Akshay Kumar's old cigarette ad

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar is in news for quite some time now. A day after Akshay Kumar stepped back from the Vimal Pan Masala advertisement facing massive backlash for endorsing a tobacco brand, an old photo of the actor promoting a cigarette brand is ruling the Internet.

Laxxmi Bomb actor shared an apology note on Thursday on Instagram which read I am sorry. I would like to apologize to you, all my fans, and well-wishers. Your reaction over the past few days has deeply affected me. While I have not and will endorse tobacco, I respect the outpouring of your feelings in light of my association with Vimal Elaichi. With all humility, I step back. I have decided to contribute the entire endorsement fee towards a worthy cause, he concluded.

It didn’t take time for people to dig up the old advertisement of the actor promoting the Red and White cigarette. People blamed Akshay Kumar for lying in his apology note. On one side the actor writes in his apology note that he hasn’t promoted any such brand and on the other hand his old photo endorsing cigarettes goes viral. One user commented, since it is an honest clarification, I’d wish there was honesty in the statement Akki sir.

Another user said, whenever I go to movies and see the ad of Akshay Kumar is doing that Padman and asking to buy sanitary pads instead of cigarettes, I just remember this ad from my childhood. Sacchi Red and White peene waalo ki baat hi kuch aur hai, he concluded.

It all started a few days ago when Akshay Kumar became the brand ambassador of the Vimal Pan Masala brand alongside Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan. However, after receiving massive criticism on social media, the actor announced his discontinuation with the brand.

Johar also revealed that he felt awkward when Katrina Kaif and Vicky Kaushal were getting married. However, he got a sense of peace when people told him that even Anurag Kashyap was not invited to their wedding.

Meanwhile, on December 9 of last year, Vicky and Katrina exchanged vows in the tightly guarded city of Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan. Much like Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt’s wedding this year, which had Karan Johar on the guest list but very few other Bollywood superstars, the couple only invited very close ones to their wedding.

Kerala film producers' outfit imposes temporary ban on actor Sreenath Bhasi for abusing anchor

Kerala Film Producers’ Association (KFPA) on Tuesday imposed a temporary ban on the Malayalam actor Sreenath Bhasi for allegedly misbehaving with the female anchor during an interview.

Reportedly, the 34-year-old actor was giving an interview for a YouTube channel for his upcoming film, Chattambi. During the interview, the actor got furious at a question asked by the anchor, and he started abusing her and the crew members.

Following this, the anchor lodged a complaint with the KFPA. Based on the complaint, Maradu Police arrested the Bheeshma Parvam actor.

The actor was produced before the KFPA on Tuesday. He was released on bail, but he has been temporarily banned from working in films. However, the actor was permitted to complete the shooting of his ongoing films or other projects.

M Ranjith, a president of KFPA told that Bhasi had accepted his mistake and that’s why they are limiting the disciplinary action to a temporary ban.

Another complaint has been filed with KFPA alleging that the actor broke the terms of their contract by taking home an additional fee for the film. Renjith said Bhasi had agreed to reimburse the additional fee.

Sreenath Bhasi is an Indian actor and singer who works predominately in Malayalam films. He started his career as a Radio Jockey on Red FM 93.5. He gained recognition in the film Da Thadiya. He was a part of the Christian alternative metal band named Crimson Wood and is currently the vocalist of an experimental djent band from Kerala.

Sreenath Bhasi will be next seen in Abhilash S Kumar’s Chattambi, also starring Mythili, Chemban Vinod Jose, Guru Somasundaram, Grace Antony, and Binu Pappu. He has several other projects in his kitty, which include Idi Mazha Kaatu, Unlock, Khajuraho Dreams among others.

Malayalam actor Sreenath Bhasi gets arrested for abusing anchor during interview

Sreenath Bhasi

Malayalam actor Sreenath Bhasi was booked by Maradu police for allegedly abusing the anchor during an interview.

Reports said the case against Bhasi was filed last week after a journalist complained that the actor used foul language against her and other crew members.

The arrest was made under sections 354 A (1) (IV), 509 and 294 B of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Section 354 A (1) (IV) of IPC deals with the offence of making sexually coloured remarks. Section 509 deals with word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman, while section 294 B deals with uttering any obscene song, ballad or words, in or near any public place.

The incident happened during the actor’s film Chattambi’s promotions when the anchor asked him to rate his co-stars on the basis of their rowdiness. Bhasi refused to answer the question following which the anchor asks him to leave on camera. After Bhasi called it a ‘silly’ question, the anchor asked the crew to stop filming.

Reports said Bhasi verbally abused the crew once the camera was turned off. Following the incident, the entertainment portal posted a video on their channel and alleged that Bhasi threw sexist abuses on two women anchors.

The crew member of the YouTube channel said the channel deviates from the usual hard news and instead focuses on funny questions to spread the word about the film as they are an online channel. The crew member also informed that the makers prefer funny questions when they approach the channel for film promotions.

Further, the crew member said Bhasi did not find any questions befitting his status and it is goodwill and entertainment value that fuels an upcoming actor’s success.

His behaviour was not befitting of a lead actor, especially one who comes to promote his film, the crew member concluded.

Sreenath Bhasi was arrested on Monday after being summoned by the police for inquiry. The police have asked him to submit a video clip of the interview to check what pushed him to abuse the anchors and the crew members, the reports said.
