Reacting to Bharti Singh’s arrest, Raju Srivastav’s said on Republic Bharat, “I am not sure what is going on. Is it necessary to take ganja in creative field?"
He added, “I am not sure under whose influence she did this. Not only am I shocked, I am angry. She is my good friend. I had attended her birthday party recently and was with her for 3 days during her wedding.”
Raju Srivastav continued, "People love you. Don’t you think the love from 130 crore people is any less intoxication? Why do you need to do all this?”
"I come on this show to actually defend them and was going to say, they might have not have done it and that maybe the drug peddler took their name to frame them. But you are saying they have accepted, so I am shocked," the veteran exclaimed.
When asked if any sort of intoxication was necessary for creativity or to make it big in the field of entertainment, Raju Srivastav replied, “Ganja is not necessary for comedy. Did she do it for energy? There are other ways to build energy and concentration. One should exercise. Did you do to show off, to become like top stars, because they do it?"
