“Salman Khan Takes Drugs, Aamir…”: Yoga Guru Ramdev’s Speech
Ramdev, a yoga instructor, made a controversial statement on Saturday that has since gone viral in which he spoke out against “Bollywood and narcotics” and specifically mentioned Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan’s son.
Ramdev appeared to blame the entertainment industry and celebrities for drug spread as he spoke at the beginning of an anti-drugs campaign in Uttar Pradesh.
“Shah Rukh Khan’s son (Aryan Khan) was caught doing drugs at a drug party. He went to jail. Salman Khan takes drugs. I don’t know about Aamir Khan. God knows about these actors,” said the Yoga teacher, addressing a large gathering in Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh.
“Who knows how many film stars take drugs. And actresses – even worse. In the film industry, it is drugs everywhere. There are drugs in Bollywood, drugs in politics,” he railed at a three-day “Aryaveer Sammelan”.
“Liquor is distributed during elections. We should take a vow that India must be free from every drug addiction. For this, we will launch a movement.”
Ramdev made unfounded accusations, and none of the famous people he identified have responded.
Aryan Khan, the son of Shah Rukh Khan, who was detained in the “drugs-on-cruise” case last year, was exonerated due to a lack of evidence. After 20 days in jail, he was released on bail.
After the shocking passing of actor Sushant Singh Rajput in 2020, a number of cinema figures were questioned as part of a probe into an alleged “Bollywood-drugs connection.”
