A pamphlet is getting circulated by the Nanakram a cancer patient that is catching fire. The Jaipur based man who is the father of two children is struck by cancer.
Before the movie starts a statutory waring is displayed saying alcohol and tobacco consumption is injurious to health. Then the actors who perform in the same film promote Tabaco. Ajay Devgan has been endorsing tobacco consumption for past 40 years.
According to a report in PTI, “The Nankram’s family said that he was a fan of Ajay Devgn and used the same product which the actor advertises for..”
Around 1000 of pamphlets have been circulated and posters are pasted on the walls in Sanganer, Jagatpura and nearby areas of the city.
The patient’s son Dinesh Meena said that his father started consuming tobacco 2 years ago. He was very impressed with Ajay Devgan’s Ad and consumed the same brand that the actor promoted.
This raises questions, how seriously the actors take the responsibility that comes with popularity? Are they aware of how their decisions and actions affect the ones who look up to them?
