If you’re concluding that Deepika Padukone and Farhan Akhtar are going to be seen in a film set in the 80’s or something looking at the picture, no they’re not, they’ve donned those avatars for a certain cola Ad that they’re shooting for. You can actually see Deepika holding a coca-cola bottle while she is sitting on that rickshaw pulled by the funnily dressed Farhan Aktar. So their really good chemistry that we’ve seen in Karthik Calling Karthik is being put to use for a cola commercial this time!
And the best part is that the AD is being made by none other than film-maker Anurag Kashyap while the concept was written by Prasoon Joshi. It will actually be a series of Ads where Deepika Padukone and Farhan Akhtar portray people from different decades.
Here’s what Anurag Kashyap has got to say about the ads and about why he chose Deepika Padukone and Farhan Akhtar, “I loved the concept of taking the cosmopolitan and undoubtedly glamorous icons such as Deepika Padukone and Farhan and putting them in extremely rustic scenarios that appeal to masses across the country. The campaign is very fun, happy, and bubbly.”
And Farhan Akhtar is excited about it too, “extremely excited to partner this brand and to bring this joy to millions of consumers across the country” was what he said, talking about it.
Well, we don’t know about the cola drink bringing joy to us but this really great ad sure will bring us joy once it gets aired on TV..!
