The investigation of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) will now be getting wider as we came across a massive development in this drug cartel in Bollywood. So far, Bollywood actresses like Deepika Padukone, Sharddha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh and Sara Ali Khan's names have popped out but the latest development, in this case, claims that seven more big names have emerged and are under the scanner, claimed by NCB source. According to CNN News 18, NCB sources have claimed that these seven names are all male and amongst 7, Karan Johar's name has cropped out. Reportedly, the filmmaker is now likely to be summoned by the NCB. After his 2019 house party video went viral and came under the scanner, Karan Johar is said to be summoned for questioning in some days.
Amongst 7, five are said to be male actors while two are said to be male producers and KJo could be one of them, as reported by CNN News 18. Just sometime back, we reported that bigger and more influential names from Bollywood than Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and more have emerged and they are likely to come into view in NCB's phase 3 probe. Well, with this latest piece, it is said that they are likely to be summoned by NCB for questioning in this drug nexus in Bollywood.
Even though the party video pitted KJo against a huge controversy, the forensics have termed the video 'authentic' with no tempering or editing is done. However, NCB will now take further decision.
Meanwhile, a few days ago, Karan Johar had tweeted his statement on social media, clarifying on the viral party video. A part of his statement read, "I had already clarified my position way back in 2019 that the allegations were false. In view of the current malicious campaign, I am reiterating that the allegations are completely baseless and false. No narcotics substance was consumed in the party. I would like to unequivocally once again state that I do not consume narcotics and I do not promote or encourage consumption of any such substance."
