The teaser of KGF Chapter:2 was released a few days back and is receiving a thumping response from the viewers across the country. It has already clocked more than 149 million views on Youtube. Meanwhile, the makers have now been served with notices for a scene in the teaser.
In of the sequences in the teaser, we can see Yash blowing up a few jeeps with a machine gun and later lights up a cigarette from the barrel of that gun. Generally, the filmmakers should give statutory warning whenever a drinking/smoking scene is being screened, even if it a teaser.
KGF's teaser didn't feature that statutory warning. The Karnataka State Anti-Tobacco Cell and Health Department have objected this move and served notices to Yash, director Prashanth Neel and producer Vijay Kiragandur. The departments asked the makers to pull down the video from YouTube. The team is yet to respond to the issue.
