Anurag Kashyap fights over No Smoking warning
Anurag Kashyap seems quite stubborn about his film Ugly as the filmmaker is not ready to make any compromises regarding the smoking scenes in the film. Recently, Kashyap refused to feature the disclaimer 'Cigarette smoking is injurious to health' during smoking shots in his film. Also, the film's co-producer and the head of DAR Motion Pictures, Vivek Rangachari has extended his support in this matter. Readers may be aware that last year, the Censor Board became quite stringent about 'Cigarette Smoking' warnings and asked filmmakers to issue this disclaimer in every shot where cigarette is visible. However, Anurag and his team are currently in talks with the Censor Board to sort out this issue. Interestingly, Anurag had made a film called No Smoking with John Abraham way back in 2007 on the subject of smoking. Ugly is slated to release on January 3. 1 month ago

Anurag Kashyaps petition in High Court
Anurag Kashyap will be filing a petition today at the Bombay High Court against the Censor Board as he refused to add the anti-smoking disclaimer in his upcoming film Ugly. The Censor Board asked the director to carry the warning 'Cigarette smoking is injurious to health' in scenes which show the characters smoking. However, Anurag refused to abide by this and was planning to file a petition against the Censor Board after he refused to take the censor certificate for the film. Anurag Kashyap has filed a petition stating that this clearly restraints the rights of filmmakers to freedom of speech and expression. He also claimed that this warning destroys the aesthetic value of a film and distracts audience from the movie thus ruining the experience of watching a film. Anurag thinks that the Health Ministry should take the responsibility for the increasing tobacco usage and should take measures accordingly to curb the use. In the process, films should not be used as an advertisement campaign for anti-smoking. The filmmaker is planning to challenge the court and has refused to accept the pre-condition of inserting an anti-smoking disclaimer and supporting him in this are also the producers of his film Phantom Films Pvt Ltd. and DAR Media Pvt. Ltd.

Saif loses his cool with the Delhi media
Stars getting into verbal scuffles with media persons at press conferences is not unknown. But what transpired in Delhi on Tuesday evening goes beyond the usual press-star conflict. Apparently, when Saif Ali Khan showed up nearly two hours' late in Delhi for an event related to Tigamanshu Dhulia's Bullett Raja, the media persons present at the venue demanded an apology. However Saif, say official reports, refused to apologize arguing it was the Delhi traffic that delayed him. Director Tigmanshu Dhulia who accompanied Saif in Delhi refutes the no-apology reports. "Saif did say sorry to the waiting media persons. But they were not willing to simmer down. They got increasingly restless. It was closed cramped space, and one photographer broke into a scuffle. That's when we quit. We decided to leave without doing the event." Saif has publicly vowed to stay away from Delhi (which is a second-home to the Nawab) for all media promotional activities of his films. But his begum Kareena Kapoor who is with Saif in Delhi now, has counseled Saif to keep his cool in public. Says a source close to the couple, "Kareena has been interacting with the media at press conferences. She knows how tempers can get frayed." This is the second incident of a star getting into a verbal conflict at a public venue. Last week apparently while shooting for Vishal Bhardwaj's Haider in Kashmir, Irrfan Khan was asked by protesting students to snuff out a cigarette that he was smoking. Irrfan, however, denies this incident.
