Bollywood celebrities have faced a huge backlash for promoting tobacco brands previously. However, since tobacco products, alcohol and gambling are prohibited from being advertised, these ad makers try taking the surrogate advertisement method to promote their products. Recently, Ajay Devgn was asked about his views on actors getting criticised for endorsing certain products of their choice
Akshay Kumar has recently faced huge criticism for joining Ajay and Shah Rukh Khan to promote the pan masala brand. Netizens troll him for promoting such brans when he openly endorses a healthy lifestyle. Earlier, while talking about endorsing gutkha and similar products, Khiladi Kumar said that it is “Galat kaam”.
While interacting with the media Ajay was asked about his endorsements with the pan masala brand to which he said, “It is a personal choice. When you do something, you also see how harmful it would be. Some things are harmful, some are not. I would say it without naming it because I don’t want to promote it;
Ajay Devgn added, “I was doing elaichi. What I feel is more than advertisements, if certain things are so wrong, then they should not be sold.”
Meanwhile, Pusha: The Rise star Allu Arjun is said to have turned down a big offer to promote a cigarette product. According to reports, the 40-year-old actor did not want his fans to consume such dangerous substances, therefore he refused the expensive amount he was offered without hesitation.
The movie will be released on April 29, 2022. While Akshay Kumar has a number of projects in the works, they include Mission Cindrella, Prithviraj, Raksha Bandhan, RamSetu, Selfie OMG 2, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, and many others.
