Aishwarya Rai is smoking!
The Guzaarish posters on BEST buses have drawn the ire of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS).
The pictures depicting a puffing Rai “send a wrong message to society and should be withdrawn immediately” says Avinash Abhyankar , president of the MNS BEST workers’ union.
If the MNS are railing against any endorsement of smoking in general , then maybe they have a point.
But if they are particularly against women smoking or waging a vendetta against the Bacchan ‘parivar’, then their protestations should not cut any ice with the general public and should be seen as yet another attempt to hog the limelight.
“Smoking is injurious to health and can cause carcinogenic diseases” should be on the agenda of every political party.
Does anybody know what has happened about the ban on smoking in public places? Are there any statistics about the sums collected in fines? Is that law just on paper? Has it ever been enforced?
Just a thought!
