A week ago a 40 year old cancer patient from Jaipur Rajasthan Nanakram apeals Bollywood star Ajay devgnn not to promote tobacco products
Nanakram circulated more than 1000 pamphlets adrressing ajay devgnn, he pasted those pamphlets in many areas of jaipur
He and his family started chewing the same brand which ajay devgnn promotes and he also mentioned that he is a huge fan of ajay devgnn
Ajay devgn reacted to this
“I have always maintained in my contracts that I am not promoting tobacco. Whatever the ads are, they are of ilaaichi (cardamom) and my contract says it will be non-tobacco. So if the same company is selling something else, I don’t know what to do,” ajay told to PTI
What i can do is i can avoid promoting as much as i can in my films.
“In my latest film, De De Pyaar De, I’m playing a regular man who does not smoke. But if I’m playing a Malik bhai in a film like ‘Company’, how will it be without smoking? Without taking any names, we were playing somebody (real) who smoked. So it would have been wrong to not show it as it would not be true to the role,” Devgn told PTI.
Ajay devgn’s De de pyaar de releasing on Friday which also features Tabu and rakul preet .
