New Delhi: Bollywood actress Shraddha Kapoor’s brother, Siddhanth Kapoor has been detained by the Bengaluru Police for allegedly consuming drugs at a party in the city on Sunday night. He was reportedly partying at a hotel on MG Road, where Bengaluru Police conducted a raid. Siddhanth is among the six people allegedly found to have consumed drugs. Now, a video from the same party is going viral on the internet wherein Siddhanth is seen playing DJ. Bengaluru Police was quoted saying, “Actor Shraddha Kapoor’s brother Siddhanth Kapoor detained during police raid at a rave party in a Bengaluru hotel, last night. He is among the 6 people allegedly found to have consumed drugs.”
Siddhanth made his acting debut with Sanjay Gupta’s crime film Shootout at Wadala and later featured in Anurag Kashyap’s psychological thriller film Ugly, in which he had a cameo role alongside Tejaswini Kolhapure and Ronit Roy. He also featured with his sister Shraddha on Haseena Parkar, which is based on Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena.

The film also starred Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi and Annu Kapoor among others.
Talking about Siddhanth’s involvement in drug consumption at the party, his father and veteran actor Shakti Kapoor said, “I am not aware of anything. I have just gotten up from my sleep and my phone has started ringing continuously. He hasn’t been arrested but detained by the cops for consumption (of drugs). I don’t think there was any possession. I have as much information as it is coming out in the news and I am really troubled by this news.”
In 2020, Shraddha Kapoor was questioned by the Narcotics Control Bureau over alleged possession of drugs after the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. She had starred with the actor in 2019 film Chhichhore.
