Katrina Kaif is one of Bollywood’s reigning leading ladies right now and also undoubtedly one of the best. She is also a very classy person who has always remained dignified. No doubt, that has landed her many endorsements and advertising deals. One of the most popular ads featuring her are of a mango flavored beverage, where she is seen seductively and suggestively performing. This ad has been the subject of many online jokes and also many stand-up comedian’s acts.
Well, looks like Vir Das will have none of this and feels that this ad is extremely sexist and demeaning to women. As part of his endorsement of a deodorant brand, he is seen in a new video where he is seen recreating some popular advertisements inclusing Katrina’s mango beverage one. The similarities are uncanny as well as his performance which is downright hilarious. Not just that, he also is seen recreating spoof versions of popular advertisements.
He shared the video on Facebook saying, “Alright! Had a blast doing this. I wore some dresses and pointlessly fondled fruit smile emoticon I’m doing something cool with He! We are launching a new product, Taking on sexist advertising, and raising money to support women’s welfare charities! Join the movement with HE Be Interesting because Asli Men Respect Women. #HEResepect #RespectWomen Spread the word!”
Well, it goes without saying that the ‘Go Goa Gone’ actor believes these ads are sexist and that he is taking a stand by taking a different route to promote his brand. Tell us what you think in the comments!
