The dramatic turn of events occurred after Rhea Chakraborty’s talent manager Jaya Saha was busted in the alleged drug racket in Bollywood. She admitted that she had procured CBD oil, which is banned in India, for Shraddha Kapoor. She also revealed that she had ordered the CBD oil for Sushant Singh Rajput, Rhea, Madhu Mantena and herself.
Jaya Saha, who works for Kwan Management agency, had revealed in her statement to NCB that she last spoke to Sushant Singh Rajput on June 5, 2020, regarding a film. Although the actor liked the script, he had disagreements with the signing amount. She also revealed that she had met the late actor in March 2020 when he was not keeping well. She also knew about his depression when the actor had revealed it to her back in December.
