The NCB's probe into the drug angle of Sushant Singh Rajput's death has led to a massive crackdown on the widespread drug network in the film industry. After the alleged prime accused Rhea Chakraborty's arrest in September, the central agency summoned a host of Bollywood A-listers including actors Deepika Padukone, her manager Karishma Prakash, Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh and Shraddha Kapoor who were named by the persons apprehended by the NCB.
