Goa Government Objects To ‘Missing On A Weekend’ Film For Portraying The State As A Drug Haven

The recent thriller film, Missing On A Weekend, seems to have not gone down too well with the Goa government. The film is based in Goa, and the government there claims that the film portrays the state in a negative light and as a drug haven. The BJP-led Goa government has objected to it, claiming that the film projects the state as a haven for drugs and sex trade.

“We will write to the censor board and ensure that Goa’s image is not affected. The state cannot be projected as a narcotics and prostitution destination. We are a tourism state and we need to protect our identity,” state tourism minister Dilip Parulekar said recently.

“How can the filmmaker make comments about Goa which depict the state in a negative light,” Parulekar questioned. Parulekar said the state will not hesitate in approaching court to get the scenes and remarks depicting Goa in a wrong way deleted. “We have to make sure that overall branding of the state does not face a setback,” the minister said. The Abhishek Jawkar-directed film reportedly has some dialogues which claim that prostitutes and drugs are easily available in Goa.

The state’s apex tourism lobby Travel and Tourism Association of Goa (TTAG) has also condemned any attempt to defame the state and its tourism industry. “It is totally wrong to depict something like that. The crime rate has gone down. There are crackdowns on prostitution rackets, if at all they are found,” TTAG president Savio Massias said.
