In yet another reaction to the drug probe being done in the Hindi film industry, Raveena Tandon said that celebrities are soft targets and that there are bigger fish involved. She alleged that the drug supply cannot happen without the blessing of local authorities and pointed out that if a war on drugs has to be declared, it should be attacked from the root up.
Raveena took to her Twitter handle to write, "The 'Big Guys' In my tweet. No drug supplying can happen without the ashirwad (blessings) of local authorities.Those are the Big fish that swim away unquestioned.If a Journo can reach the suppliers on stings. Can't the authorities sniff them out? Celebrities are soft targets."
