Cancer Patient Asks Ajay Devgn To Not Promote Tobacco; Circulates 1000 Pamphlets Addressed To Him
Bollywood actor Ajay Devgn has often been slammed for promoting a tobacco brand. Now, a 40-year-old cancer patient named Nanakram from Rajasthan, has made an appeal to the actor to stop advertising tobacco. Nanakram made a public request to the actor through posters to stop promoting it.

According to a report in PTI, “The patient's family said that he was a fan of Ajay Devgn and used the same product which the actor advertises for, but now he realises that tobacco has had an adverse effect on his life. Nearly 1000 pamphlets addressed to Mr Devgn, in which Nanakram asks the actor about how much he or his family chew tobacco, have been circulated and pasted on the walls in Sanganer, Jagatpura and nearby areas of the city. In the pamphlet, Nanakram said that advertisements of things like liquor, cigarette and tobacco were harmful and that actors should not promote these things. A father of two children, Nanakram, who used to run a tea-stall earlier, cannot speak and runs the family by selling milk at home in Sanganer town of Jaipur.”



The patient's son Dinesh Meena, who hails from Jaipur told PTI, "My father Nanakram Meena started chewing tobacco a few years ago and was using the same brand for which Devgn does the advertisement. My father was impressed by Devgn but when he was diagnosed with cancer, he felt that such a big star should not advertise for these kind of products."

On the work front, Ajay Devgn will next be seen in Luv Ranjan’s De De Pyaar De co-starring Tabu and Rakul Preet Singh. Directed by Akiv Ali, the film is slated to release on May 17, 2019.
