Karan Johar has been under the scanner ever since Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa had alleged that the filmmaker along with other celebrities had consumed drugs at a party hosted at his residence in 2019. The NCB had issued a notice to Johar to share details about the said party based on the complaint. In his response to the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), Karan Johar has denied any use of drugs at his party in 2019.
According to senior NCB officials, wishing not to be named, said that Johar in his reply through his advocate denied of usage of any kind of drugs at the party hosted by him. However, the official said that they were studying the response of Johar to the drug law enforcement agency.
Sirsa had approached the NCB in September this year over the alleged drug party hosted at Johar's residence in 2019 where several top actors were in attendance including Deepika Padukone, Arjun Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Varun Dhawan, Ranbir Kapoor, Malaika Arora, among others.
The NCB in the last few months has questioned several film personalities in connection with separate drug cases related to Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's death and other cases.
Johar was subjected to immense social media trolling after the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput earlier this year. The filmmaker was targeted by netizens for allegedly propagating nepotism within the film industry. Netizens once again brought up the topic on Friday, venting out their anger on the filmmaker.
"Koffee with NCB. This must be really interesting than his ridiculous show koffe with #KaranJohar," tweeted a user. "Roses are Red... Violets are Blue...Let's Destroy their Egos2gether Me and You....Let's Clean BOLLYWOOD Me and You #KaranJohar," wrote another user. "Has #NCB given time for #KaranJohar to wipe out the evidence from his house? Why no sudden raid ? It's an eyewash. #JusticeForSushantSinghRajput #BollywoodMafia #BoycottBollywoodDruggies," wrote another user.
