They were present at the party held at Oakwood hotel in suburban Juhu when approximately 110 grams of cocaine along with MDMA, popularly known as ecstasy, and charas were seized.
Two IPL players -- Rahul Sharma and Wayne Parnell (of Pune Warriors India) -- were among the 96 persons who were detained after the raid on the party. "It is an unfortunate incident...we are innocent. We did not see anyone having drugs or anything of that sort. The crowd was pretty decent," Apurva told PTI.
"We just went to the party at say around 6:25 pm and at 7 pm police came in to check. We were shocked...surprised as we just went to have a good time at the party," he said.
According to Shilpa, there were journalists, scientists and others. "We had no idea it was a rave party," she claimed. "Somewhere, down the line, I feel it is due to the celebrity status that we are targeted. It is the flip of being a celebrity," Apurva said.
The actor duo was taken to various hospitals, where their blood samples were collected. "Shilpa was taken to Bhabha and JJ hospital, while I was taken to Cooper hospital. They took our blood samples and then we were let off. There is no case against us," he said.
"When my blood sample was taken it was not labelled for 45 minutes...I was after them as I did not want it to be swapped. By no way my test could be positive," Shilpa said.
Apurva shot to fame with popular TV show 'Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahi' while wife Shilpa was seen in Ekta Kapoor's 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi'.
