Celebrities like Manish Malhotra, Amrita Arora, Alia Bhatt’s mother – actor Soni Razdan, Twinkle Khanna, Punit Malhotra, Pulkit Samrat commented on his post, with thumbs up, clap emojis and words like ‘you said, big hug.’

Karan Johar had hit out at the ‘misleading reporting’, ‘slanderous and malicious statements’ over his name being linked to the ongoing Narcotics Control Bureau probe into the Bollywood-drug cartel nexus. The producer’s statement came after reports had claimed that he too was set to be summoned by the NCB as Rhea Chakraborty was arrested and names like Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor and Rakul Preet Singh emerged. This was after two persons, who had briefly worked with Johar’s Dharma Productions, came under the radar of the Narcotics Control Bureau. While Kshitij Ravi Prasad, who had worked as an executive producer and director, has been arrested after seizure of drugs at his residence, Anubhav Chopra, who worked as an assistant director, has been questioned.
