Kangana Ranaut made headlines this morning when she suggested that actors Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, director Ayan Mukerji and ‘Vicky Kaushik‘, should send samples of their blood for drug tests to crush all allegations and rumours against them.

In fact, the name ‘Vicky Kaushik’ even took over the top 5 trends on the micro-blogging platform.

Ranaut tweeted last week alleging that cocaine is the most commonly consumed drug in Bollywood parties.
“Most popular drug in the film industry is cocaine, it is used in almost all house parties it’s very expensive but in the beginning when you go to the houses of high and mighty it’s given free, MDMA crystals are mixed in water and at times passed on to you without your knowledge,” she said last week.
The National-award winning actress had made a remark on social media claiming that “If Narcotics Control Bureau enters Bullywood, many A-listers will be behind bars.”
Her statement came after a drug angle emerged in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case, with Rhea Chakraborty‘s WhatsApp chats fuelling the allegations.
Post the statement, Ranaut has also said she is “more than willing to help the Narcotics Bureau but I need protection from the central government.”
