The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 21 summoned Bollywood actor Ananya Panday for questioning at 2 pm today. She arrived at the NCB office with her father Bollywood actor Chunky Panday at around 4 pm and left the premises after two hours of questioning in connection with the Mumbai cruise drug bust.

According to News 18, Ananya Panday has been summoned by the NCB again at 11 am on October 22.

The 22-year-old Bollywood actor is known to be part of the star kid’s social circle and is also a close friend of Shah Rukh Khan’s daughter Suhana Khan.

Earlier in the day, NCB officials had visited her house to conduct searches.

According to media reports, the agency has seized her mobile phone and laptop.

Ananya Panday’s name had reportedly surfaced in one of the WhatsApp chats of a person accused in the Mumbai cruise drugs bust case, in which Aryan Khan was implicated along with 19 others. On October 3, eight people on a cruise ship were arrested after an alleged drug bust.

Ananya Panday made her Bollywood debut in 2019 with the film 'Student of The Year 2’.

The NCB has been cracking down on A-listers after an alleged “Bollywood-drugs link” surfaced after actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death last year. Several high-profile celebrities and socialites have been questioned since by the anti-drugs agency.

Aryan Khan has been denied bail repeatedly by different courts including the special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) court.
