As per a report by Times Now, the actress has now named 25 A-lister Bollywood celebs in connection with the drug cartel. Chakraborty has also taken three names including Sara Ali Khan.
The other two people that partook in recreational drugs included actor Rakulpreet Singh and designer Simone Khambatta. She reportedly confessed that the three did drugs with her and Rajput.
