Recently, the set of a popular television soap was raided for alleged illegal activities. According to a source, "The officials arrived one fine morning stating that they had received information about use of narcotics and other illegal substances. They conducted a thorough inspection of the set and also interrogated almost everyone associated with the show, including the actors. As a result, the shot had to be cancelled that day."
The show has been running for a long time on the small screen and not very long ago, the lead actress was replaced. Post the raid, the makers concerned decided to beef up the security on the set and members of the unit members as well as the cast are being frisked on a daily basis to prevent any kind of drug use. "Proper checking is being carried out every time someone enters or leaves the set. Many other production houses are similarly exercising caution to keep the sleuths at bay," adds the source.
