MUMBAI: The latest actress to shoot with the Indian cricket captain is South sensation, Asin. The actress shot for the Big Bazaar commercial with Mahendra Singh Dhoni at a studio in Film City.
Actresses teaming up with cricketers have proven to be an exciting combination for advertisers. MSD has shot with Bipasha Basu for the Reebok commercial in Hong Kong and this is the second time that the cricket captain has been roped in to lure customers for a product with another actress.
Asin signed the clothing company sometime in April and had earlier shot a print campaign for them. But this is the first television commercial for the actress with this brand. Asin shot with Dhoni for the entire day, which included several dress changes. The mood of the shoot was full of fun as the duo kept playing games with each other and at the end of it, Asin said, "MSD was great fun. I had a ball shooting with him."
With Asin’s shooting schedule for her Indo-Japanese film still in the pipeline and Dhoni, taking a welcome cricket from international cricket till September, the clothing company got the two celebrities together for the ad campaign which will hit television screens by mid August.
