On 26th September, actors Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, and Sara Ali Khan were quizzed by the NCB on their alleged involvement in the drug cartel. Actor Rakul Preet Singh and fashion designer Simone Khambatta faced the questioning of the officials on 25th September after their chats with talent manager Jaya Saha came under NCB’s notice. But till now, surprisingly, no actor has been summoned yet.
Observing this, actress and singer Suchitra Krishnamoorthi took to her twitter handle to call out the ‘misogyny’ of the culture, a society that blames its daughters for every downfall. She questioned why only women were being named and ‘shamed’ in the probe being conducted by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
She wrote on Twitter, “From normalising women being addressed as “#kyamaalhai in the movies, to fuming over a woman asking #MaalHaiKya in real life, our entire culture of misogyny needs a reset. I’m still aghast that no men were named & called for #ncbprobe – only the women shamed,”

Although media reports suggest that the names of some Bollywood actors have also come up in the investigation, there is no official word from the NCB on the same.
