Singer Shaan feels that films these days are portraying alcohol and smoking as a very normal thing and he wants this trend to be discouraged.
"There are a lot of songs being made even on alcohol these days which depict such things as easy and friendly. Every other scene today has someone having shots and enjoying. I think they should be more responsible and avoid drinking and smoking in movies," the 39-year-old said here Sunday at an event for World No Tobacco Day.
Every year May 31 is observed as World No Tobacco Day.

Zarine's last release was "Housefull 2" and she is currently shooting for a Tamil film "Karikalan" and is also expected to be a part of "Partner 2."

"I saw 'Ishaqzaade' and I thought both Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti were outstanding and fabulous," he added.
