Filmmaker Karan Johar has now submitted his reply to the Narcotics Control Bureau after the team issued him a notice over a viral video from his infamous 2019 party that allegedly showed drugs being consumed at his house. The investigating agency is now examining the documents they received from Johar to check the veracity of the video footage.
“The notice has been given w.r.t the video which was under circulation. NCB had received a complaint from Manjinder Sirsa in this regard and was marked to Maharashtra Zonal Unit. To check the veracity of the video the notice has been sent- NCB official KPS Malhotra” quoted PTI.
Earlier, the NCB team had received a complaint from Shiromani Akali Dal leader, Manjinder Singh Sirsa regarding the party video at Karan Johar’s house which was attended by several A-listers of Bollywood who were reportedly seen in a ‘drugged’ state. Later his complaint was sent to the agency’s Mumbai Zonal unit, as per a PTI report.
However, after the video went viral on social media, Karan Johar had issued a public statement stated that the reports of drug consumption at his 2019 party were ‘slanderous’ and ‘malicious’.
