Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn and Ranveer kapoor have been facing legal troubles for promoting gutkha & tobacco.
Tamanna Hashmi, a social activist based in the city, has filed a petition in a Bihar court. Ajay Devgn has been a Vimal brand tobacco ambassador for a couple of years while SRK came aboard last year. Amitabh Bachchan was a brand ambassador to Kamla Pasand before cutting his ties.
Tamanna alleged that advertisements featuring actors encouraged people to consume these items which could be injurious to consumers’ health. Tamanna also named Ranveer Singh among those who were ‘misusing their celebrity status’.
