Govinda in legal trouble over misleading ad

By Hindustan Times

A complaint has been filed by FDA (Food and Drug Administration) against Bollywood actor Govinda under various sections of the Drugs and Magic Remedies Act over endorsing Sandhi Sudha plus, reports Mid Day.

The FDA had demanded action against the drug manufacturers, scriptwriters and actors who promote the products, as well as television channels on which they are aired.

"Promoting such drugs is a complete violation of the law. These advertisements are completely misleading and companies end up extracting huge amounts from unsuspecting people who see the ads. Hence, we had written to Bollywood stars telling them not to violate the law. We have recently received a reply from Govinda, who claimed his innocence as he was unaware of the law," a source from FDA told the tabloid.
