In the last few months, there has been a lot of furore caused over depiction of smoking scenes in films. Now students from various schools of Delhi have written postcards / letters to Kareena Kapoor asking her to refrain from smoking on-screen. It's common knowledge that Kareena's latest release Heroine has the actress puffing away to glory in quite a few scenes.
The school students wrote to the actress as a part of HRIDAY's (Health Related Information Dissemination Amongst Youth) ongoing campaign against depiction of tobacco use in films. Actors are a role-model for young school and college going kids and hence showing actors light up a cigarette on screen doesn't set a good example.
HRIDAY had also written to Heroine director Madhur Bhandarkar urging him to abide by the notification and gave reference of movies who have already complied with it. While precious little can be done now considering Heroine has already released, it remains to be seen if Kareena takes this request of her young fans seriously and refrains from smoking on-screen in her forthcoming films.

The national award winning director Madhur Bhandarkar has been invited by The Cairo International Film Festival to join the International Jury. They will be launching their 35th edition of the film festival starting November 27 to December 6, 2012. This is not the first time Madhur is going to be a part of the film festival. In 2010, a retrospect of Madhur's five films had taken place at the festival. They had screen Chandni Bar, Page 3, Corporate, Traffic Signal and Fashion at the 33rd Cairo International Film Festival, two years ago.
"I am delighted to be a part of the International Jury for the 35th edition of Cairo International Film Festival. I love the theme that they have 'Positive thinking revolution and freedom'", says Madhur.
Many big names from Hollywood have been associated with this prestigious film festival like Salma Hayek, Samuel L Jackson, Bruce Willis and Bill Murray. The film festival has been the centre of global attention due to the dramatic events of the Egyptian Revolution and its aftermath, which brought about a regime change. The country is now celebrating a new beginning and the festival plays its historic role as light house of culture, art and creativity.
Madhur has been chosen to be a part of the International Jury because of his contribution to Indian cinema that has been recognised all over the world.
The first trailer of the much anticipated movie Heroine was launched on Wednesday. Actress Kareena Kapoor and director Madhur Bhandarkar talk to NDTV about their upcoming film.
