Filmmaker Karan Johar on Friday took to social media to clarify that no narcotic substance had used in the party that was hosted by Karan Johar on July 28, 2019. Karan released a statement on Instagram, clearly calling the allegations made on him as ‘baseless and false’. He also wrote that he had made this point clear earlier also.

This comes after the former SAD MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa alleged that drugs were consumed at a party that was attended by stars like Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal, Maliaka Arora, etc. A video showing a bunch of actors in a party had gone viral earlier when the MLA Manjinder made the statement. Karan Johar blamed the media channels and social media platforms for misleading information about him and his colleagues. He wrote, “Certain news channels, print/ electronic media and social media platform(s) are wrongly and misleadingly reporting that narcotics were consumed at a party that 1, Karan Johar hosted on July 28, 2019, at my residence. 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.

All these slanderous and malicious statements, news articles, and news clippings have unnecessarily subjected me, my family, and my colleagues, and Dharma Productions, to hatred, contempt, and ridicule.”

Talking about his connection with Kshitij Prasad and Anubhav Chopra, he further added, “1 would like to further state that several media/news channels have been airing news reports that Kshitij Prasad and Anubhav Chopra are my “aides” / “close aides”. I would like to place on record that I do not know these individuals personally and neither of these two individuals are “aides” or “close aides”. NEITHER I, NOR DHARMA PRODUCTIONS CAN BE MADE RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT PEOPLE DO IN THEIR PERSONAL LIVES. THESE ALLEGATIONS DO NOT PERTAIN TO DHARMA PRODUCTIONS.

I wish to further state that Mr. Anubhav Chopra is not an employee at Dharma Productions. He was briefly associated with us for only two months in the capacity of 2nd assistant director for a film, between November 2011 and January 2012 and as assistant director for the short film in January 2013. He has thereafter never been associated with Dharma Productions for any other project.

Mr. Kshitij Ravi Prasad joined Dharmatic Entertainment (sister concern of Dharma Productions) in November 2019 as one of the executive producers on contract basis for a project which eventually did not materialise.”

“However, in the past few days, the media has resorted to distasteful, distorted and false allegations. I hope the members of the media would exercise restraint else I will be left with no option but to legally protect my rights against this baseless attack on me.”In the end, giving an indirect warning to the media channels, Karan Johar wrote that if the media would not restrict its actions then he will end up with no option but to legally protect his rights.
