Vicky Kaushal finally opened up about the viral video shared by Karan Johar after which the celebrities were accused of taking drugs. Around a month back, Karan had organized a Bollywood house party at his plush Mumbai residence and several celebrities were present at the do. KJo had randomly uploaded a video featuring Vicky, Deepika Padukone, Ranbir Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor and several others, after which the group was accused of taking drugs at the party. Not only this, Shiromani Akali Dal MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa had accused the celebrities present at KJo's party of "flaunting" their drugged state.
In an interview, Vicky opened up about the entire situation and said, "I understand is that people who don't know you personally, see something and make an assumption..that's completely fine. We all do that. But factualising assumptions..It's a big leap to take and that's not fair all the time."
Vicky added, "We all knew the video was being taken and five minutes before the video was shot Karan's mom was with us. The video was put up. Next day I leave for Arunachal Pradesh. I was with the army for the next four days in the hills where there is no network. So I have no clue of what's going on."
The day after the video was uploaded by Karan, Sirsa had requested the Mumbai Police to file an FIR against the celebrities under the Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act 1985. Sirsa wrote, "These drug-addicted stars are setting a wrong trend in real life; while on screen they defamed our State & its youth!"
Vicky opened up about this and said, "I returned and checked Twitter and I was like 'Hain ji?' 'What?'. FIR...open letter..ye woh. Of course, it had a huge effect on me. It is not nice to be called those names by people."
Earlier, Karan Johar reacted to these allegations and said, "There were achieving members of the industry who were having an easy night out after a hard week of work, having a good time. I took that video with all the earnestness... would I be putting out that video if there was anything happening at all, I am not stupid."
