Superstar production house Aamir Khan on Tuesday ruled out that the crew of the film “Laal Singh Chaddha” had polluted the filming location in Ladakh. Khan is currently making films by director Advait Chandan in the territory of the union. Last week, a Twitter user shared video clips from the village of Ladak Wakha, where the 56-year-old actor’s film crew recorded a sequence on the spot, but complained that the area had not been cleared.
The video showed used water bottles scattered throughout the location, and the user said it was a filming site.
In a statement posted on Aamir Khan Productions ’official Twitter handle, the group denied the allegation and wrote that authorities have opened the filming sites to verify.
“We believe there are rumors / allegations about not keeping our location clean. We strongly deny these claims. Our location is always up to the local authorities to carry out checks at any time they want,” the note says.
In the statement, the production house stressed that its team follows “Strict Protocols” to achieve cleanliness in and around shooting sites.
“We have a team that makes sure the team stays free of garbage at all times. At the end of the day the whole location is rechecked. At the end of the entire schedule, we make sure we leave a location, we leave it as clean or clean as we found it,” the document says.
“Laal Singh Chaddha” starring actors Kareen Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya is the official Indian remake of Tom Hanks’ 1994 blockbuster “Forrest Gump.”
