Smoking scenes to be allowed in films

A while back, there was a huge hue and cry about smoking scenes in films. Now we hear that the government would shortly be permitting smoking scenes on the condition that one of the actors in the scene warns viewers that ‘smoking kills’.

The Supreme Court bench of Justice P. Sathasivam and Justice Ranjan Gogoi ruled that films would be permitted to portray the said scenes. However, apart from the warning that will have to be done by one of the actors within the scene, the film will also have to feature a warning at the start of the film, in between and after the interval, while a static message would be displayed in the course of the scene showing smoking.

The said notification that will supersede earlier notifications prohibiting smoking scenes would be issued on September 14.
