Just a few weeks ago, filmmaker Karan Johar had fallen into a huge controversy after SAD MLA Sirsa accused him of hosting a drug party with the who’s who of Bollywood. Vicky Kaushal who was also present at the party, opened up and shared how he was traumatized by the accusation and also said that all these accusations were completely baseless.
KJo posted a video from his party that featured celebs like Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal, Varun Dhawan, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor amongst others. Manjinder Singh Sirsa, a SAD MLA from Delhi, accused all these celebs of being in a ‘drugged state’ and demanded that they all take a drug test to prove their innocence.
Vicky in a F2F with Pinkvilla put forward his side of the facts:
“What I understand is that people who don’t know you personally, see something and make an assumption..that’s completely fine. We all do that. But factualising assumptions..It’s a big leap to take and that’s not fair all the time.”
“We all knew the video was being taken and five minutes before the video was shot Karan’s mom was with us. The video was put up. Next day I leave for Arunachal Pradesh. I was with the army for the next four days in the hills where there is no network. So I have no clue of what’s going on.”
“I returned and checked Twitter and I was like ‘Hain ji?’ ‘What?’. FIR…open letter..ye woh. Of course, it had a huge effect on me. It is not nice to be called those names by people.”
Have a look at Sirsa’s tweet below:
