It is an open secret that movie stars love their Coke of the snorting variety. Rajeev Masand’s latest blind item is based on the drug bust of the supplier to the stars.
The top star mentioned in the blind is the true successor to another washed out star, who was caught buying cocaine. Although he may be a much bigger star, they share a common love for coke. The top star had escaped from drug related arrest earlier. He was caught buying coke & taken to the local police station. It was all thanks to his businessman friend – a real estate magnate, who paid 50L in cash to the cops & bailed his celeb friend out.
Cocaine is the favorite recreational drug of celebs not just in India, but across the globe. Its high price tag, makes it exclusive as well. We wonder how come the ex-wife of another superstar & wife of a megastar who are both coke addicts, are not mentioned in this blind item!
The arrest earlier this week of a well-connected suburban ‘fixer’, who was picked up after the cops seized drugs worth lakhs of rupees from his home, has reportedly sent a wave of panic among some film folk. Rumour has it that the police now have in their possession two cellphones belonging to the accused, which could help them identify high-profile clients he has been supplying to. The accused was reportedly under the scanner since his arrest five years ago at a Juhu party where he is believed to have supplied recreational drugs to dozens of film and sports celebrities.
It is well known that the accused and his brother run a popular DVD library in Mumbai, and that many top stars and filmmakers are members of the library, frequently showing up to rent films. A simple Google search will throw up multiple photographs of the accused with leading actors at his library. The cops are now said to be investigating whether the accused might have been supplying more than just DVDs to film personalities.
Sources within Bollywood say the accused lost many of his film world clients after his last arrest, but those he continued to supply are currently sweating in the fear of being identified. A young director with close ties to a top male star is said to have deleted all evidence of any contact with the accused from his phone. An upcoming actor with a producer sibling is also apparently distancing himself from the accused for fear of being linked.
