MLA alleges Bollywood celebrities took drugs at KJo's party
Karan Johar's recent starry bash, which was attended by Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal etc., became a heated topic of debate for politicians. Citing a video from the party, SAD (Shiromani Akali Dal) MLA Manjinder Sirsa alleged that these celebrities were in a drugged state. While Congress leader Milind Deora slammed Sirsa demanding an apology for his false claims, he refused to apologize.
"I raise my voice against drug abuse by these stars"
In the video posted by Sirsa, (originally shared by KJo), the stars are seen having a good time. However, as per the MLA, the video showed these renowned names to be stoned, which gave a glimpse of #UDTABollywood culture of the industry. "Watch how the mighty of Bollywood proudly flaunt their drugged state!! I raise my voice against #DrugAbuse by these stars," he tweeted.

Stop spreading lies and defaming people you don't know: Deora
Refuting Sirsa's claims, Deora slammed him for defaming people he doesn't know. He also urged him to show courage to apologize. He tweeted, "My wife was also present that evening (and is in the video). Nobody was in a drugged state so stop spreading lies & defaming people you don't know! I hope you will show the courage to tender an unconditional apology."

I would never apologize to these drug addicts, says Sirsa
Meanwhile, Sirsa has refused to apologize for calling celebrities as "drug addicts." In his video, lasting 51 seconds, he claimed that he is confident about B-town celebrities consuming drugs. "Neither I know @milinddeora; nor his family. I didn't share this video to harass anyone but to expose Bollywood stars who are themselves into drugs yet defamed our youth calling them drug addict!!," he wrote.
Not harassing anyone but exposing these Bollywood stars: Sirsa

Twitter is divided; some support celebrities, some slam them
Meanwhile, social media remained divided over the said video, with some supporting Deora, and hence the celebrities, while some asked Deora to keep shut, as the video clearly showed what these actors were up to. "Totally sir! Just because there's some talcum powder doesn't mean they were snorting it. Vicky Kaushal might be suffering from cold," responded a Twitter user sarcastically to Milind's tweet.
"Looks like they're having a good time to me"

Share the dope test report on Twitter, demands Sirsa
Responding to the backlash over his allegations, Sirsa demanded a dope test from these celebrities, and requested them to share the report on Twitter. In a series of tweets against a Twitter user, Ishita Yadav, Sirsa called out the celebrities for lecturing audience on every issue, so now "They are answerable to every Indian for their drug-affected stoned look as visible in video."
