Filmmaker Karan Johar has issued an official statement to refute all the allegations about consumption of drugs at his house party in 2019 that were doing the rounds on the internet. The party was attended by Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Arjun Kapoor and other top Bollywood celebrities.

He wrote, “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, ENCOURAGE CONSUMPTION OF ANY SUCH SUBSTANCE.”

He also clarified about the reports which suggested involvement of his employees in the drug case. Reportedly, Kshitij Prasad of Dharma Production has been interrogated and arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau. Another individual named Anubhav Chopra who worked for the production house in 2011-12 was allowed to go home by the agency. Talking about the same Karan stated, “Anubhav Chopra is not an employee of Dharma Productions. He was briefly associated with us for only two months in the capacity of 2nd assistant director for a film in 2011-12 and as an assistant director for a short film in January 2013.”

KJo further added, “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.”

The filmmaker concluded his statement and mentioned, “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.”
