Also that they will lodge a formal police complaint against the actor, producer and director if their demand is not met. The NGO's general secretary Shekhar Salkar confirmed the news, saying, "The poster showing Abraham smoking a cigarette promotes the use of tobacco. This is against the law. The poster should be immediately withdrawn." during the weekend, Dishoom made Rs 11.05 cr on Friday, Rs 12.02 crore on Saturday and Rs 14.25 crore on Sunday. The film stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Nargis Fakhri and has been shot largely in Abu Dhabi. Rohit Dhawan directed the movie.
