New Delhi: Bollywood actor and assistant director Siddhant Kapoor, son of veteran film star Shakti Kapoor, who was arrested by the Bangalore police on drug charges during a rave party, was released on bail on Monday night, police said. Now, a day after getting bail, the actor looks set to return home to Mumbai. He shared a selfie on his plane in his Instagram story, followed by an emoji of folded hands.

Siddhant Kapoor, son of Shakti Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s elder brother, was arrested by Bangalore police during a raid on a five-star hotel last week. He reportedly took drugs at a party in the city on June 12. Preliminary reports say the actor was arrested along with six others after being tested for drug use at a rave party on the city’s MG Road.


However, according to the IANS, Siddhant, who appeared before the police in connection with the drug case, pleaded not guilty during the interrogation and claimed that someone had given him drugs and cigarettes mixed with drugs. He told investigators he did not know about the drug. “Siddhant Kapoor said he had drugs in his drinks and he did not know it. I have been to Bangalore several times as a DJ to attend parties. This is the fourth time he has been to a hotel. We have got a guest list. Suspicious persons will be summoned for questioning,” said DCP (East) Bhima.

Medical tests confirmed that Siddhant Kapoor and others had ingested cocaine

On the other hand, Deputy Commissioner of Police Dr Bhimashankar S Gulet told reporters, “Siddhant Kapoor, son of Bollywood actor Shakti Kapoor, has been confirmed to have taken drugs. The blood test report confirmed that he had drugs. So, he has been brought to Ulsoor. police station.”

Police seized seven ‘ecstasy’ pills and a packet of cannabis from the party. About 35 people were present at the party where Siddhant was invited. They all underwent a medical examination. Five of them, including the brother of actress Shraddha Kapoor, were found to be under the influence of drugs. The accused have been booked under sections 22A, 22B and 27B of the Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.

In 2020, the police discovered drug use in a section of the Kannada film industry. They later arrested actors Ragini Dwivedi and Sanjana Kalrani and Aditya Alva, son of the late former minister Jeevaraj Alva.
