‘Pushpa’ Actor Allu Arjun Rejects Tobacco Commercial, Doesn’t Want Fans To Harm Their Health

A few days ago, Akshay Kumar grabbed several headlines for promoting a brand that sells paan masala and tobacco. Since the actor has been so vocal about health and fitness, people found it terribly hypocritical of him. The massive backlash led Akshay to withdraw his association with the brand.

Amidst all this, ‘Pushpa’ actor Allu Arjun reportedly refused to endorse a tobacco company despite being offered a hefty sum of money. According to Filmfare, Allu Arjun doesn’t consume tobacco himself and doesn’t want his fans to consume the product.

The actor, allegedly, is “well aware of his influence” and didn’t want his fans to harm their health and tobacco consumption could lead to addiction.

Instead, Allu Arjun promotes environmental-friendly activities such as planting trees. Even though he has been seen smoking in many of his films, he says that it’s out of his control. However, he openly speaks about steering clear of harmful substances.
