East Bengaluru DCP Bhima Shankar Guled said Siddhant and four others would have to appear before the police whenever called.

According to the report, drugs have not been recovered from Siddhant. DCP Bhima said, “On Sunday night we got information that a party is going on and some people have consumed drugs in it. We raided and detained 35 people. Drugs were not recovered from them, but MDMA and Ganja were found lying nearby. We will check the CCTV to find out who kept the drugs.”
Case registered under NDPS Act
A notice has also been sent to the hotel in Bangalore where the rave party was going on. Further information will be sought from the hotel owner.

Shraddha’s name also came to the fore in the drugs case
Shakti’s daughter and actress Shraddha Kapoor was among those questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput case.
In the Sushant case, when the NCB proceeded with the investigation from the drugs angle, Shraddha’s name came up in this case. However, NCB did not find any concrete evidence against Shraddha.
On the basis of WhatsApp chat, the investigating agencies had interrogated many celebrities.
Many Bollywood stars have been interrogated in the drug case. Rhea Chakraborty, Deepika Padukone, Kriti Sanon, Rakul Preet Singh, Sara Ali Khan, Aayush Sharma and other A-list celebrities were also summoned in the drugs case.
Siddhant could not make a big name in films
Like his father, Siddhant could not achieve a big position in films. He is known as a flop hero. Apart from films, he has worked in web series and music videos.
He was seen in the web series ‘Bhaukaal’ in 2020. He has appeared as an actor in ‘Shootout at Wadala’, ‘Ugly’, ‘Haseena Parkar’ and ‘Chehre’. He worked as an assistant director in ‘Bhagam Bhag’ and ‘Chup Chup Ke’.
