Ananya Panday, the daughter of actor Chunky Panday, has arrived at the NCB’s headquarters after being summoned earlier today and requested to appear before the anti-drug agency for questioning. After NCB acquired her chat messages from Aryan Khan’s phone, Ananya Panday was summoned. According to NCB sources, her name has been under investigation for a few days. Earlier, it was reported that Aryan’s WhatsApp conversations with an aspiring Bollywood starlet included a drug talk. The NCB, on the other hand, has yet to establish whether Ananya’s case is linked to Aryan Khan’s.
Meanwhile, Chunky Panday, Ananya Panday’s father, has stated that the family is seeking legal advice for Ananya to respond to the NCB summons. According to reports, Ananya Panday would be asked if she knows Aryan Khan, if she has seen Aryan Khan use drugs, and so on.
The NCB team also paid a visit to Shah Rukh Khan’s home in Mumbai, Mannat, on Thursday, demanding specific materials pertaining to the investigation of the case from Shah Rukh Khan, according to the agency. The agency then confirmed that there was no raid on Sha Rukh Khan’s home. Ananya Panday is the latest Bollywood celebrity to be summoned by the NCB for questioning in connection with its ongoing investigation into the drugs case that came to light following the arrest of actor Rhea Chakraborty and her brother Showik Chakraborty on charges of procuring drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput.
Ananya’s name has come up in the recent Aryan Khan case, where WhatsApp chats have acted as key evidence against Aryan Khan, despite the fact that Khan was not found with drugs. The NCB stated that it makes no difference whether he was caught with drugs or not because he is not new to drug use and was aware that his friend Arbaaz Merchant was carrying charas.
