Ranveer Singh is “peddler,” Alia Bhatt is “ Cocaine”, Priyanka Chopra is “ LSD”, Katrina Kaif is “smack” and Sultan is “supplier,” but not in a Bollywood film. These are apparently the drug codes in the world of substance abuse.
The dubious connection between Bollywood and the underworld drug mafia in Mumbai is nothing new, except in this instance it’s less dangerous and more fascinating. According to a report in Hindustan Times, Mumbai’s Crime Branch has cracked the code drug peddlers use while making deals after listening in to conversations like “Sultan is always late” and “the last time ‘Sultan’ proved a box office hit. According to the police, it means that a person is talking about providing the drugs.
Not just Salman, there are several other Bollywood celebrities who are favoured by the drug dealers in Mumbai.
According to a report in Mid-Day, Ranveer’s Bajirao Mastani and 2016’s blockbuster hits Sairat and Pink were trending this year during New Year in the narcotics business. “Many peddlers prepare for New Year as it’s their golden chance to make profit. Orders pour in right after Christmas and continue till New Year’s eve,” one senior officer from the Narcotics Control Bureau told the tabloid.
