Bubblegums for Heroes

Going forward we will only have movies which are rehashes of Thiruvilayaadal or Thirunilaakandar and Veera Pandiya Kattaboman. No Mughal movies as they have scenes where the Sultans smoke Hooka. Why ?

Smoking to be banned in movies, television serials. All our movie heroes will chew bubblegums from today, on-screen.

Let them even ban making movies in India but in the name of censor or such explicit laws, I hope these wouldn’t happen to the growing media industry. Why wouldn’t they ban making movies in India ? Why won’t they ban cigarettes itself from entering the country rather than resorting to such bans ? Both these might not happen because both fetch money like nobody’s business.

Let’s not fool ourselves that media reflects society or viceversa anymore.
