Police raided a rave party in Nashik, Maharashtra, and arrested a large drug syndicate, involving many actors from the film and television industry. At this party, four Bollywood and South film actresses have also been arrested, including the famous Bigg Boss actress Hina Panchal. Hina Panchal is known for her work in Hindi and Marathi films.

Not only this, she also participated in the dating reality television series ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karoge’ last year.
Although the big parties continue to happen every day in Mayanagari, in recent years the trend for rave parties has increased rapidly. When the police became tougher in Mumbai, the stars went to neighboring cities to organize such parties, in which alcohol, liquor and drugs are openly served. Goa is a favorite destination for them. The deep connection between Bollywood and drugs has been revealed many times before, but after the mysterious death of Sushant Singh Rajput, there was a lot of uproar about it. The names of many great movie stars came out. Artists such as Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan and Bharti Singh were also questioned.
Before the Sushant scandal, the names of these movie stars appeared in the drug case.
