Tough on Tobacco.
The band and video crew seem to have had a lot of fun during the making of the video. Director Samira Kanwar shared her favourite moment from shooting the video with us: “We were waiting for a shot in the taxi. A car pulled up next to us, with an entire family in it, rolled down the window and asked, ‘Bhaiyya, Bandstand khidhar hain?’ Without skipping a beat, Karan, in his impeccable theatre-trained English, responded with a polished ‘Go straight, take the first left, and then a right at the end of the road’. The four of them just stared deadpan into the car. They really hadn’t expected perfect English from a taxi driver! We died laughing!”
Produced by Babble Fish Productions, the video was shot in Mumbai, and addresses the issue of drunk driving. Watch it right here—
