The MLA Maninder Sirsa claimed the video shared by Karan Johar was the proof of drugs been used in the party and he later filed a police complaint too. Karan Johar remained silent during the entire episode. Now weeks later in a recent interview with Rajeev Masand, Karan Johar angrily reacts to baseless accusation.
He said, “There were achieving members of the industry who were having an easy night out after a hard week of work, having a good time. I took that video with all the earnestness… would I be putting out that video if there was anything happening at all, I am not stupid.”
On allegations about Vicky Kaushal of using powder, Karan furiously responded “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.”
Kalank producer explained that Vicky was apparently recovering from dengue and drinking hot water and lemon. He said, “My mother, 5 minutes before this video, was sitting with us. It was that kind of a family, happy, social gathering, where friends were sitting and having a good time and we were listening to some music, having some good food and having good conversational energy there. There was nothing else going on.”
He further said, “I don’t react very well to these baseless accusations because that’s what they were, baseless. I told them also… I am not taking this very kindly, the next time where baseless accusations, I will take the legal route. You cannot mar our solid reputations, our sincere reputations our committed reputations just because you are presuming something. You cannot put out a baseless accusation that has no base, no fact, no truth, no reality and try and mar us and our reputations, it’s ridiculous.”
