Karan Johar opens up about allegations of organizing drug party for Bollywood celebs
MUMBAI: Indian filmmaker Karan Johar has finally broken his silence about allegations of organising a drug party for Bollywood celebs.
The director had posted a video on Instagram in which many Bollywood A-listers like Deepika Padukone, Varun Dhawan, Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Zoya Akhtar and Ayan Mukerji among others were seen chilling out at his residence in Mumbai.
BJP politicians and many other people alleged that the actors seemed under the influence of drugs in the video. However, now, Karan has called all such allegations ‘ridiculous.’
In his latest interview with Rajeev Masand, the ace director gave an explained statement on the entire controversy. First, he asserted that why would he upload a video online if it shows a drug party being organised at his place.
On the allegations that Vicky looked strictly under the influence of a substance, he said that the Uri-actor was recovering from dengue and was having ‘hot water and lime.’
“Apparently you are not allowed to scratch your nose. Apparently, you are not allowed to put your phone in your back pocket. Apparently, a shadow of light is perceived to be some kind of powder,” he said
Issuing a warning that the next time he finds any such baseless accusations surfacing around, he is going to take the legal route, Karan said that no one has any right to pull him down and other people who have worked hard in the industry to gain a solid reputation.
