Ever since the reports of Rhea Chakraborty’s Narcotics Control Bureau statement surfaced alleging that the ‘Jalebi’ actress gave out 15 Bollywood celebrities’ names including; A-listed actress Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh and her designer friend Simone Khambatta, reports on Sara and Rakul started to make rounds on the internet and over the night these stars were on every news channel and newspapers. Taking the matter to the court, ‘De DE Pyaar De’ actress knocked on the doors of Delhi High Court, after which interim directions were issued by the court to media channels.

As per report by news agency, Delhi High Court issued direction stating, “Centre, Prasar Bharati and News Broadcasters Association to consider Rakul Preet Singh’s plea as a representation and expeditiously decide it including any interim directions that ought to be issued.”

The HC reportedly said, “It is hoped that media houses and TV channels would show restraint and abide by the Program Code and other guidelines while making any report in connection with Rakul.” It further said, “Even if action is taken against one channel, it will send a message to others.”

For the unversed, one of the prime accused in Sushant Singh Rajput death case, Rhea Chakraborty, was arrested by the NCB over her alleged drug links on September 8 after her 3 consecutive day long interrogation with the agency officials over the same. The actress is reported to have revealed quite a few names of Bollywood stars in her statements with NCB including Sara, Rakul and Simone who consume drugs.

Later it was in news that the investigating agency will soon roll out summons to these celebrities for further questioning based on Rhea’s statement. To note, Rhea is currently under 14-day judicial custody and has been denied bail two times from a Mumbai Session Court. The actress Ould now presumably move to Bombay High Court to apply for a fresh bail.
