National award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut has often been vocal about public issues. Be it promoting the Swachh Bharat Mission or voicing against corruption, she has never shied away from expressing her opinions. In the latest development, the 36-year-old actress spoke about the Mahadev Online Betting App Case and hit out at those involved in it.
What’s the news?
Mahadev Online Betting App Casr is grabbing headlines these days. Reportedly, a huge number of Bollywood celebrities are involved in it and are now under the radar of the Enforcement Directorate. Actors Ranbir Kapoor, Sonu Sood, Huma Qureshi, comedians Kapil Sharma and Bharti Singh and singer Neha Kakkar are accused in the matter.
While no celebrity has officially responded to the news development, Kangana Ranaut has taken the center stage and voiced her opinion on the hard-hitting matter. In her Instagram Story today, she gave a stern message to those behind the scam and said, “This endorsement came to me almost 6 times over a span of one year. Every time, they added several crores to the offer to buy me, but I said NO each time. Look, integrity is not good just for your conscience anymore. Yeh naya Bharat hai! Sudhar jao nahi toh sudhar diye jaoge.”
What is the scam all about?
The Enforcement Directorate took notice of an extravagant wedding that took place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in February. The event, held in Ras Al-Khaimah, drew attention as the entire expenditure, amounting to around Rs 200 crore, was reportedly paid in cash. Sourabh Chandrakar, a promoter of the Mahadev Online Book Betting app, organized the wedding and went to the extent of hiring private jets to transport family members from Nagpur to the UAE. Additionally, he allegedly paid Indian film industry celebrities to perform at the event, as per the Enforcement Directorate's findings.
Investigation in the case is underway.
