The Goa government decided to take action against Saif Ali Khan's Go Goa Gone for violating the Cigarette Smoking Act and for allegedly 'defaming' the coastal state in the movie.
The violations were brought to the notice of the State
Legislative Assembly by BJP Legislator Pramod Sawant, who
claimed that the film defamed the state.
"This is one of the instances wherein the filmmaker has
been misusing Goa's name," Sawant said.
The legislator also pointed out that the one of the
posters showed Khan puffing cigarettes which violated the
"NGO National Organization for Tobacco Eradication (NOTE)
has already issued notice to the filmmakers (Raj Nidimoru and
Krishna D K) and the actor," he said.
Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar responding to the Zero
Hour mention by Sawant assured to take action on the matter.
"Give me all the details, I will take action," he said.
The movie which is India's first zomcom features Saif
Ali Khan, Kunal Khemu, Vir Das, Anand Tiwari and Puja Gupta.
