Aamir Khan along with his team had been shooting in Ladakh for his upcoming film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. Recently, several video clips went viral on the Internet alleging that the film’s crew had littered the location and left without cleaning it up.
After almost a week from when the videos surfaced online, Aamir Khan Productions has broken their silence and issued a statement denying the allegations.
Taking to their official social media handle, Aamir Khan Productions stated:
"To whomsoever it may concern: AKP (Aamir Khan Productions) would like to clarify that as a company we follow strict protocols for cleanliness in and around our shooting spaces. We have a team which makes sure that the location is kept trash-free at all times. At the end of the day there is a re-check of the entire location. At the end of the entire schedule, we make sure that when we leave a location we leave it as clean, or cleaner than we found it."
The statement added that the shoot locations are always clean, and are open to inspection by authorities.
“We believe that there are some rumours/allegations about our location not being kept clean. We strongly deny such claims. Our location is always open to relevant local authorities to carry out checks anytime that they like.”
Last week, a Twitter user had shared a video from Ladakh, where the team of Laal Singh Chaddha had been shooting which showed used water bottles scattered across the location. The user had tweeted alongside the video:
“This is the gift Bollywood star Amir Khan's upcoming movie Lal Singh Chada has left for the villagers of Wakha in Ladakh. Amir Khan himself talks big about environmental cleanliness at Satyamev Jayate but this is what happens when it comes to himself.”
Speaking of the film, Laal Singh Chadha, it is an adaptation of Hollywood film Forrest Gump starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
While Aamir will play Tom Hanks’ iconic character, Kareena will be playing Robin Wright’s character from the film. Fans are eager to witness their on-screen reunion after seven years in this Advait Chandan film.
