Drug problem exists in Bollywood, but not everyone is involved: Akshay Kumar
The actor finally breaks his silence on allegations of drug use in the industry
Akshay Kumar has broken his silence on the controversies surrounding Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and the ongoing drug probe in Bollywood. In a video posted on Twitter, Akshay begins by addressing Bollywood’s role in highlighting national sentiments. He then talks about the upheavals following Sushant’s death, saying they have pained the industry as much as its fans.
“These issues have made us look into our own selves,” Akshay says. “They have made us address the faults in the film industry that deserve our attention. On the talk about drugs and narcotics, I cannot lie to you that it does not exist in the industry. However, it cannot be that every person of every profession is involved in it.”
Akshay adds that the use of drugs is a legal matter, saying he feels confident that the actions taken by the enforcement agencies and courts will be absolutely correct.
“I know that every member of the film industry will fully cooperate in the investigation. However, I request you with folded hands, do not look at the entire industry in the same light. This is not correct,” he adds.
Towards the end, Akshay urges the media to report the situation with sensitivity. He also urges fans not to be let down by the controversy. “We will win your trust and love. We exist because of you. Please stand with us,” he says.
