The investigation surrounding actor Deepika Padukone in the current drug fiasco has certainly taken one and all by surprise. While Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor's statements were known already, the one with Padukone wasn't known just as of yet.
Now, according to a report in Times Now, Padukone's reply to the NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) has been revealed where she apparently denied any consumption of drugs at all and when asked about the word 'maal' being used in the chats, she called it code for cigarettes-
Usually, the rational understanding of 'maal' is termed to be for drugs and that was also what was assumed by one and all once these chats were out. However, with Padukone denying the same, we will have to wait and see what happens next in this saga.
We also reported earlier in the day about how the NCB will now look into the financial records of Padukone, Kapoor. Ali Khan and Rakul Preet Singh.
The Narcotics Control Bureau will probe the bank account details of the actors. The report also suggests that the agency is already checking the credit card payments made over the last three years.
