New Delhi: After the parliamentary panel on consumer affairs, in its recommendations on the Consumer Protection Bill, 2015, called for stringent provisions, including jail term up to five years and penalty of up to Rs 50 lakh if a celebrity endorsed product misfires, Sidharth Malhotra spoke his mind on the issue. 

Sid was quizzed over the same at the launch of LeEco's LeSuperphone. He was quoted as saying, "I think a law has not been passed, only talks are on. When the rule will come, we will follow the law. It is our responsibility to know more when we're endorsing a product. But we don't manufacture those products".

Sidharth added, "There will be some points under the law too, and we will follow what the government tells us to. We don't manufacture, we just become the face and communicate like the way we promote our films. We are not claiming that we have made the products".
