Akshay Kumar who was trolled by Netizens in 2022 over his collabortion and endorsing Vimal Paan Masala along with Ajay Devgan & Shah Rukh Khan is again receiving major backlash as the second advertisement from the same old contract airs. In the new advertisement all the three superstars features along with actress-model Soundarya Sharma.
The video was widely shared on the Internet on Sunday, October 8. In the clip, SRK and Ajay are seen waiting for Akshay in a car on the street near his house. They try to get his attention by honking the car horn. However, Akshay, who has his headphones on, is unaware of the situation.
Shah Rukh then decides to throw a ball towards his glass window, but unfortunately, it hits his neighbour Soundarya's window. After numerous calls were unheard, Ajay opens a packet of pan masala and points towards Akshay's window which manages to grab the actor's attention.
Akshay Kumar on the other hand has finally reacted to all the trolls saying this advertisement was the part of the same old contract which was happened before and did not broke his promise which he made to his fans last year. Akshay has shared post on X to clarify that the Ad which was played during ICC World Cup match between India and Australia on October 8 is not recent. He asked his fans to chill and explain that it was shot on October 13, 2021 and he is no longer associated with the brand. He wrote, "I have not had anything to do with the brand ever since I publicly announce the discontinuation of the endorsement they can leaguardy run the already shot ads till the end of next month."
‘Returns’ as ambassador? Here’s some fact check for you Bollywood Hungama, if by chance you are interested in things other than fake news. These ads were shot on 13th October, 2021. I have not had anything to do with the brand ever since I publicly announced the discontinuation…— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) October 9, 2023
