After the arrest of Kshitij Prasad, Karan Johar issued a press note on social media. He wrote, “Some news channels, print / electronic media, social media platforms are publishing false information that I was addicted to drugs at a party held at my house on July 28, 2019.” As I have said before, all these allegations are false. I repeat, these allegations are baseless and false. No drugs were consumed at the party. I don’t use drugs or promote them. ‘
Karan Johar further wrote, ‘All these news and articles have made me, my family and colleagues, Dharma Productions an unnecessarily hateful, funny subject. Many media / news channels are reporting that Kshitij Prasad and Anubhav Chopra are my colleagues. But I don’t know people personally and they aren’t my colleagues or close ones. Also, Dharma Productions is not responsible for what these people do in their personal lives.
Karan Johar further said, ‘Anubhav Chopra is not an employee of Dharma Productions. He was working between November 2011 and January 2012 and in January 2013 as an assistant director for a short film for two months. Since then he has never worked for Dharma Productions. Kshitij Ravi Prasad, a sister company of Dharma Productions, was hired as an executive producer on a contract basis for a project of Dharmatik Entertainment from November 2019.
But it was never a project. For the past few days, the media has been using false allegations. I hope people in the media will exercise restraint. Otherwise, I will have the option to take legal action against the false allegations against me.
