On Bollywood & Drugs, Sirsa 'will File Case On Mumbai Cops' Post NCB Plaint On Karan Johar

A day after Manjinder Sirsa registered a complaint over Karan Johar's 2019 party with NCB, he has spoken to Republic TV and said that 'big names will be out'

A day after SAD leader Manjinder Sirsa met Director General of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) Rakesh Asthana and registered a complaint against director/producer Karan Johar and other big Bollywood stars for allegedly organizing a drug party, he has now spoken to Republic TV. Sirsa's reference is to a party that had allegedly taken place where Karan Johar and other Bollywood celebrities were present from which a video had emerged over which a debate on drugs had been triggered.

Manjinder Sirsa in conversation with Republic's Executive Editor Niranjan Narayanaswamy said, "I met NCB chief and stressed on reinvestigating the matter of drugs of 2019. NCB chief gave assurance of investigation into Karan Johar's party in 2019. Mumbai Police had not responded to Karan Johar house party complaint filed by me last year. There must be two reasons - one, they(Mumbai Police) are hand in glove with them and secondly, that drug is a very common thing."

Sirsa added, "Bollywood must accept that there are black sheep and they need to throw them out. Bollywood should stand with NCB. I am hopeful that the NCB investigation will bring out the big names. I won't stop in the coming days. I'll move to court against Mumbai Police, filing a formal complaint against Mumbai Police also."

Viral Video from Karan Johar's party

In July last year, Karan Johar had hosted a Saturday night party, a video of which went viral. Those seen in the clip were Deepika, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Mira Rajput Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Natasha Dalal, Zoya Akhtar, Milind Deora's wife Pooja Shetty Deora, Vicky Kaushal, Ayan Mukerji and Ranbir Kapoor.

The video which was being recorded by Karan Johar began with Deepika posing with director Shakun Batra (Kapoor and Sons fame), followed by Malaika's wink, to Karan zooming on Malaika's boyfriend Arjun Kapoor who is seen talking to Shahid Kapoor. Karan's camera then focuses on Varun Dhawan who is busy chatting with Zoya Akhtar. The camera then shifts to Vicky Kaushal who instantly rubs his nose and Karan pans the camera to director Ayan Mukerji who is seen hiding something behind him. The video ends with Ranbir Kapoor asking 'What is Karan recording' and Mira Rajput waving at the camera. The topic of what is visible either on or below the table had become a matter of some debate, with some opining that it was the mere reflection of light whereas others claimed it appeared to be a pattern of white substance.
