Santhanam promises that he won't promote smoking in his films

Published: 08th June 2019

The first look poster of  Santhanam's next, Dagaalty, featuring the actor lighting a cigarette, was released a couple of days back. However, after facing backlash from various quarters for promoting smoking, the Dhillukku Dhuddu actor has taken to social media to apologize on behalf of the team for the poster.

Dacalty first look poster was inadvertently uploaded. Have realised that it may promote smoking which is injurious to health. Will ensure my future films will never carry such posters," he tweeted.


Dagaalty, also starring Yogi Babu and Rittika Sen, is currently in post-production. While the film's cinematography is handled by Deepak Kumar Padhy, TS Suresh and Shobi are in charge of editing and choreography, respectively. Singer Vijaynarain is making his debut as a music director with Dagaalty. 

Meanwhile, Santhanam is awaiting the release of  Server Sundaram, directed by Anand Balki. He has also signed a couple of new projects, including a Kannan-directorial and another by debutante Johnson, titled A 1 (a) Accused No 1, which has music by Santhosh Narayanan.
