Dia Mirza: “I Have Never Taken Drugs, Nor Have I Ever Bought It”
Reports claimed that Bollywood actress Dia Mirza’s name came up during the interrogation of drug peddlers and she might be called by the NCB.
Dia Mirza refuted reports that her name has come up in the Narcotics Control Bureau’s investigation into Bollywood’s alleged drug links. She said that the ‘false’ and ‘baseless’ news is not only affecting her reputation but is also having an effect on her profession. She emphasised that she has never procured or consumed any banned drugs and will take legal recourse. “I would like to strongly refute and categorically deny this news as being false, baseless and with mala fide intentions. Such frivolous reporting has a direct impact on my reputation being besmirched and is causing damage to my career which I have painstakingly built with years of hard work.”
She further added, “I have never procured or consumed any narcotic or contraband substances of any form in my life. I intend to pursue the full extent of legal remedies available to me as a law abiding citizen of India. Thanks to my supporters for standing by me,” she said in a statement shared on her Instagram page. On Tuesday (September 22), some reports claimed that Dia Mirza’s name came up during the interrogation with drug peddlers and that she might be called in questioning by the NCB.
