In the wake of Sushant Singh Rajput's demise and the following investigation, substance abuse in Bollywood has become a part of the national debate.
Consequently, actor Kangana Ranaut demanded that Bollywood celebrities being awarded National Awards should be tested for drug abuse.
In a tweet, Kangana asked for actors Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, and director Ayan Mukherjee, to submit blood samples for a drug test and bust rumours about being 'cocaine addicts'.
I request Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Ayan Mukerji, Vicky Kaushik to give their blood samples for drug test, there are rumours that they are cocaine addicts, I want them to bust these rumours, these young men can inspire millions if they present clean samples @PMOIndia 🙏 https://t.co/L9A7AeVqFr— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) September 2, 2020
According to Kangana, their 'clean tests' would help 'inspire millions'. Twitterati also commented on her demand:
