John Abraham No smoking: John Abraham was a hot actor in the first film, and heroines were ready to work with him. But director Anurag Kashyap was sweaty in finding the heroine opposite John in the movie No Smoking.
John Abraham’s career: John Abraham caught everyone’s attention in 2004 with his first film Jism. He came from modeling like a hot hero, and it was difficult for heroines to say no to working with him. John kept doing different types of films and masala films from the beginning.
Finally, John agreed to work in Anurag Kashyap’s film, No Smoking, which Shahrukh Khan refused to KK Menon. But Anurag found it very difficult to see John’s opposite heroine for this film because there were lip-locks and some bed scenes with John’s heroine in the movie.
Ayesha said to the bikini.
Bipasha Basu considered a hot pair with John in those days, also did not agree to be his heroine in this film. Vidya Balan also backed down. Then Ayesha Takia, who started her career with the 2004 film Tarzan – The Wonder Car, became John’s heroine. It was a double role: one John’s wife and the other John’s secretary.
Regarding Ayesha, Anurag believed that she was perfect in this role, but Ayesha said yes to the film only when Anurag said yes to some changes in the script. Ayesha clearly stated that neither she would do bed scenes nor kissing scenes. Earlier, she had left the films of Yash Raj Banners because, in them, the heroine was required to wear a bikini.
What happened in the last meeting
Earlier, Anurag was not ready to change his script. He said there is a demand for kissing and bed scene script with John’s heroine in the film. But before the shooting started, Ayesha made it clear to Anurag that she could not do this scene.
Initially, Anurag stuck to his script, but after that, it is not known what happened that both of them once again had a meeting regarding this film. After this meeting, Anurag made changes to the script.
John used to smoke 99 cigarettes.
Bipasha later joined the film but only for the item song Phoonk’s Debut performance. However, John was against this dance of Bipasha. He believed this made it look like a no-smoking masala Bollywood film.
The film used to communicate against smoking, but John had to smoke 99 cigarettes daily to get into the character during the shooting. Due to this, his lungs were injured, and he had to be treated by a doctor. When this film, released in 2007, came to the box office, no one knew when it went.
