Filmmaker Karan Johar, who is seen as one of the judges on India’s Next Superstar, is back in the limelight but not for a good reason.
According to reports, the filmmaker has landed himself in serious trouble this time and might face an imprisonment term for five years!
Karan, who alongside Rohit Shetty, is seen as the judge of the show India’s Next Superstar, a show that pushes aspiring talent in acting has been issued with a notice by the Delhi Health Department.
The reason behind the latest controversy from the tinsel town is due to the air-time provided to Kamla Pasand (a tobacco company) advertisement during the show. As per reports, the name of Dharma Productions (KJo’s production house) can be seen before the show begins and that is why the notice has been filed against the filmmaker.
Apparently, KJo has been sent a notice for the second time for the violation of the COTPA (Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act) and if not cooperated then Johar can be even sentenced to jail for a minimum of five years and have to pay a penalty of Rs.2000.
Not only Karan, but the people related to the show, who agreed to air the illegal ad were also found guilty and have been asked by the Delhi Health Department to appear before them within 10 days of the filling of the complaint.
