be appearing before the NCB today (September 25) after initially denying receiving the summons, while Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor will be questioned on Saturday (September 26). Earlier, Kangana Ranaut raised allegations stating that 99% of the film industry has been exposed to drugs.
