SRK promises to quit smoking after Don 2

Mumbai: At a time when actor Hrithik Roshan has been propagating among his family and friends, the side effects of smoking, his close friend Shahrukh Khan seems less likely to kick the butt anytime soon.

It was learnt that a book on how to quit smoking helped Hrithik give up on this habit. Reportedly he has been passing on the same book to his smoker buddies in Bollywood including Sanjay Dutt, Bobby Deol and others.

Shahrukh, when asked as to whether Hrithik approached him, said "I know this is a bad thing but the habit doesn`t leave me. I am trying hard. Even if someone says it to me or not, I know about the ill-effects of smoking. I will try it and give it up on my own. I know it is not a good thing."

"People ask me every day when I will quit smoking… now I am feeling guilty. I am trying to smoke less," he said.

There were several occasions when Shahrukh had vowed to give up this dangerous habit. Even, on World No Tobacco Day, he had said he would try to give up smoking and then reiterated it during the promotions of `Ra.One`. But he is yet to keep his word.

Now, SRK says he will think of kicking the habit after his upcoming film, `Don 2`, which releases on December 23.

"After `Don 2` releases I will get some time to start working out, getting into healthier regime. I would like to say that smoking is a bad thing and one must not do it," he said.
