Mumbai (Maharashtra) : Actor Ananya Panday was reportedly reprimanded by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Mumbai zonal director Sameer Wankhede for her arriving late at the probe agency’s office on Friday.
Pandey was summoned by NCB for questioning in the ongoing cruise drugs case on Friday at 11 am but the actor could only reach the probe agency’s office after 2 pm along with her father Actor Chunky Panday.
According to the sources in NCB, Wankhede told Ananya that probe agency’s office was not a “production house”.
“You were asked to come at 11.00 am and you are arriving now. Officers are not sitting here, waiting for just you….. This is not your production house, this is the office of a central agency. Come at the time you are called at,” sources quoted Wankhede as saying.
Panday left the NCB office on Friday evening after being questioned in the ongoing cruise drugs case.
She was summoned by the probe agency on Thursday as well.
During the questioning on Thursday, the actor denied the allegations of supplying or consuming drugs.
