Film characters are usually inspired by real people and their stories. The reason they portray smoking is because smoking is again reflect something. These actors/ characters reflect a part of us, the part that is not settling, the part that wants more from life, the part constantly looking for growth and is ready to hustle in order to achieve the desired goals.
1. Shahrukh Khan-
Whether it’s his personal life or professional, Shahrukh Khan is surely the king of smoking!!
In movies like Don and Devdas, he could be seen at ease with his charming style of smoking. He has been spotted smoking his favourite brands like 555 and Marlboro. But it is a lesser known fact that he recently shifted to the UK-based brand Dunhill and the Swiss brand Davidoff.
The late legendary actor is less-known for smoking but his romantic songs and intense acting but in movies like Taxi driver and Hum Dono, he sported cigarettes with a different class altogether. Two of his legendary songs are still played by youth while enjoying the puffs-
“main zindagi ka saath nibhata chala gaya” and “dum maaro dum”!! He was a fan of Wills and Davidoff cigarette. He loved smoking cigars in the parties and occasionally enjoyed the green stuff too!
3. Steve McQueen-
Again a late legendary actor, he received the pop-title of the “king of Cool” by his and next generations. And my god, he was! Smoking, motorcycles, adventure, babes and fame! He had it all. On screen, he sported cigarettes in movies like Bullit and The Great Escape. Being a true patriot, he loved smoking American brands like Phillip Morris, Natural American Spirit, and L&M etc.
4. Shahid Kapoor-
Kabir Singh! That’s all I will say! The way the character holds the cigarette, the way he lights it, the way he smokes it out! Every scene of the film made the girls fall for him and guys wanting to be like him! No matter how fucked he was, there was a charm of this character.
