Is stereotypical depiction of places in films doing more harm than good?

People never distinguish between reel and real. This has indeed become a bane for many destinations which bore the brunt of having a negative image among the public. The perfect example is Goa. Most films portrayed Goa in poor light - as a haven for easy access to wine and women, cocaine and casinos. Showing the state in poor light provoked the Government authorities to swing into action. Henceforth, Entertainment Society of Goa will skim through a film's script and any project that maligns the state's image will not be permitted to shoot there. It is indeed a welcome move as it is unfair to portray the place in a way that brings disgrace to it. Filmmakers, take note!
