veteran actor also advised his fellow actors to refrain from such act.
it will have a negative effect on their health.
“I neither drink
liquor nor smoke. Basically, I want to make it clear to my colleagues in the
industry who are still into drinking and smoking that the actor’s major tools
are his voice and body. You need to exercise the body to keep it in form, to
keep it fit. You need to drill your voice, and cigarette smoking and alcohol do
not complement these exercises. That is if you want to take acting as a
professional calling from which you will earn your living and attend to your
socio-economic needs,” he said.
