Sowmya Anbumani, wife of former Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss has filed a police complaint seeking action against the producers of Thuppaki for violating the provisions of the Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products Act (COTPA) 2003.
The first look of Thuppaki featured Vijay smoking a cigar. This has led to lots of trouble for them. Many have voiced against Vijay appearing smoking a cigar.
Meanwhile, the director of the movie A R Murugadoss has been reported as saying in the media that he was unaware of such rules, which imposed restrictions.
