ALCOHOLIC NO MORE – Hopefully, a matinee idol is now abstaining from alcohol. A year or so ago, his promising career was nearly finished because of that disgusting incident on their way to a show abroad.

Aside from forgetting good manners and right conduct, too much alcohol also damages one’s looks, bloated face and bulging stomach. It happened to a very fine character actor and an equally fine lead actor and box-office star. But then they are said to have “reformed.”
