Saif condemns the use of tobaccoActor Saif Ali Khan is known to play diverse roles, not limiting himself to one genre or type. In Go Goa Gone he plays the role of a Russian mafia lord, Boris. When Saif got to know that Boris smokes a cigar in the film, he insisted that he will shoot a video message addressing the youth about the harm caused by tobacco. This video is going to play before the film begins in, which he has said that tobacco use of any sort is injurious to health. Off-screen, the actor doesn't smoke.
Saif says, "I think smoking is a form of drug abuse. I do not believe in censorship, as in blanket banning. An appropriate age certificate must be set and then enforced. That is what the censor board is for. However I understand with this freedom comes a social responsibility and I would like to warn the youth that smoking is a very dangerous habit. It may seem cool now but there is nothing cool about lung or heart disease. I quit smoking after almost suffering a heart attack five years ago. Purely bought on by my smoking... clearly It is not worth it!"...being a human...
