Smoke leads to burns

The Central government clamping a ban on actors smoking on screen (in films) has left many producers in a tight spot.

One among them is NIC Arts Chakravarthy.

His forthcoming film Godfather starring Ajith has been completed.

However in a couple of scenes, Ajith smokes a cigarette. Unfortunately it was shot in a grand set erected at over a crore. So there is no talk of reshooting the entire thing.

Asked about this, director K S Ravikumar says "if the Government had banned the production of cigarette and then banned the scenes of smoking, we can  welcome that.  I can't accept the opinion that people  smoke only after they see actors smoking in films.

We are taking the scene like smoking and drinking, just to show the difference between the hero and the Villains. If there is a ban on this kind of scenes, how can we make films?"

Now, the one way out for this film is show a scroll below, warning about the injurious nature of smoking. But that would take away all the charm of watching a film.

But what to do, rules are rules.
