Karan Johar‘s Dharma Productions’ upcoming film that stars Deepika Padukone is being shot in Goa over the last month. It has been reported that the crew dumped waste such as plastic utensils and used PPE kits at a village. So, the production house has come under fire from environmentalists for ‘littering’ in the village.
Kangana Ranaut who has been at loggerheads with Karan Johar got yet another chance to slam the filmmaker. She retweeted a video of the alleged waste dump that has been done by the crew of the movie. She wrote, “Movie industry is not a virus just for the moral fibre n culture of this nation but it has become very destructive and harmful for the environment also, @PrakashJavdekarji @moefcc see this disgusting,filthy,irresponsible behaviour by so called big production houses, pls help.”
In another tweet, she wrote, “Their insensitive and inconsiderate attitude is absolutely appalling,film units need strict rules about women safety, modern ecological resolves, good medical facilities and food quality check for workers, we need government to assign a proper department to inspect these aspects.”

As per a report in IANS, the waste was dumped at Nerul, a village 10 km from Goan capital Panaji. Lokhancho Ekvott Goa, a group working for Goa’s environment has demanded an apology from Karan and threatened to ‘courier’ the dumped waste back to his office in Mumbai.
Health minister of Goa, Vishwajit Rane said, “It is not right to dump waste in the open. When permission was given for the film shoot, conditions ought to have been added in guidelines that the entity will dispose of the waste.”
