Now that Saif Ali Khan has quit smoking, a cameo in Anurag
Kashyap's movie No Smoking makes perfect sense. Anurag
Kashyap has been looking for an actor to make a brief appearance in
No Smoking that has John Abraham in the lead role. The
movie's producer Kumar Mangat has a very good equation with Saif
ever since the actor worked in his production Omkara.
So it was Mangat who suggested Saif's name to Kashyap. The
director agreed and Mangat then spoke to Saif for a cameo. The
actor gave his consent. Saif's appearance in the film that
propagates no smoking makes sense because he himself has quit
smoking after his illness a few months back.
No Smoking will also have Bipasha Basu doing an item
In the light of Bipasha's growing friendship with Saif, their
coming together in a film starring John creates a complex triangle.
