Indian actor and star kid Siddhanth Kapoor, son of veteran Bollywood actor Shakti Kapoor and brother of A-list actress Shraddha Kapoor was held by Bengaluru Police on Sunday night for reportedly consuming drugs at a party in the city.
The cops stormed a hotel on MG Road where the party was held after receiving a tip. According to reports, Siddhanth’s sample was one among the six that tested positive. According to police, it was unclear if these persons used drugs before coming to the party or if they used them inside the hotel. Siddhanth Kapoor is younger brother of Bollywood actor Shraddha Kapoor.
Apparently, the Kapoors had no idea which hotel Siddhanth was staying at. The Bengaluru Police revealed that Siddhanth Kapoor was one of the six persons who had reportedly ingested narcotics. Siddhanth tested positive for marijuana. He was taken to Ulsoor Police Station.
Shakti Kapoor has refused to believe that his son Siddhanth Kapoor would’ve consumed drugs after the latter was arrested in Bengaluru. Shakti Kapoor said that his son consuming drugs was just not possible.
Police raided a five-star hotel in Bengaluru late on Sunday and took into custody 35 guests for a medical test. Siddhanth was among the six who were found to have consumed the substance.
Clearing air on whether his son has been arrested or detained, Shakti Kapoor told Hindustan Times, “I’m in Mumbai and I don’t know what is happening. I got to know from news channels only. All I know as of now is that there is no arrest and Siddhanth has only been detained.”
Siddhanth has acted in various films, including Shootout at Wadala and Chehre. He has worked as an assistant director on films such as Bhool Bhulaiyya, and Dhol. Meanwhile, Shraddha Kapoor is now in Spain filming Luv Ranjan’s project alongside Ranbir Kapoor.
