The cops used to get messages to raid various parties. We all know that these drugs are being used everywhere not only in Bollywood. However, in Bollywood, these drug parties and consumption takes place quite openly. I have seen that many young actors of Bollywood have started taking drugs just because of their surroundings."
"Talking about talent management companies like KWAN, when they approach an artist they are being asked that facilities they will be provided? Therefore, it depends upon to person to person, like are there things available? Like you have seen in the chats of Deepika Padukone. It's not that a talent management company will say you will get this or you will have to do this, it depends upon the artists. Till now, there is only KWAN which is under scanner but there many talent management companies who takes care of professional as well as personal requirements of artists," added Shilpa.
