Model and item girl Rozlyn Khan who blew the lid of the drug syndicate on the eve of New Year has been recognised by an NGO organisation.
The 18th Lion’s International Gold Awards has conferred Rozlyn with the celebrity whistle blower award of the year.
“I saw her news reports in media on how Rozlyn unearthed the Modus operandi of drugs syndicate during the News year parties and was impressed with her brave attitude
of being an responsible citizen,” says Lion Raju V Manwani, International Director Endorsee for Lions Club International.
” I am grateful to the media and the Mumbai Police who initiated prompt action by beefing up the security at hotels where celebrity performances where held leading to
drug free events on the new year eve,” adds Rozlyn
Critically acclaimed actress Divya Dutta who handed over the trophy to Rozlyn added, ” I appreciate the efforts and since such alert citizens help in getting an
serious offence noticed amongst law enforcers”.
Filmmaker Rohit Shetty who won an award for his film Singham also appreciated the bold role played by the model.
The awards ceremony held in Mumbai was attended by Rani Mukherji, Himmesh Reshamiya, R Mahadevan, Divya Dutta, Bappi Lahri, Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar with Rohit
Dhawan and Rohit Shetty.
Recently, there were reports circulating on how the drug mafia had intended to smuggle contraband at Mumbai’s New Year parties with the help of models performing at
the venue. Model Rozlyn Khan was one of the performers, and was allegedly offered Rs 12 lakh to carry drugs to the venue in a bag.
Now, ad and documentary filmmaker Sucheta Bhatia is making a 45-minute short film titled Bollywood’s Underbelly, on the same subject. “I found the subject interesting
after reading the news reports. Rozlyn unearthed a modus operandi that few are aware of. We will shoot with real drug peddlers and police officials and scan shady
joints. Rozlyn will play the main lead. Excerpts of channel interviews will also be incorporated.”
Rozlyn was recently awarded the Celebrity Whistleblower trophy at Lions Gold Awards and Bhatia will add Rozlyn’s video from the ceremony. She says, “The film will
start from the awards night.”
Rozlyn elaborates, “It is a big achievement to be conferred with the award. I am grateful to the media and the Mumbai Police who initiated prompt action by beefing up
the security at hotels where celebrity performances were taking place. This lead to a drug-free New Year’s eve.”
