Karan Johar’s production house Dharma Productions has again fallen into trouble. According to the reports, the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) has issued a show-cause notice to Dharma for apparently littering a location where they were shooting.
The notice was issued after a resident of Nerul, in Goa, complained that the Dharma Production crew disposed of garbage including biomedical waste, in a haphazard manner along the streets where they were shooting. Residents of Nerul even circulated photos and videos on social media.
The reports stated that the ESG took notice of the matter after Lokhancho Ekvott Goa, a movement to save the villages and heritage locations of Goa, complained how a shoot by Dharma Productions, helmed by Shakun Batra and starring Deepika Padukone among others left garbage around the area after they finished off the shoot.
According to ESG, the Directorate of Health Services has directed to dispose of all medical gears used for COVID-19 protection using incinerators. However, in this case, it was dumped by the roadside.
According to the reports, following the irresponsible behaviour, Lokancho Ekvott Goa has demanded a written apology from Karan Johar.
They have also reportedly said that if production house fails to apologise within 48 hours, the Lokhancho Ekvott would courier parcels of garbage to Karan Johar’s house and the Dharma Productions’ office in Mumbai.
