Imran Khan set to file a PIL against new ruling…

The new law raising the alcohol consumption age to 25 in Maharashtra, is not being favored by many Bollywood stars. Actor Imran Khan appears to have taken it upon himself to file a PIL against the new ruling.

Currently, media is abuzz that the ‘Delhi Belly’ protagonist Imran Khan feels that raising of the drinking age to 25 in Maharashtra is absolutely unfair, as when people can vote and marry at 18 and have kids at 21, then why cant they chose to drink or not to drink at an early age.

Imran says he doesn’t endorse nor wish to promote drinking among youth. But what he’s concerned about is the right of freedom to choose for the youngsters who are mature enough to take important decisions like marriage.

Imran’s call to action has his I Hate Luv Storys co-star Sonam Kapoor saying cheers as well.

“If you can vote, get married, have children, drive a car… why on earth can’t you drink? It’s ridiculous we are not living in the dark ages,” said Sonam.

Amitabh Bachchan has tweeted: “On drinking age limit increased to 25 ! Err .. old and mature enough to vote for the country, or join army ..and fight for the nation…but not old and mature enough to be told when you are allowed to drink ???? Strange ?!!!! (sic) .”

Many other Bollywood stars have also spoken against the ruling.

  1. i don’t think making drinking at a older age will help…take a look at that cad salman he was in his late 30s when he drank n murdered someone after drinking..

  2. Voting doesn’t hurt anyone. Actually voted don’t even count cause all governments are corrupt and they put in power whoever they can control. Voting is a sham. Going to war in defense of your country is patriotic, you give up your life to defend those you love and your beliefs (although I still think that what happens in a war is controlled by those in power, people who fight are just marks that just make the game look interesting). Drinking at a young age can make you alcoholic if not properly controlled. That’s why they have a lot of alcoholics in Western countries. People who consume alcohol not only hurt themselves but others. Girls who can’t handle their liquor end up in strange person’s bed, things go wrong accident happen and etc. So, in the end. I guess with the world going green and shit I think we should also try to sober up. It’s good for a healthy body and mind.

    There is a tale I have heard. I can’t quite remember where I heard it but it’s related to alcohol.

    So there was this man who talked to the devil and the devil gave him a choice. You wanna kill a person or do you wanna drink? So the guy obviously chose alcohol (like I would’ve, it seems harmless. NO? I mean why would you wanna actually kill a person?) The guy thought he can control himself but what happened was that he consumed alcohol and what he did afterwards is unbelievable. He went home and raped his mother and killed his father.

    Consuming Alcohol seems harmless but it’s not. I heard this many years ago and it stuck with me. My friend happily married accidentally slept with a wrong guy at a party cause she had a drink which had something in it. So in the end the lesson is that Alcohol may not be so harmless. Go Green for the planet and Healthy body and MIND.

    These Bollywood people or Hollywood people are a bunch of asses. Who gives a fuck what they say but they have a responsibility to those who follow them and a message like this is not good for India’s youth.
