Pasumai Thayagam, a socio-environmental organisation headed by
Union Health Minister Dr Anbumani Ramadoss has urged the leading
actors of Tamil Cinema including Ajith, Simbu and Vikram not to
smoke on screen in future.
This appeal has come after the announcement of top hero Vijay
that he would not appear in any smoking scenes in his future
projects. Pasumai Thayagam, an important wing of Pattalai Makkal
Katchi in the state has made an appeal to prominent actors in Tamil
cinema to go the same way of Rajini and Vijay.
According to the press release of the organization, young actors
like Ajith and Simbu have always been appearing with cigarettes in
their films. This should be avoided in future. It may be recalled
that super star Rajinikanth gave away the smoking scenes in his
previous films Chandramukhi and Sivaji only after the public appeal
of Dr Anbumani Ramadoss
