In fact, Rakul Preet Singh, who was also interrogated by the NCB in the case, had also mentioned his name. Also, alleged that Kshitij used to supply drugs to these four high profile celebrities along with several other celebs in the industry.
While Kshitij’s arrest had brought Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions on the radar. The filmmaker had clarified that his production house isn’t associated with him in any way.
