Suniel Shetty Breaks Silence on Bollywood Celebs Being Called Druggies: ‘Galtiyan Hum Karte Hain…’

Suniel Shetty on Bollywood celebs being called druggies: The Hindi film industry, popularly known as Bollywood, has been targeted for its alleged drug problem in the past few years. Many Bollywood celebs have come under the radar of the Narcotics Control Bureau and hashtags like #BoycottBollywood kept trending on social media everytime a popular name was dragged into these cases. In an attempt to end these allegations on the film industry, actor Suniel Shetty spoke at a recent event and mentioned that Bollywood is not the hub of drugs as it has been portrayed in the last few years.

The senior actor was addressing the media at the event organised by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) when he said Bollywood is not full of druggies. The actor said celebs are being targeted as though they are ‘drug addicts’ but he doesn’t know anyone who has indulged in drug abuse.

Shetty said, “Ek galti kardo toh chor hai, dakait hai. Nahi main 30 saal se industry mein hoon aur 300 dost hain mere jinhone zindagi mein kuch kiya nahi hai (For making one mistake, you are called thieves and dacoits. I have been a part of this industry for 30 years, and have many friends from here, who have never done such things). Like you said the gateway, but that gateway has to stop there.”

Galtiyan hum karte hain, unhein bhi bachon ki tarah dekh ke maaf kijiyega (We make mistakes, look at them as children and forgive such mistakes). Hashtag ‘boycott Bollywood’, hashtag ‘Bollywood druggies’ aisa hai nahi (these are not true),” he said.
