Yash's KGF movie team in trouble as smoking scene in teaser upsets health department

Yash's KGF: Chapter 2 is one of the most exciting films to come out in the year 2021. Directed by Prashanth Neel, the film stars Yash, Sanjay Dutt, Raveena Tandon and Srinidhi Shetty in the lead roles. The makers were supposed to release the teaser of the film on Yash's birthday on January 8. Since the teaser got leaked hours before the release, the makers decided to push ahead the launch on January 7. As expected, the teaser became a huge hit among fans. But, there is some trouble brewing. In the teaser, Yash fires up big cars with his machine gun and walks up to the front to light a cigarette from the red hot gun. The Karnataka Health department has taken offence to this scene and has sent a notice to Yash and the KGF team accusing them of promoting smoking.

 
Ideally, the scene should have a statuatory warning that read, "Smoking is injurious to health." Since, there is no warning, the Health department had asked the team to remove KGF teaser from social media.
