Marijuana has been a part of Bollywood since the beginning. When they say that creative people smoke up a lot, they are absolutely right because Weed broadens your horizon and helps you imagine things better.
When it comes to acting, Weed often helps actors get into character and do justice to their role and even as a recreational activity, smoking up is something actors are known to do.
A number of celebrities are known for using marijuana on a regular basis. A lot of celebrities have even smoked up on the screen. From Zeenat Aman in Hare Rama Hare Krishna to Deepika Padukone in Dum Maro Dum, a lot of celebs have smoked up on the big screen.
Actors like Abhay Deol, Vir Das, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, and Jimmy Shergill have all been seen smoking up during their shots as well. And it's no strange news that these actors puff while they aren’t shooting as well.
But the funny thing here is that out of so many celebrities who smoke up, only Uday Chopra has come out and openly spoken about the legalization of weed in India?
Uday Chopra put out a tweet once saying that Marijuana is a part of our culture and it should be legalized and it also has medicinal properties. No one really appreciated his thoughts but instead, he was trolled when the Mumbai Police put out a very smart tweet as a reply to him.
Every idea needs an Icon and Bollywood actors actually have the power to influence people for the movement. While a lot of them smoke, they are afraid to speak about this topic and be woke.
