If only Karan Johar knew what a huge controversy his house party video would have turned into, he never would have posted it on social media! The video that saw the A-listers of Bollywood such as Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and many more celebrities having a good time, soon turned out to be a nightmare for all those who were a part of that video. Soon after the video was posted, Akali Dal spokesperson Manjinder Singh Sirsa shared the video and also alleged the Bollywood stars to have been in a drugged state. A lot of people slammed them, while many even came out in support of the actors.
A few days ago, filmmaker Karan Johar finally came out and spoke about the controversial matter. He rubbished all the allegations and denied that any of them were in a drugged state. Vicky Kaushal, who was a part of the video and was captured at the wrong time as he scratched his nose, was accused for using powder. Now he has opened up on all these allegations in an interview with Pinkvilla and said that it is understandable when people who don’t know them personally saw the video and made these assumptions. However, he says that factualizing these assumptions is not fair. He further added, "We all knew the video was being taken and five minutes before the video was shot Karan's mom was with us. The video was put up. Next day I leave for Arunachal Pradesh. I was with the army for the next four days in the hills where there is no network. So I have no clue of what's going on." Vicky Kaushal also said that on returning he checked his Twitter and was bombarded with the news of FIR and open letter and had a huge effect on him.
Karan Johar had also previously reacted on Vicky Kaushal being accused of doing drugs in the video and shared that the actor was actually recovering from dengue and was drinking hot water and lemon. He also added that he is not stupid enough to put out that video if drugs were indeed used.
