In the midst of Bollywood’s big drug abuse expose, an Indian politician has called for investigation on an old video circulating of some of the stars at a party.
The video featuring Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and many others had gone viral a while back with many suggesting the bigwigs looked ‘stoned.’
While the matter was buried a few months later, former Shiromani Akali Dal MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa has brought it up again as he filed a complaint with Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) urging them to investigate the video and the people who attended that party at Karan Johar’s residence.
“I met Sh. Rakesh Asthana, Chief of @narcoticsbureauat BSF head quarter, Delhi regarding submission of complaint for investigation & action against film Producer @karanjohar & others for organizing drug party at his residence in Mumbai That party video must be investigated into!” he wrote on Twitter.
Karan Johar had earlier issued a clarification about the video, saying: “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.”
