Before leaving for Mumbai, Deepika also met members from her legal team at the resort, sources said. The sudden dash to Mumbai comes in wake of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) probe, in which a 2017 WhatsApp message allegedly between the actor and her talent manager Karishma Prakash surfaced where the duo was reportedly discussing banned substances. Prakash is a colleague of Jaya Saha at Kwan. Saha has been questioned by all federal agencies in the Sushant probe and is one of the main accused in the FIR filed by the late actor’s father.
