When I thought of this concept the first question which came to my mind was this is a very common subject,Thousands of films & shortfilms have been already made on this.Every film in theatre starts with a no smoking ad.So the biggest question infront of me was what new & different can I do that people want to watch this & like it.Then I realized I am a vfx Supervisor too so why not create a magic with a combination of real shoot & vfx .This can be a big reason of people wanting to watch it & at the same time I can Spread the message of smoking is injurious to health & there my work started for the project Smoke.
