New Delhi [India], October 3 (ANI): Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty on Sunday dismissed speculations around the drug seizure on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast last night as "mere speculations" and said Bollywood's name is always dragged into such things.

A team busted an alleged drugs party on the Cordelia Cruise ship which was on its way to Goa on Saturday night and detained eight people.
