“People are earning their bread and butter by (selling drugs and) destroying kids’ lives; I think that’s DISGUSTING” – Salman Khan

Bollywood News

Bollywood Hungama was the first one to report in December 2020 that Salman Khan would be locking horns with the drug mafia in Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai. Incidentally, the issue of drugs came into spotlight last year after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) interrogated celebs who were alleged to have consumed the banned substance. All of them were let off as there was no evidence against them. But the NCB did arrest several people involved in the peddling and selling of drugs. The media reported about this case extensively and hence, the issue not just got a lot of attention but is memorable even today.

Incidentally, Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai’s shoot was almost completed by February 2020, before the drugs racket was unearthed. It would have got wrapped up in March 2020 and would have released in May 2020 if the Coronavirus pandemic had not led to a lockdown and subsequent closure of cinemas.

Yesterday, Salman Khan spoke to a select group of journalists about Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai, which is all set to release on May 13. When asked about the drug angle in the film, he said, “Drug abuse problem has been there for the longest time. Before the drug racket got exposed in Maharashtra, we had already completed the film. I am totally against drugs…especially against people who sell it, who are aware of it and yet don’t do anything about it. Consuming, meow meow, cocaine, smack, heroin, ecstasy etc is not okay at all. Abroad, they have medicated marijuana and CBD oil which is used for health purposes. In India, drugs are mostly misused and abused. People are earning their bread and butter by destroying kids’ lives and I think that’s disgusting.”

He further added, “We have nephews and nieces in our families who are very young and we are constantly afraid that they might get influenced by some of their friends who might be into (drugs). That friend will always encourage another person to take it so that he’s not the only one doing it. But consuming drugs is not a one-off thing. As soon as you get hooked on it, you are done. Your body and your mind both would crave for it. Hence, you have to be ten times stronger to resist the temptation. Sadly, most don’t have that will power and ultimately, their parents and their families have to go through a lot. They themselves also suffer so much. So yeah, this is an issue that we have touched in Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai. The plot is that he makes a commitment to this child whose friend dies. And then he goes and cleans the city.”

Directed by Prabhudheva, Radhe - Your Most Wanted Bhai also stars Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff.
