Actor and producer Sheheryar Munawar, who stars in one of the latest releases, Parey Hut Love featuring an ensemble cast including Maya Ali, Zara Noor Abbas, Ahmed Ali Butt and many others, recently took to social media and urged people to quit smoking while claiming that he is trying to do the same.
Munawar shared a shot from his film PHL’s poster shoot on his official Instagram handle, in which he’s holding a cigarette and captioned it, “Disclaimer: smoking is a disgusting habit which I’ve struggled with and hopefully can kick it soon.”
The actor admitted that photographers glamorize smoking in shoots, however he stressed that it is injurious to health and there is nothing cool about smoking. “To all the kids reading this, don’t take it up! It’s not cool. However for some reason all my photographer friends feel it has a cinematic appeal to it when taking pictures. So what I’ve decided is that if I do put up such pictures I’ll always put a disclaimer with the caption: smoking kills,” he added.
We certainly appreciate the actor’s effort of acknowledging his own bad habit and working towards quitting smoking while realizing his responsibility as a public figure. Way to go Sheheryar!
