Karan Johar’s statement has been supported by Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Sonam Kapoor, Mini Mathur and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni. The official statement came ahead of a video which was viral online. In the video was of Karan Johar party, many film stars are seen enjoying the party. The allegations were being made that the stars took drugs at this party.
What is said in the statement?
‘On some news channels, print and electronics media and social media platforms, this misguided news is being run that drugs were consumed in the party which Karan Johar gave at his house on 28 July 2019. I made it clear in 2019 itself that these allegations are fake. Now seeing this campaign being run again, I again say that these allegations are baseless and false. No drugs were consumed at that party.
