Smoking Troubles For Madhur
National Award winning filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar, whose next, Calendar Girls, revolves around the lives of swimsuit models, will not feature any characters lighting up on screen. The director, who had moved High Court to protest against incorporating the smoking disclaimer in his last film, Heroine, has decided to do away with the smoking scenes in this one as reported by a leading tabloid. All the leading ladies of Madhur’s films were seen smoking as Konkana Sen in Page 3, Priyanka Chopra in Fashion, Bipasha Basu in Corporate and Kareena Kapoor in Heroine. But in Calendar Girls, which is gearing up for a June release, even SuSeth, whose character is inspired by liquor baron Vijay Mallya, too will be seen without his trademark cigar.
