Shaan, famous Bollywood singer, was on Tuesday announced as the ‘Tobacco Control Ambassador of India' by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. “Initiation into tobacco use happens in younger days. Considering the fan following for Shaan among children and youths, we are sure that he will help spread the anti-tobacco message effectively,” B.K. Prasad, Joint Secretary of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said at a function at the Tata Memorial Hospital here.

The singer also launched his music video on tobacco-control, titled ‘ Life se panga mat le yaar' (Don't mess with life, my friend) on the occasion.
