Later he also tweeted about anti smoking blurbs in the middle of the film scenes. He said, Anti-smoking blurbs in the middle of film scenes spoil the viewing experience,even for non-smokers. People laugh aloud.

Woody Allen recently decided not to release his latest work ‘Blue Jasmine’ in India objecting to the anti-smoking film and warning that the government of India,in all its wisdom,insists on inserting into all films.
