As Rhea Chakraborty gets sentenced for 14 days for consuming drugs with her late boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput, Bollywood has joined hands to support Rhea. But what has come across as a bigger picture, is the reaction that the whole public is giving, as if they haven't enjoyed the open drug culture showcased in Bollywood films and music earlier. To refresh everyone's memory, we have come up with some of the recent movies and songs which have showcased injecting intoxicants like it's a normal thing to do in the modern world. More so, have supported and glorified it with background music and heroic actions.
The most recent film in Bollywood based on the real-life of actor Sanjay Dutt. The film's first half is full of Sanjay Dutt consuming drugs and naming all of them proudly in front of his parents and friends. He got introduced to it by one of his friends and later goes on to consuming it without repercussions. There are some scenes too which have been portrayed comically (Ranbir Kapoor putting a toilet seat cover on Sonam's neck) so that the audience could enjoy it.
Go Goa Gone
It is one of the most popular films among the youth and casts actors like Saif Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu and others. The movie openly shows the actors taking drugs and going high and that is supposed to be funny for the audience.
Just like Go Goa Gone, Delhi Belly is a highly intoxicated film with throughout usage of various forms of drugs and foul language. During the time of its release, it became more a cult film with people enjoying its songs like 'Babaji Ki Booty' and 'DK Bose'. Don't forget the lyrics of the song which goes like, "Jo bhari chilam bane hum hero
Life lage film samasya zero
Daaru banno ki gandi harqat
Booti upar wale ki barkat
Babaji ki booti la la la
Babaji ki booti la la la. Oh o let me take you to the babaji. Sukh gunjan babaji, dukh bhanjan babaji Ae ae wonderful babaji, powerful babji He is bootiful babaji he."
Another Bollywood song which instantly comes to mind is Manali Trance. The song's lyrics goes like, "Badla mizaaj mera phookte hi grass. Grass lage hai mohe sabka ilaaj. Thoda toh main jhoom loon iske nashe mein. C'mon DJ laga de dubstep trance. Oh kaisa lage hai mohe kaise main bataun. Laage hai sab kuch upside down. Tu bhi kheench do puff
Manali ka hai ye stuff
Tu bhi kheench do puff
Manali ka hai ye stuff."
The film that already gained a lot of spotlight for its music and alleged misogyny, Kabir Singh consuming drugs was supported by peppy background music and heroic portrayal. People loved the scenes where Shahid ran after his maid and consumed drugs like a maniac.
