"The crew did not take the permission before commencing the shoot, but still we entertained them. I request the production houses to take our permission the next time, as it is a tribal area," Markanda told ANI.
If this persists, we will stop granting permission to shoot in the district, the minister added.
He further alleged that the actress refused to be shifted to a safer place, despite multiple efforts by the disaster management teams. Following this, the authorities took their statement in writing contending they are staying back "at their own risk".

Markanda further said that the other people stuck in Chhatru have been shifted to a safe place.
