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:
Kangana Ranaut asking other celebrities to take drug test has the same energy as ‘I DIDN’T DO IT, RAJU!???’— Madhura (@Madhurad9) September 2, 2020

Vicky kaushik is such a new actor that we haven't know him till date. Anyway vicky kaushik wherever you are please go for test. Kangana wanted you to be tested. Now narcotics have two big things to do. First find Vicky Kaushik whoever he is and second to test his blood sample https://t.co/QJu15yQxbW— Shreyash (@Shreyash_2204) September 2, 2020
As of now, none of the celebrities named by Kangana have responded to her demand for a drug test.
