These days if somebody smokes in public in Hyderabad, the police is charging him Rs.200 fine. State health department and police are not only imposing Rs.200 fine on those smoking in public but are also collecting the amount from most of them. Recently, hero Ram also had to pay Rs.200 fine to the police for smoking in public. Ram had to pay the fine because he was shooting near Charminar for ‘ismart Shankar’ movie being made under the direction of Puri Jagannath. In this movie, Ram is doing a pure mass role. When it is a mass character, the hero has to smoke. That’s why Ram had to smoke at shooting location for a scene. Police immediately imposed a fine on him. So far only commoners were paying fine for smoking in public but for the first time a celebrity has paid the fine and this has become a hot topic. But shooting is shooting, fine is fine. Isn’t it?
