UP has a large vulnerable population, with nearly 35.5% tobacco users (Smokers 13.5% , Tobacco chewers 29.4%), and hence is an ideal market for this movement. Rusan Pharma’s brand 2baconil®aims to empower the tobacco users to quit tobacco with their movement #JeetoKhudse.
Anuj Sharma, Actor, said, “I have associated with the movement JeetoKhudse to help create awareness amongst the younger & older generation about how harmful it is to consume any form of tobacco. Given my profession, though sometimes our screen characters portray smoking/chewing tobacco as a part of their role & sometimes we tend to carry forward these habits in our real life as well.
“I personally feel it is my responsibility to shed some light on the ill effects of tobacco consumption & help myself personally & others for the better. Through the JeetoKhudse movement by 2baconil®, I would like to motivate people that it is possible to quit,” Sharma added.
The campaign includes a launch film featuring Anuj Sharma, wherein he encourages tobacco users to take the pledge to win against the habit. Easy to understand video guides in English & Hindi explaining how the 2baconil® Nicotine Patch Therapy works have been launched.
