#MUMBAI: Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar, in an interview with Rajeev Masand, has opened up about the recent controversy where celebrities at his house party were accused of being drugged.
He talked about how people reacted to the behind-the-scenes video of the party.
“Apparently, you’re not allowed to scratch your nose, you’re not allowed to put your phone in your back pocket, and a shadow of light is perceived to be some kind of a powder. My mother lives 10 metres away from that hall. Am I stupid to put out a video if something like this is happening? It was a social gathering where friends were having good conversations and my mother was sitting with us just 10 minutes before this video was taken,” said Karan about the drug controversy.

The reason I didn’t put out any statement is because I thought why do I need to justify a house party that was a casual get together of good friends having a good conversational time. The next time there are baseless accusations, I will be taking the legal route, because this is ridiculous. You cannot mar our solid reputations, just because you are presuming something.Karan Johar
He added, “Vicky (Kaushal) was recovering from dengue. These baseless accusations really annoy me, because you’re taking away from the kind of culture and tradition that I’ve been raised in. My mother was appalled when she read all of this.”
