For a few days now Mumbai’s COVID-19 vaccination racket is in news. Now Bollywood’s biggest production houses TIPS has come under scanner after its name embroiled in the controversy. TIPS’ head honcho and filmmaker Ramesh Turani recently revealed that they have conducted a vaccination drive for 356 of its employees. However, the company claimed that they haven’t received their certificates yet.
A few days back Turani in his official Instagram post gave details about their fake vaccination encounter. He posted, “We @tips @tipsfilmsofficial did two vaccination drives on 29th May and 3rd June respectively. 356 people including myself, our staff, film crew and workers were vaccinated in this drive. We were informed that our certificates would take a few days to reflect. When my office people contacted Mr Rajesh Pandey he said it will come in by this Saturday.”

He further added, “Now we know he’s been absconding. We paid ₹1200/- per dose plus GST. And more than the monetary loss, we are now worried about what was given to us. Have we been vaccinated with Covishield or simply given a water shot?! We are urgently awaiting answers on this matter. Mumbai police is investigating the case and we are hopeful for clarity soon..#fakevaccation”
This fake vaccination drive has come to light after a vaccination racket hit Mumbai’s residential complex in Kandivali.
Taurani organised the vaccination camp for his employees on May 30 and June 3, 2021; however, the staff is yet to receive their certificate.
