Salman Khan has taken to chewing gum in a bid to stick to his no-smoking stand

Salman Khan, who has vowed not to smoke, seems to be adamant about kicking the butt. For a while now, the star has refrained from lighting up and he seems to be staying true to his word. But not without chewing gum! While shooting for the Bigg Boss promos recently, the star was spotted not lighting up even once. Normally Sallu reaches out for his cigarette pack after every shot. But onlookers were surprised to see the star determined not to puff away.

Says a unit source, “He shot for the reality show’s promos for two days right through the night. Everyone was surprised to see this drastic change in Salman. There has been buzz for the last two months about him not smoking but it is for real.” Adds the source, “He was carrying packets of chewing gum. Whenever he felt the urge, he would chew gum. He was heard telling unit folks he pops bubble gum in his mouth whenever he feels like smoking.”

Buzz is that he took the decision after his struggle with illness in the past year. He has decided to follow a healthy routine so as to not hamper the recovery process. And smoking is top-most of the 46-year-old star’s what-not-to-do list.
