Ramadoss should focus on real issues: Sharmila TagoreMay 1st, 2008 - 3:50 pm ICT by admin
New Delhi, May 1 (ANI): Health Minister Anbumani Ramadosss desire for not showing drunken scenes as a tool of humour in movies is not welcomed by Censor Board Head Sharmila Tagore, who said the minister should focus on real issues.
“First it was about smoking, then the minister spoke about chips and now alcohol. I think what is primarily important is that he should focus on real issues like fake medicines. There are a lot of drugs that are fake and it’s a known fact, which is actually causing a lot of problems,” she said.
Ramadoss has criticised Shah Rukh Khan’s performance of a drunken junior artist in the movie ‘Om Shanti Om’ and expressed pity that these actors are the role models of country’s young and old people and they convey a wrong message.
Ramadoss had earlier criticised Saif Ali Khan, for endorsing Lays Chips and even cited the actor’s heart attack in relation to his brand endorsement. (ANI)
