I raise my voice against #DrugAbuse by these stars. RT if you too feel disgusted @shahidkapoor @deepikapadukone @arjunk26 @Varun_dvn @karanjohar @vickykaushal09 pic.twitter.com/aBiRxwgQx9
He also used the catchphrase Udta Bollywood after Shahid's 2016 film, which was about drug abuse. While netizens had a field day speculating about what the stars were up to, politician Milind Deora slammed Sirsa and demanded an apology. Deora's wife Pooja Shetty was also at the bash. Sirsa refused to apologise saying he wanted to expose the hypocrisy of B-Town stars.
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!— Milind Deora à¤®à¤¿à¤²à¤¿à¤Âà¤¦ à¤¦à¥Âà¤µà¤°à¤¾ (@milinddeora) July 30, 2019
I hope you will show the courage to tender an unconditional apology https://t.co/Qv6FY3wNRk

Neither I know @milinddeora; nor his family. I didn’t share this video to harass anyone but to expose Bollywood stars who are themselves into drugs yet defamed our youth calling them drug addict!!— Manjinder S Sirsa (@mssirsa) July 31, 2019
I would never apologise to these drug addicts.@ANI @TimesNow @ZeeNews https://t.co/GRB4x5OICC pic.twitter.com/MIn0iPh2x0
