Thiruvananthapuram: For the alleged use of Charkha in an advertisement of a famous textile brand, Sobhana George, vice chairperson of the Kerala Khadi and Village Industries Board said that she has filed a judicial complaint against Mohanlal as he was seen weaving thread in a Charkha in the advertisement.
She revealed that a judicial notice has been sent to Mohanlal demanding to withdraw the advertisement as the first step.
“The scene in which Mohanlal uses a charkha is deceiving consumers. All products of the textile industry for which Mohanlal has acted are weaved using a power loom. However, use of charkha in the advertisement will mislead people. Only Khadi industry is using handloom in India”, added Sobhana George while inaugurating the district level Onam-Bakrid fair of Khadi board.
