A beardless Kabir Bedi’s long affair with Wills cigarettes

Got the first glimpse of a beardless Kabir Bedi in a Marlboro Man avatar, thanks to Memsaab. And now here’s another advertisement from the same ‘Start a long affair’ Wills Filter Kings series showing Kabir Bedi (Difficult to recognise him without the beard. That distinctive nose was the clue) in a library, cigarette in hand, absorbed in a book on Mughal paintings.

You can’t smoke inside libraries nowadays, unless it your own private library.
