Whoever is needed we will summon. Karan Johar’s manager has been summoned, and if needed we’ll summon Karan Johar as well.”
He will be questioned on the grounds of the fraternity in Bollywood that prevents outsiders from entering the Hindi film industry. The police will also be investigating the case with every angle including professional rivalry involving business angle.
