Kapoor, who is basking in the success of his latest release
quit smoking. The reason behind this is the success of
Barfi. It so happened that Ranbir Kapoor and Anurag Basu
had a bet that if Barfi will cross 70 crore, Ranbir will
A source told a leading daily, "While shooting the film, Anurag
would tell Ranbir about the ill effects of smoking and advise him
to quit. He was never preachy. However, one day they made a very
unusual bet. Ranbir challenged Basu that if the film crosses Rs 70
crore, he would give up smoking."
Barfi crossed Rs 75 crore on Monday at the Box-Office,
so Ranbir kept his promise and quit smoking. Not long ago, Ranbir
Kapoor was fined for smoking in public for the shooting of Yeh
Jawani Hai Deewani. But now his fans can take a sigh of relief
as the actor has finally quit smoking.
