MUMBAI: Soon after actor Deepika Padukone reached the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) guest house in south Mumbai on Saturday to record her statement in drugs probe linked to film star Sushant Singh Rajput's death, her manager Karishma Prakash also arrived there for questioning, an official said.

He said that on Friday, the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had questioned Prakash for around seven hours. "Prakash reached the NCB guest house just before 11 am," he said, adding that Deepika had arrived there at 9:50 am.
