B-town drug controversy: MLA asks stars to take drug test

Wednesday 07th August 2019 07:34 EDT

A Punjab MLA Manjinder Sirsa said that Bollywood actors, including Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal, and others at Karan Johar's house last week, were in a "drugged state". He asked them to undergo a dope test if they claim to be innocent. He has claimed that the actors who were introduced by Karan Johar in a candid video from his party were actually in a "drugged state".

He wrote on Twitter, "#UDTABollywood- Fiction Vs Reality Watch how the high and mighty of Bollywood proudly flaunt their drugged state!! I raise my voice against #DrugAbuse by these stars. RT if you too feel disgusted @shahidkapoor @deepikapadukone @arjunk26 @Varun_dvn @karanjohar @vickykaushal09."

When asked by a Twitter user why he cares that the guests at Karan's party were stoned or drugged, Sirsa said, "They are public figures!! They are called "Stars" & they enjoy many privileges. Don't they lecture us # on every issue from their verified twitter handles? So today they are answerable to every Indian for their drug-effected stoned look as visible in video." Sirsa also demanded Karan, Deepika, Shahid, Varun Dhawan and Arjun Kapoor to undergo a dope test in order to prove their innocence.

He responded to one user who was defending the celebrities, and wrote, "Since @IshitaYadav is so furiously defending the celebs & advocating their innocence in drugs... Let us all request @karanjohar @shahidkapoor @Varun_dvn @arjunk26 @deepikapadukone to get DOPE TEST done & share report on twitter. Pls prove me wrong by dope test report Ishita Ji."

Sirsa has also refused to apologise to the actors after politician Milind Deora refuted his claim and demanded an apology. Deora revealed his wife had also attended Karan's party. 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!"
