Months after the allegations of Karan Johar holding drug parties at his home, Narcotics Bureau Control has just sent him a notice and asked this Bollywood producer to explain about the alleged drug party in July, 2019. At the event, people could see many famous names in the industry in a seemingly drugged state, including Deepika Padukone and Malaika Arora.

The movement from NCB is related to the on-going anti-drug investigation after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.

During the probe, several Bollywood actresses have been summoned, such as Deepika, Shraddha Kapoor and Sara Ali Khan. However, there’s no evidence of these heroines consuming the illegal powder yet. Only Deepika’s ex-manager was interrogated again and again in relation to the incident.

Statements from Karan Johar earlier

In fact, Karan Johar once mentioned the party in September this year. He released a public statement to insist that the reports of consuming drugs in his party were ‘slanderous’ and ‘malicious.’

The producer refers to previous reports on drug consumption as baseless and malicious.

The producer affirmed he did not consume drugs as well as not promote narcotics consumption. The reports of the alleged drug party targeted him, his family and colleagues at Dharma Productions to contempt and hatred.

Here’s his full statement back then:

"These slanderous and malicious statements, news articles, and news clippings have unnecessarily subjected me, my family, and my colleagues, and Dharma Productions, to hatred, contempt and ridicule. I would like to unequivocally once again state that I do not consume narcotics and I do not promote or encourage consumption of any such substance."

Previously, Karan Johar was claimed to know Anubhav Chopra and Kshitij Prasad who were being investigated for narcotics consumption and distribution. However, Johar said he did not know any of these two men, calling media reports as baseless.

He further clarified that these people used to join companies that link to Dharma Productions for independent projects in the past.
