Actor Shraddha Kapoor’s Brother Siddhanth Kapoor Detained for Alleged Drug Abuse at Rave Party in Bengaluru

Bengaluru: Bollywood actor Shraddha Kapoor’s brother and Shakti Kapoor’s son Siddhanth Kapoor has been detained by the Bengaluru Police for allegedly consuming drugs at a party in the city on Sunday night. The police reportedly acted on a tip-off and raided a hotel on MG Road where the party was hosted.

“Actor Shraddha Kapoor’s brother Siddhanth Kapoor was detained during a police raid at a rave party in a Bengaluru hotel, last night. He is among the 6 people allegedly found to have consumed drugs,” said Bengaluru Police. Speaking to the media, Dr. Bheemashankar S. Guled, DCP, East division, Bengaluru City said, “Siddhanth Kapoor has tested positive for drugs. He has been brought to Ulsoor Police Station.”

Police have sent Siddhanth as well as samples of other people in suspicion of having consumed drugs. Shraddha Kapoor’s brother’s sample was among six that returned positive. As per an IndiaToday report, police said it was unclear if they consumed drugs and came to the party or if they consumed them at the hotel.

Siddhanth Kapoor has acted in several Hindi films such as ‘Shootout at Wadala’, ‘Chehre’, Ugly’, etc. He has also worked as an assistant director in movies like, ‘ Bhool Bhulaiyaa’, ‘Chup Chup Ke’, ‘Dhol’, and ‘ Bhagam Bhag’.

As of now, the son of actor Shakti Kapoor is in police custody. Reacting to the detention, veteran actor Shakti Kapoor told ETimes, “I can say only one thing – it’s not possible”.

Earlier in 2020, Shraddha Kapoor was among those questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with the drugs case that was probed following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. However, nothing substantial was found against the Bollywood actress.
