The teaser of Dhanush’s Maari released recently has come in for huge criticism from his fans as well as netizens as it shows him smoking cigar.
The teaser, which lasts less than a minute, shows Dhanush gearing up for a stunt-sequence as he emerges from behind a parked vehicle which is smashed by goons. Already, Dhanush courted controversy by featuring in smoking sequences in his hugely successful Velaiyilla Pattathari last year.
Critics say that Dhanush, the national award-winning actor, has to display some sort of responsibility towards the society by staying away from featuring in smoking sequences. They want to know whether Dhanush is of the strong and misplaced impression that smoking alone is a sign of manliness.
