A few weeks back, filmmaker Karan Johar had fallen into a huge controversy after an MLA accused him of hosting a drug party with the who's who of Bollywood. Vicky Kaushal, who was also at the party, recently opened up about how he was traumatised by the accusation and said that there was no such thing going on at the party.
Karan had shared a video from his party which featured celebs like Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal, Varun Dhawan, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor and others. An MLA jumped the gun and accused the celebs of being in a 'drugged state' and demanded that they all take a drug test to prove their innocence.
Vicky spoke to Pinkvilla about his view on the fuss created around this topic and said, "What I understand is that people who don't know you personally, see something and make an assumption..that's completely fine. We all do that. But factualising assumptions..It's a big leap to take and that's not fair all the time."
He narrated his side of the story, and said, "We all knew the video was being taken and five minutes before the video was shot Karan's mom was with us. The video was put up. Next day I leave for Arunachal Pradesh. I was with the army for the next four days in the hills where there is no network. So I have no clue of what's going on."
"I returned and checked Twitter and I was like 'Hain ji?' 'What?'. FIR...open letter..ye woh. Of course, it had a huge effect on me. It is not nice to be called those names by people," he added.
