Mohali (Punjab), Jan 7 (IANS) A Chandigarh-based voluntary organisation Wednesday filed a complaint against Bollywood actors Salman Khan and Ajay Devgun for allegedly smoking at a public place.According to the complaint, the Bollywood stars violated the tobacco control law by smoking inside the bogie of a train, while shooting for a movie at the Kurali railway station, in Mohali district, some 35 km from Chandigarh.
“We have registered a written complaint against both of them with the Railway Protection Force Wednesday. A private news channel has the clippings of the actors while smoking at a public place,” Hemant Goswamy, chairperson of Burning Brain Society, told IANS.
“They have violated the provisions of section 4 of the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act, 2003. Besides, they have also violated the section 167 of the Railway Act that prohibits one from smoking at the railway station or inside the rail bogie,” Goswamy said.
Both actors came to Chandigarh Monday for the shooting of a Bollywood film.
The same NGO also filed a complaint Tuesday against Devgun with the Chandigarh police and the director of health services for smoking at a public place.
Devgun was also photographed by a photo journalist while smoking at the Chandigarh airport Monday.
