The actors are yet to comment on the issue, but politician Milind Deora refuted Sirsa’s claims.
“My wife was also present that evening (and is in the video). Nobody was in a ‘drugged state’, so stop spreading lies and defaming people you don’t know! I hope you will show the courage to tender an unconditional apology,” he tweeted.
