Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal‘s girlfriend Gabriella Demetriades’ brother Agisilaos was arrested by NCB in Goa in an alleged drugs case. According to a report, Agisilaos is sent to judicial custody for two weeks. Amid this, Arjun and his girlfriend, are currently holidaying in London and are making headlines. And now, the actor has released a statement in this regard and stated that he is shocked.
Arjun’s statement read, “I’m as shocked and taken aback as you are with this latest development today. It’s unfortunate that my name is being unnecessarily dragged in every publication though I have no association whatsoever. As far as my family and I are concerned, my direct family and I are law-abiding citizens. And while the incident involves a person who is a relative of my partner, I have no other connection or relationship other than that with this person.”
“I request the media to not make headlines using my name as we are NOT related and this is causing hurt and confusion for my own family and the people I have a professional relationship with. I have faith in our legal system and whoever is on the wrong side of the law, should be treated as the judiciary deems fit. My trust is in the system in these matters. Let the law take its course and kindly refrain from attaching my partner’s and my name to something we have nothing to do with. I appreciate all your support and humbly request you to be honest and sensitive in this regard,” the actor added.
On the work front, Arjun Rampal will be next seen in Dhaakad, also featuring Kangana Ranaut. The actor will be seen in a new avatar. Earlier, he had shared pictures and flaunted his new look on Instagram. He wrote in the caption, “A challenging part in a film, needs me to push the envelope. Thank you brother @aalimhakim for helping me create that & @razylivingtheblues to realize that dream. #Dhaakad #letsbeginagain.”
