The much talked movie of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali titled Guzaarish, which stars Aishwarya Bachchan, was supposed to release its trailers with the prints of recently released We Are Family. However, it got delayed for a month and now the trailers will appear with Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor starrer Anjaana Anjaani.In the meantime, the industry insiders have reported that the trailer shows Aishwarya smoking cigarettes anxiously. The films in India have no more ban on smoking but the former beauty queen is a global icon and smoking is no doubt injurious to health. So people have expressed their concern over these particular scenes in the trailers of the movie.
However, a source close to the film was quoted saying that Aishwarya is not actually smoking in the movie. The scene is very cute and funny and the sequence is captured very beautifully where she tries to smoke even though she does not know how to do it.
Well, whether Ash is really smoking or not is something we can"t comment on at the moment, but what about the other stars, who have been often shown smoking in the films. Are they not propagating smoking? One cannot actually force or encourage smoking, whether he is a star or a common man. It"s totally a decision of an individual because stars also do many good things in the movies but are the youngsters encouraged by that?
