    搞 = 做
    搞 is very very informal, so never use it in official case (ofc I mean just when 搞 = 做 搞 has other meanings...)
    in english, there are some words like this too. such as roll, play, fuck etc. all of these can be used as "do" but they are informal.

    搞 : 做、從事之意, 但通常具有負面意義 (不認真、 不正經、 不正當、 不嚴謹)。
    例如 :
    搞不懂
    搞不好
    搞破鞋
    搞飛機
    搞丟
    搞定
    搞懂
    搞頭
    搞妥
    搞亂
    搞怪
    搞鬼
    搞活
    搞七捻三
    搞笑
    搞砸
    胡搞
    瞎搞
    怎麼搞的

    臺灣 中國二藝術家相遇 初次對談
    中: 你搞啥藝術的?
    台: (搞? 還不太適應) 我「從事」繪畫創作。
    中: 搞中國畫呢? 還是搞西畫?
    台: (再搞? ) 我「鍾情」國畫。
    中: 那繪畫八門 你搞哪樣?
    台: (怎又搞?但好像無妨!) 我「專研」人物傳寫。
    中: 那專搞人物傳寫的哪樣?
    台: (一時不察) 我專搞仕女 (啊? 赧顏!)

    「搞」字雖作「做、從事」解,但是在臺灣,
    卻是帶有一種「不認真、不正經從事」或「指責他人不認真、不正經從事」的意味在。
    故在臺灣,慎用「搞」。
