The government has lifted the ban on showing smoking scenes in movies but internationally acclaimed actor Kabir Bedi is not happy and says the rule to show statutory warning during such scenes will be a distraction too.

"Disclaimers before and after film apart, mandatory banner warnings during smoking scenes are a violation of creative rights. Breaks attention," Kabir tweeted.

The government had Tuesday informed the Supreme Court that it would shortly permit smoking scenes in films - though with the strict stipulation that one of the actors in the scene warns viewers that "smoking kills", while a static message would be displayed in the course of the scene showing smoking.
