Sizzling Sana Khan has strongly objected to the efforts made by the producers of her upcoming film Nadigayin Dairy (Tamil dubbed version of the Malayalam film Climax) to bring out posters of the film showing her smoking cigar.
Sana plays ‘Silk’ Smitha, Kollywood’s ultimate and unforgettable ‘item girl’ who sizzled on screen for more than fifteen long years before committing suicide in the mid-nineties. Bollywood’s Vidya Balan had earlier played Smitha in The Dirty Picture which won her the first-ever national award for ‘best actress’.
Suresh Krishna, Arvind and host of others are part of the film directed by Anil Kumar. The film is getting ready to hit the screens in Tamil Nadu on 24th May. Sana is banking a lot on this film to make a comeback in Tamil films. With just 10-odd days to go for the release of the film in theatres, Sanaa got to know that posters depicting her smoking cigar were getting readied for publicity.
Shocked to the hilt, Sana has reportedly told the producers not to use those posters for the film’s publicity. It might be recalled that last year, Sana regretted at a press meet about the increasing trend of smoking and drinking among South film actresses. Little would she have imagined at that time that she would find herself in a similar situation and obviously, she doesn’t want to be depicted smoking even for the sake of publicizing her film.
South heroines more under alcohol and cigarette influence: Sana Khan
Addressing to the media, Sana Khan’s bold comments have hurt public sentiments. She will soon debut in Malayalam with another Dirty Picture remake, titled Profile. After Vidya Balan won National honors for the original, it seems every other actress wants to walk the proven road to success.
Sana’s case is no different, as she portrays a glam doll in the upcoming Mollywood flick Profile. Having worked in both North and South industries she had Kollywood releases in Silambattam, Payanam and Aayiram Vilakku. Speaking during the press meet for Profile, she said,
“There is a misconception among people that cigarette habit and alcohol addiction is seen in excess among Hindi actresses. In fact, South Indian heroines are more inclined towards both.”
Taking a leaf out of her personal experience on women down South, Sana argued, “I have seen them staggering under influence of alcohol. But that does not come to light. They carefully conceal those.’
She further added, “There is nothing like Mumbai girl and Chennai Girl. It lies in the way we are brought up. One should not be enslaved by circumstances.” She certainly is bold with her words, let’s see what the picture has to say.
