Ranbir Kapoor, who is basking in the success of his latest releaseBarfi has 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 quit smoking.
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.
