Bollywood celebs keep getting involved in legal matters from time to time. Be it for breaching contracts, or misbehaviour, or their promotional activities, controversy seems to be haunting Bollywood. We're sure you're thinking about the ongoing riots and chaos around the release of period film, Padmaavat.

Filmmaker Karan Johar is the recent celeb to come under the radar. According to a report by Aaj Tak, his production house (Dharma Productions), Endemol Productions and Kamla Pasand are in trouble as a notice has been filed by the Delhi Health Department. This is because of screening the 'Kamla Pasand' advertisement during the show—'India's Next Superstar'. Since the name of Dharma Productions can be seen before the show begins, the notice has been filed against the director.

What's more, this is the second time KJo has been sent a notice for violation of the COTPA (Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act), which could even land him in jail for a period up to 5 years, besides a penalty fine of Rs. 2000. Earlier, the Delhi Health Department had issued a strict agreement notice to the filmmaker, Shah Rukh Khan, Gauri Khan and others for promoting smoking in the promotional posters of their film Ittefaq, last year.

Everyone related to the show are liable for an answer within 10 days, otherwise a case will be registered against them by the Delhi Health Department. The reason behind their intervention is clear, a show that is a platform for aspiring commoners to be an actor in the industry—aired on prime time and watched by the country's youngsters with an impressionable mind—needs to be careful about their endorsements and content.

All set for the session at #WEF #Davos #corporatelook😎
