SRKâ€™s smoking act in IPL annoys anti-smoking lobby
Shahrukh Khan who is a chain smoker cannot keep away with his habit at the IPL also. His smoking act did not go well with the anti-smoking lobby that has now banned showing the smoking footage of any celebrities in television.
The National Organization for Tobacco Eradication (NOTE) said in a statement that its counterpart South African National Council Against Smoking (NCAS) ensures that smoking footage of no celebrities will be broadcast.
"We have sent the details to Supersport, who are the official broadcasters of the IPL and the NCAS is in the process of soliciting an agreement that they will not show anyone smoking," NCAS's convener Peter Ucko informed NOTE Friday.
It has been decided that if King Khan is again caught smoking then he will be knocked out of the stadium. The NCAS has decided to make no smoking announcement through the match and during drinks breaks.
