SRK, Akshay Kumar & Ajay Devgn Served Notices For Endorsing Tobacco Brand

Date:

New Delhi: The Central Government, prompted by a contempt petition, has sent notices to actors Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, and Ajay Devgn concerning their participation in tobacco company advertisements, as reported by PTI on Saturday.

Earlier, Justice Rajesh Singh Chauhan’s bench had directed the central government to address concerns raised by the petitioner, who sought action against acclaimed actors and dignitaries endorsing gutka companies. Despite the petitioner’s representation to the government on October 22, no action had been taken, as claimed by the petitioner.

During the contempt petition hearing, the high court had issued a notice to the Cabinet Secretary of the central government. On Friday, Deputy Solicitor General SB Pandey informed the High Court that the Centre had issued show cause notices to Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, and Ajay Devgn.

The court was also apprised of Amitabh Bachchan sending a legal notice to a gutka company, which continued to display his advertisement despite the termination of his contract with them.
