Karan Johar under Narcotics Control Bureau scanner for hosting alleged drug party

Filmmaker Karan Johar is now under the scanner of Narcotics Control Bureau (NBC) for a party which took place at his place, a year ago. Last year, a video from the said party had surfaced on social media in which several well known Bollywood faces were seen behaving unusually. Some suggested that they were in fact intoxicated.

Vicky Kaushal, Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Zoya Akhtar, Ayan Mukerji, Mira Rajput, Shakun Batra among others were seen in the party.

After watching the video, many on social media back then had alleged that drugs were being consumed in the party. Some on social media had even pointed to unusual behavior of some of guests. For instance, many had pointed to actor Vicky Kaushal unusually rubbing his nose and some “white” substance near to him. And now, the video finds itself under the scanner of NCB.

According to a report by the DNA, Mumbai unit of NCB has already started probing into the video. They are checking whether the video is genuine or doctored. Though the chances of latter are meager, given that the video was shared by none other than the host of the party himself, Karan Johar. Once established that there are no doctored parts, the NCB will proceed with the investigation.

However it may be noted that Johar himself has rubbished the drug allegations whenever asked about it since the party last year. Karan Johar questioned if he would put up a video if there were drugs involved, while Vicky had shared that Karan Johar’s mother was with them just five minutes before taking the video. Karan had said that what people assumed drugs, was a reflection of light, and that Vicky rubbed his nose because he was recovering from dengue.
