Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn have landed themselves into legal trouble for promoting ‘gutka’ and ‘pan masala’. Recently, social media was abuzz after Akshay Kumar endorsed a pan masala brand. After getting slammed left, right and centre, Akshay finally released an official statement and apologised to his fans.

According to Times now, Muzaffarpur-based activist Tamanna Hashm has filed a case against Shah Rukh, Big B, Ajay and Ranveer under sections 467, 468, 439 and 120B. The chargesheet also includes, “misusing their popularity for promoting ghutka only in greed of money.” Reportedly, the case has been accepted by the court and the matter will be heard on May 27.

Last year in October, Big B terminated his contract with a tobacco brand. His office later released an official statement that read, “When Mr Bachchan became associated with the brand, he wasn’t aware it falls under surrogate advertising. Now, he has terminated the contract with the brand, has written to them about his termination, and has returned the money received for the promotion.”

Akshay too shared a statement on the entire episode that read, “I am sorry. I would like to apologise 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 not 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. The brand might continue airing the ads till the legal duration of the contract that is binding upon me, but I promise to be extremely mindful in making my future choices. In return I shall forever continue to ask for your love and wishes.”
