SRK trampling anti-tobacco laws: Watchdog
India's premier anti-tobacco watchdog, NOTE has expressed concern over superstar Shah Rukh Khan's arrogant behaviour with which he time and again decides to "trample" the law and smoke in public places.
"My main grievance is his arrogant demeanour with which he time and again decides to trample the law and smoke in places where he can be viewed and emulated by thousands of viewers when he can smoke privately," Shekhar Salkar, General Secretary, National Organisation for Tobacco Eradication (NOTE), said
Salkar said that Shahrukh's recent smoking in a stadium at Rajasthan during IPL, indicates 'his careless attitude towards his responsibilities as an influential personality.'
Recommending tobacco eradication counseling for the filmstar, NOTE has said that smoking is a very powerful addiction and in spite of he repeatedly stating his desire to quit it, he hasn't been able to kick the butt.
"In my personal opinion he would never be able to because of his all knowing haughty persona," Salkar said.
