The filmmaker pointed out that he had clarified that the allegations against him are false, in 2019 itself. Karan Johar has added that some media platforms are wrongly and misleadingly reporting that narcotics were consumed at a party, that was held at his residence on July 28, 2019.
He further added that he does not consume narcotics or promote or encourage the consumption of the same. Karan Johar has also made it clear that Anubhav Chopra and Kshitij Prasad are not his close aides, as a few media channels suggested recently. The filmmaker stated that either he or Dharma Productions are not responsible for what people do in their personal lives. He concluded the official statement, suggesting that he will move legally against this baseless attack on him, to protect his rights, if the media did not restrain from spreading false allegations.
