Petition filed in Bihar court against Amitabh, Shahrukh, Ajay Devgan for gutka commercials

In a petition filed before a court in Bihar, Bollywood superstars Amitabh BachchanShahrukh Khan and Ajay Devgn have been accused of “promoting consumption of gutkha and tobacco”.

 

City-based social activist Tamanna Hashmi has filed the plea before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Muzaffarpur. He has alleged in her plea that commercials featuring these actors encouraged people to consume the items being advertised.

 

Hashmi, who remains in news for his petitions against political bigwigs and celebrities, has also named actor Ranveer Singh among those who were “misusing their celebrity status” by agreeing to appear in gutkha and pan masala ads.

 

The prayer has sought directions to the police that FIR be lodged against the actors under IPC sections 311 (punishment to a thug), 420 (cheating) and 467 and 468 (forgery). The case is likely to be taken up for hearing in due course.
