Aamir Khan's Aamir Khan Productions released an official statement after the matter.
A netizen had slammed Aamir Khan and the crew of Laal Singh Chaddha for littering the Wakha village in Ladakh while shooting for their film recently. The video featured many plastic bottles and food wrappers left behind by the film’s team.
Now, issuing a clarification, Aamir Khan has denied doing any such thing. In the clarification, the actor stated that his team takes cleanliness seriously.
“We have a team that makes sure that the location is kept trash-free at all times,” Aamir Khan Productions’ Twitter handle verified. They further wrote, “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.”
Further denying the claims, Aamir’s agency asked the local authorities to carry out checks anytime.
Here’s the whole tweet:
Aamir is on a 20-day schedule in Wakha to film a war sequence for the film.
The actor recently made headlines for his divorce with wife Kiran Rao. A few days before the announcement, he had quit Twitter, the same platform where he was accused of littering the place.
Laal Singh Chaddha, directed by Advait Chandan, is the Hindi remake of Tom Hanks starrer Forrest Gump. Telugu star Naga Chaitanya joined the team for the shoot recently. Kareena Kapoor Khan, on the other hand, plays the female lead in the film.
Laal Singh Chaddha was to release in Christmas 2020. However, owing to the COVID-19 situation, the makers have not yet finalised a release date for the film.
