Chennai: After taking on superstar Rajnikanth for his on-screen smoking, Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss on Sunday advised popular Tamil hero Vijay to stop showing smoking scenes in his films.

“He is an young actor and a large number of youth are following him. I advise him to stop showing smoking scenes in his films. I am requesting this not only as a Union Minister but also as a Tamil and a doctor,” he said.

There was a misconception in the film industry that the films would run successfully only if it had smoking screens, he added.

Ramadoss said he had written to Rajnikanth a few years ago, requesting him not to smoke before the camera as it could have a bad influence on his massive fan following.

His two latest films Chandramukhi and Sivaji – The Boss did not have any smoking scenes and they turned out to be huge successes, setting a record in the history of Tamil film industry, he said.
