Karan Johar’s alleged “drugs party” video that has re-surfaced ever since Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa filed a complaint, the investigation has certainly widened. After actor and former Dharmatic Entertainment associate Kshitij Ravi Prasad’s judicial custody, actress Rhea Chakraborty’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde has made several allegations against NCB’s questioning.
In a Times Now report, Maneshinde alleged that Kshitij was subjected to coercion by the NCB and was forced to implicate the names of top personalities of Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions. In fact, as per the report, Kshitij’s lawyer claimed that he was ill-treated during the interrogation and was made to sit on the floor while being questioned.
Earlier today, in his statement with the channel, Kshitij stated that he was being “framed” as nothing was found or ceased from his residence. In fact, nothing was found from the medical check-up too. Kshitij’s lawyer further stated that only cigarette butts were traced at the actor’s residence.
In the ongoing drugs debacle, Kshitij was arrested on Saturday, September 26 by the NCB on the charges of procurement and consumption of drugs. He broke his silence earlier today, saying “I am being framed.”

In his official statement, Karan Johar shared that Kshitij had joined Dharma Entertainment last year for a project which did not materialise and has distanced himself from the issue. “Mr Kshitij Ravi Prasad joined Dharma entertainment in November 2019 as one of the executive producers on contract basis for a project which eventually did not materialize,” he said.
The NCB recently received the forensic report of Karan Johar’s 2019 party video that was claimed to have been a drug party by politician Manjinder Singh Sirsa. As per the report, the video has been “undoctored” and “authentic” and the NCB will soon hold a meeting to discuss the further course of action in relation to the controversial clip.
