Following the official arrest of Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty who are active in a drug syndicate is a list of up to 25 Bollywood actors, directors and producers involved.

Yesterday, the news Rhea Chakraborty officially arrested broke the Internet. While fans of Sushant Singh Rajput celebrated their small victory, other readers pay more attention to the consequences behind for the Bollywood industry.

25 Bollywood celebrities to be summoned in the next 2 weeks

To be specific, after being grilled for three consecutive days by the Narcotics Control Bureau, Rhea Chakraborty had to admit her illegal activity as well as give out names of involved people in her drug cartel. These persons are reportedly Bollywood actors, directors and producers.

Rhea wore a message on the third day of interrogation before being arrested.

The fact that some famous figures consume marijuana or procure drugs into Bollywood parties is not something surprising but this is the very first time when such a number of Bollywood actors and producers were brought to face the legal system.

According to reports, NCB will summon 25 Bollywood celebrities involved in the drug case in the next 10 to 15 days. They are named by either Showik Chakraborty or Rhea Chakraborty during the interrogation.

The NCB deputy DG Mutha Ashok Jain even said that the authority is looking for ‘big fish’ involved in the case. They will not spare the names of anyone during the investigation but we will soon know towards the end of this month.

Rhea Chakraborty was active in a drug syndicate

Before that, Rhea Chakraborty claimed Sushant smoked marijuana before she met him, on the set of Kedarnath. Rhea insisted that she tried to stop him but couldn’t.

Things turned out Rhea bought Sushant marijuana as NCB informed. With the help of Showik, Samuel Miranda, and Dipesh Sawant, Rhea arranged drugs for Sushant as well as managed finance for drug procurement. She remained actively connected to drug suppliers.

Rhea seemed to remain calm before the official arrest, even wearing the T-shirt on purpose.

Paradoxically, a decade ago, Rhea used to post a Tweet of how shocked she was when reading about a young Indian girl jailed for narcotics trafficking. Netizens are retweeting the post, calling her a prophet for predicting her own future.

Rhea’s plea for bail rejected, father reacts

Right after NCB arrested Rhea Chakraborty for involving in drug trafficking, her father Indrajit Chakraborty took to his Twitter account that Rhea’s bail rejected and the next act is likely in sessions court tomorrow.

He also expressed his desperation and anger for the ‘injustice’ imposed on his daughter. The father even wrote “I should die” when retweeting the news of Rhea Chakraborty bail rejected after arrest.

Rhea Chakraborty Father Tweet
Rhea's father is trying to drum up online support for his daughter.

This is not the only Tweet from Rhea’s father since yesterday. In fact, he updated the newsfeed every hour on the case, also urging everyone to quote the 'smashing patriarchy poem' written on Rhea's shirt to fuel support for the actress. In response, many Bollywood actors like Sonam Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Shibani Dandekar and Zoya Akhtar have shared the poem on their Instagram.
