*An Appeal and not Notice*
Cinema star Yash is into many social works and I personally admire him. Health department has appealed to him regarding his new upcoming movie. But this is not a notice. I heard that there is a smoking scene in the cinema and he has been appealed to remove that scene which will give a good message for the society. There are many youths in his fan club and this is applicable for all movies said the Minister.
