Kangana Ranaut has slammed Karan Johar over a Twitter video that claimed his Dharma Productions has littered a village in Goa.
She tweeted: “Movie industry is not a virus just for the moral fibre and culture of this nation but it has become very destructive and harmful for the environment also, see this disgusting, filthy, irresponsible behaviour by so called big production houses, please help.”
She also tagged environment minister Prakash Javadekar in the tweet.
Karan came under fire this week for allegedly littering the roads of Nerul, 10km from Goa’s capital city Panaji, after filming a Deepika Padukone-led movie.
The Entertainment Society of Goa on October 25 issued a showcause notice to him.
The incident came to light after residents of Nerul, furious over the foul-smelling garbage and other unsegregated waste dumped by the production house, complained to the panchayat and circulated photos and videos on social media.
In the clips and photos that went viral, heaps of biomedical wastes, including PPE kits, masks, sanitary napkins, as well as unsegregated garbage and tonnes of plastic waste were seen dumped in the area.
Lokhancho Ekvott Goa, a social movement to save the villages and heritage of Goa, has demanded a written apology from Karan and Dharma Productions.
They accused the production house of breaking rules and disturbing their ecosystem and threatened to send the garbage to the director-producer’s home in Mumbai.
Karan and his team are yet to respond to the allegations.
