Tough laws for movies

January 14, 2009

The Union Health Minister, Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss has warned that all films containing smoking scenes will be fined. Reasoning out his statement, the minister said that shooting spots are considered to be public places as many people, like the director, light boys, actors, actress etc., gather there. This comes under the clause “smoking in public places” which means it is an offense. Dr. Anbumani added that he would recommend the Censor Board to clip such scenes. This is applicable to television too, he clarified.
