Mumbai: The Mumbai unit of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) is investigating drug-related cases in Bollywood. A video related to a house party held in July 2019 at the home of Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar went viral on social media. In the case, Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa had also lodged a complaint with the NCB over the video. He alleged that Karan Johar is the king of Bollywood drug cartels.
On the basis of the complaint, the NCB on Wednesday evening sent a notice to Karan Johar under Section 67 (b) of the NDPS asking the party to bring a video of the camera that was made with the mobile or camera. . However, Karan Johar is not a suspect in any NCB case.
According to NCB sources, according to the notice, Karan Johar does not need to come in person, but he can send any of his representatives to the NCB office with all the information. The NCB said that on Friday, Karan Johar’s legal team came to the NCB office and answered questions related to the party.
Following the notice, Karan Johar’s lawyer Raghav Gupta arrived at the NCB office on Friday and laid his belongings before the investigating officers. According to sources, Karan Johar’s lawyer has not given a satisfactory answer in any way.
Let me tell you that the video of the party that went viral was shot by Karan Johar himself, which featured big stars like Ranbir Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Varun Dhawan, Vicky Kaushal, Zoya Akhtar, Ayan Mukherjee, Arjun Kapoor, Karthik Aryan and Deepika Padukone.
After the video went viral, Karan Johar released an official statement saying, “I neither take drugs nor promote them.” He also said that there was a party at his house on July 28, 2019. But talking about drug use is completely wrong.
Let me tell you that during an investigation into a drug-related case, the NCB detained Kshitij Prasad, the executive producer of Karan Johar’s company Dharma Productions.
