Indian celebrities endorse a range of products from luxury jewellery to the simple Indian ganji. There was a time when celebs deterred from endorsing condoms but that changed when Ranveer Singh came into the picture. However, even in 2021, there are a few things that celebs still refuse to endorse no matter how much they’re paid – alcohol, cigarettes and gambling cards.

And for good reason. The Kerala High Court has now sent a notice to Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, actors Tamannaah Bhatia and Aju Varghese for their endorsement of online rummy games.

A bench of the Kerala HC headed by Chief Justice S Manikumar was hearing a petition against the rise of online rummy games and subsequently sent notices to the celebrities. The court also sought a reply from the Kerala government on the same.

“Online Rummy games are becoming more and more popular. It should be legally prohibited. Other states have done the same. Kerala has a 1960 law. But no other steps have been taken. It does not include the topic of online rummy. The stars, who are the brand ambassadors, attracted the audience and took part in the competition. Online Rummy is within the limits of gambling,” said Pauly Vadakkan, a Thrissur native while filing his petition.
