Actor Vicky Kaushal has finally opened up about the accusation made by a politician about an alleged drug party held Karan Johar’s house last month. Speaking to Pinkvilla, Vicky Kaushal said that the accusation had a 'huge effect' on him and he added that 'factualising assumptions is not fair all the time.'
''What 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,'' he said.
Vicky Kaushal revealed that after the party he left for Arunachal Pradesh to film NDTV show Jai Jawan and he only learnt about the allegation after returning to Mumbai. ''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.''

''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,'' Vicky added.
Last week, Karan Johar talked about the politician's controversial statement in an interview with Rajeev Masand and said that his mother Hiroo Johar was with the celebrity guests at the party minutes before he took the video.Karan refuted the claim that his guests indulged in drug abuse as 'baseless.'
He 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."
Apart from Vicky Kaushal and Karan Johar, the party was attended by Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Arjun Kapoor and Varun Dhawan. After Karan posted the video on Twitter, Shiromani Akali Dal lawmaker Manjinder Singh Sirsa tweeted accusing the Bollywood stars of "flaunting their drugged state."
On the work front, Vicky Kaushal is currently filming Sardar Udham Singh and Bhoot - Part One: The Haunted Ship.RELATED
