Social activist files complaint on Thupaki

IndiaGlitz [Saturday, May 05, 2012]

V Selvakumar, a social activist from Chennai has filed a complaint on Ilayathalapathy Vijay's forthcoming 'Thupaki', thanks to the posters featuring the star smoking a cigar.

"Recently Chennai was filled with wall posters from Thupaki, which were also used in print media. The posters have Vijay smoking a cigar. In spite of Ministry Of Health, Government of India banning any display of smoking, this poster was pasted everywhere and used as ads", says Selvakumar.

"In regard to the above mentioned violation of the Indian Tobacco Act, I have filed a complaint on 04th May 2012 with The Commissioner of Police, requesting to take necessary action against the violators", he further adds.

However this is not the first time a lead actor has posed with a cigar for a film poster, remember Ajith's 'Aasal' posters and Simbu's 'Vettai Mannan' posters? Only about two weeks back Shahrukh Khan was in news for smoking in public.

Simbu returns from Hong Kong schedule
