Mumbai: Famous Bollywood director Prakash Jha has criticized big actors for acting in ‘Gatke’ advertisements.
Prakash Jha said in a TV interview that when leading actors are getting 50 crore rupees for advertisement of gutke and they are selling gutke then why will they act in my films.
The director said that when he went to a school, the principal also complained about gutka and said, “What are you doing in the film industry?” Even our school children are caught eating gutka.
He said that hoarding boards of big actors’ gutke advertisements are installed in many cities.
He further said that when the actor wants to work on a more lively role than selling gutke, he will come to me.
It should be noted that recently Bollywood stars Shahrukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgan have faced criticism from fans for promoting tobacco brand.
