As per the government, even if the pan masala products don’t contain tobacco and nicotine, they contain addictive areca nuts (as addictive as tobacco and alcohol) which cause cancer.The government urged the celebrities not to advertise pan masala products as youth take them as role models and consume those products.

Following the appeal of the Delhi government, Sunny Leone promised not to endorse any product related to pan masala in the future. The government also asked the actors to join the anti-tobacco campaign to bring awareness about the lakhs of deaths due to oral cancer every year.
