Karan Johar

Filmmaker Karan Johar on Friday maintained that no drugs were consumed in his house party last year in response to the notice issued by the Narcotics Control Bureau(NCB) questioning the party and the viral video, the news agency PTI reported.

The anti-drug agency is in the process of examining and cross-checking Johar’s statement, said  Sameer Wankhede, Zonal Director of NCB. Johar’s written statement with additional photos and videos from the party was handed over to the agency by his lawyer at the agency’s office this morning.

Johar was issued a notice by the NCB officials on Thursday, where the agency had sought details regarding the 2019 party hosted at his residence.The action was taken after a complaint was lodged by Shiromani Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa alleging that drugs were consumed in the video in question.

In July last year, Karan Johar organised a house party which was attended by the likes of Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal, Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora among others. The video from the party went viral and landed into controversy when Sirsa put out an allegation that the actors present apparently looked in a high state.

Later in September, Sirsa asked NCB chief Rakesh Asthana to launch an investigation into the video. Reacting to it, Johar then issued a public statement saying the reports of drug consumption were malicious and slanderous.

However, the allegations resurfaced amid the furore over Sushant Singh Rajput death, when NCB began investigating the drug angel in his death case. Johar again issued a public statement saying that certain news channels and social media platforms are wrongly reporting the narcotics agency that drugs were consumed at his party. He reiterated that the allegations were baseless and false.

After the NCB began conducting an anti-drug probe in Sushant Singh death case, several Bollywood personalities came under the scanner during the investigation. Actors likes Deepika Padukone, Shraddha Kapoor, Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh, Arjun Rampal among others have been questioned by theanti-drug agency.

Prakash Raj’s dig on Akshay Kumar’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj look, asks, electric bulb kaise aa gaye?

Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar has been receiving harsh criticism ever since he presented his first look as Chhatrapati Shivaji in his Marathi debut, historical drama Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat directed by Mahesh Manjrekar. Now, Prakash Raj has ridiculed the actor venomously for both his appearance and the error with the electric light.

In the opening scene of the movie, Akshay Kumar as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the frame of a chandelier can be seen. There is a problem in it because it is obvious that the chandelier has light bulbs installed all over its rim. The observations are based on the fact that the creation of the light bulb happened much later than Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s reign (1630-1680).

Prakash shared a photo of Akshay’s first look following the error on Twitter. He also uploaded a meme featuring Akshay and PM Narendra Modi.

“Shivaji Maharaj ke time electric bulb kaise aa gaye gutka khor,” Modi asks Akshay. “Waise hi jaise aapke pass 1988 mein digital camera aa gaya thi,” Akshay responds. “Mann Ki Baat,” Prakash Raj captioned his Twitter post, followed by the hashtag #JustAsking.

The cast of the film includes Jay Dudhane, Utkarsha Shinde, Vishal Nikam, Virat Madke, Hardik Joshi, Satya, Akshay, Nawab Khan, and Praveen Tarde. On Diwali 2023, the Mahesh Manjrekar-directed movie, a Qureshi Production, is slated to premiere in Marathi, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.

Akshay posted a picture on social media in which he is praying in front of a picture of Shivaji Maharaj, and his reflection confirms that the actor is prepared to perform his second-period drama.

In the caption of his picture, he wrote that he was beginning the Vedat Marathe Veer Daudale Saat’s shooting and that it was a matter of pride for him to play the role of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj ji. He added that he would do his best by taking inspiration from Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s life and with the blessings of Maa Jijau.
