Kishore Kumar and Shammi Kapoor
First of all let’s talk about Kishore Kumar and Shammi Kapoor. The two had worked in a paan masala commercial many years back, which is still available on YouTube. In this advertisement, pan masala was shown associating with dowry. In the advertisement, Shammi Kapoor goes to Kishore Kumar’s house and tells him that the procession will reach exactly at 8. They don’t want anything, they just want that the wedding processions should be welcomed with paan parag.
Just then Kishore Kumar takes out a box of paan parag from his pocket and points it towards Shammi Kapoor and he bursts into laughter. This ad film came in 1985. In this, an important message was given regarding dowry on the pretext of Paan Parag. At that time incidents like demanding dowry and killing the bride for her were very common.
