Sunil Pal, Raju Shrivastav express shock over Bharti Singh, Haarsh Limbichiyaa’s arrest
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) have given Bharti Singh and Haarsh Limbichiyaa judicial custody till December 4. They were arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with the alleged consumption of cannabis.
Bharti’s peers and friends Sunil Pal and Raju Shrivastav have expressed shock over Bharti and Haarsh being arrested. They gave an interview to Zee News in which Sunil credited Bharti for his success.
“I am shocked at the news. It is traumatic for me because I have seen Bharti become successful from nothing. I was the one who introduced her on the Great Indian Laughter Challenge and I saw how popular she got with her work. I was happy, she thought of me as a brother and greeted me with folded hands,” said Sunil.
He also added, “She is a sanskari (cultured) and sweet girl. Even Haarsh is a good boy. So how and where all of this started, what sort of groupism this is that is provoking her to take drugs, I am very shocked and sad.”
Raju, on the other hand, questioned if taking drugs would make someone a good comedian or energetic. He said, “Can Bharti or her husband Harsh do something like this? My heart is not ready to accept it. What is this? People love you so much, millions of people call you their idol, put your photos on their mobiles, hang them in their homes. They want to be like you and they have been tricked. What is the need to do all of this? It’s not like taking drugs will make you good comedians, or it will give you energy.”
Asking what comedy it is, he added, “I am so sad. I was here to defend her on your show, that our Bharti is not like that and that she is a pure artist. But now I see the news that Bharti has been arrest, she has confessed, the police got proof and confiscated ganja from her home. What is even happening? What kind of comedy is this? Where is our film world going?”
