The anti-drug central investigating agency, Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has, till now, made remarkable breakthrough in digging out the alleged Bollywood drug nexus linked to late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s ongoing death case. With its extensive interrogations and thorough investigation, the agency not only got its hands on evidences and testimonies that suggested an active drug syndicate in Bollywood but also flunged itself in action and sent summons and questioned many A-listed stars whose names came into light in NCB’s investigation including; Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Rakul Preet Singh and Sara Ali Khan.
Now as per recent buzz, apart from these A-listed star’s names, many bigger and influential names are likely to come out in this alleged drug cartel. Meanwhile, as NCB sources have reportedly claimed to have a list of seven Bollywood bigwigs who are all male and amongst them, filmmaker Karan Johar’s name has also came out, who is now likely to be summoned by the NCB over his 2019 viral house party video which came under agency’s scanner, after the stars present in the video were all alleged to be under the spell of drugs. If the rumours are true, KJo will be summoned for questioning in some days.
Furthermore, amongst these seven male celebrity names, five are said to be male actors while two are said to be film producers, in which KJo’s name could also be listed, as per a media report. Whereas, after facing the NCB officials for nearly 5 hours, Deepika, Sara, Rakul and Shraddha are likely to be summoned for further questioning over Bollywood drug nexus.
Earlier in the day, Karan’s party video, which was sent for forensic testing, has now been termed ‘authentic’ with no tempering or editing to the visuals. To note, this viral controversial video had re-surfaced after the drug angle was found linked to Sushant’s death and had put all the celebrities present in the party including; Deepika Padukone, Shakun Batra, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, Zoya Akhtar, Vicky Kaushal, Ayan Mukerji and Ranbir Kapoor, and many others under agency’s scanner after the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa, who in his police complaint alleged that in Karan’s party everyone was under spell of illegal substances.
Meanwhile, a few days ago, clarifying on his viral party video that was posted by him on his Instagram, Karan released a statement on his Twitter account, a part of which read, “I had already clarified my position way back in 2019 that the allegations were false. In view of the current malicious campaign, I am reiterating that the allegations are completely baseless and false. No narcotics substance was consumed in the party. 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.”
