For the first time, the boy tried smoking cigarettes and fell sick.

On Saturday, doctors at Century Hospital in Hyderabad who has treated the boy said that he is doing well now. Pulmonologist Dr. Rohith Reddy Pathuri said, "Teenagers do get easily influenced by characters like 'Rocky Bhai'. In this case, this young boy took to smoking and fell severely sick after consuming a packet full of cigarettes. Movies are a highly influencing element in our society. Movie-makers and actors have a moral responsibility to not glamorize acts like smoking cigarettes or chewing tobacco or consuming alcohol. Characters like 'Rocky Bhai' have a cult-following and young minds do get influenced by the acts of these demi-gods on screen."

He also added, "Parents of adolescents must ensure they keep a watch on what their children are doing and what factors are influencing their child's acts.
