Mumbai Police summon Karan Johar in AIB case


Filmmaker Karan Johar was summoned by Mumbai Police to record his statement in the controversial All India Bakchod (AIB) roast. The event was held in Worli in December 2013. He along with Ranveer Singh, Arjun Kapoor, Deepika Padukone are also likely to be summoned for using abusive words on the show.

“We have summoned Karan Johar, which essentially means he will have to come to the Tardeo police station to give his statement. His statement will be an important part of the charge sheet that is yet to be submitted to the court,” said an officer from the Tardeo police station, reports Hindustan Times.

Karan Johar who is out of the country for his new film, ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ has sought some time and promised to co-operate fully with the police in the case. Police are in touch with his advocate. Johar will record his statement soon after he returns.
