Days after Tamil star Vijay was accused of promoting smoking in a poster of AR Murugadoss' Sarkar, Nadigar Sangam Secretary Vishal has been accused of endorsing alcohol in the first look of his upcoming film Ayogya.

The same report states that Ramadoss tweeted in Tamil, claiming that he had written to Vishal urging him to ban smoking in films, in the capacity of the secretary of Nadigar Sangam. However, much to his dismay, Vishal is seen promoting drinking in the poster of his own film. He added that he expected some level of social responsibility from Vishal, given his position of power.

Ramadoss has demanded that the makers of Ayogya pull down the contentious poster at once. However, the makers have not responded to Ramadoss' accusation yet.

A few months ago, his son, PMK leader and MP Anbumani Ramadoss had accused Vijay of promoting smoking in the first look of Sarkar. Sun Pictures, the production house behind Sarkar, were compelled to withdraw the poster after receiving a notice from the Tamil Nadu health department.
