Making everyday life more ‘masaledaar’, Kurkure, one of India’s most loved snack brands, has launched two innovative limited-time innovations– Out of Control Chaat and ‘Uncensored Tadka flavours that offer a burst of surprising sensations. The TVC film featuring Kurkure’s brand ambassador, Akshay Kumar, and popular television actor, Kritika Kamra, captures how the new flavours can tickle consumers’ needs for fun by revealing their dramatic and entertaining avatar.
The Limited-Time Offerings (LTOs) are aimed at deepening consumer connect and providing consumers with unique experiences. Perfectly embodying the spirit of the brand of adding a spark of ‘quirky masti’ to everyday lives. Kurkure Out Of Control Chaat and Kurkure Uncensored Tadka flavours are lip smacking and bring surprising sensations that generate unpredictable taste moments to make everyday more masaledaar.
The campaign film opens with Akshay Kumar and Kritika Kamra celebrating their wedding anniversary with friends and family. Both of them exchange anniversary presents, Kritika opens her gift and is excited to see a diamond necklace while Akshay is overjoyed to receive Kurkure’s new limited-time flavours in the gift box. He immediately opens the Kurkure pack, and starts munching on it. At this moment, Kritika seeks a compliment by asking Akshay, if the necklace looks good on her. Distracted by the two Kurkure flavours, Akshay surprises the audience by saying that Kritika looks ‘chatpati’ and ‘masaledaar’. The next moment, Akshay snaps and realizes that it is the new Kurkure flavours that have unleashed his unpredictable and ‘hatke’ side in front of all the guests.
Sharing his thoughts on the launch and the campaign, Akshay Kumar, Kurkure’s Brand Ambassador said, “Over its long, vibrant journey, Kurkure has had a special place in families across Indian households. With its quirky storytelling and out-of-the-box approach, it has always made family time more ‘chatpata’, masaledaar and full of fun. The new limited-time flavours once again offers a masaledaar, OTT and an unmatched experience with their superior flavours and surprising sensations. As always, I had a great time while shooting for the campaign and I hope that these ‘hatke’ flavours offer an exciting experience to consumers in true Kurkure-style.”
“It was certainly a fun and ‘chatpata’ experience shooting for the Kurkure TVC. The newly-launched flavours – Out of Control Chaat and Uncensored Tadka – are simply sensational and add some much needed ‘masala’ to everyday situations, making them enjoyable and entertaining. The distinct flavours combined with Akshay’s dynamic personality made the experience even more memorable for me! I sincerely hope that the audience enjoys these limited-time offerings and the TVC”, added popular actress, Kritika Kamra.

Recently, a behind-the-scenes footage from the campaign’s TVC shoot went viral on social media, wherein Kritika Kamra was seen commenting on the lack of efforts put in by the director, Uzer Khan.

She further added that it was all in good humour and that she’s excited to work with Uzer in the future as well. This reveal of the prank, which initially got netizens speculating, left them smiling and generated widespread curiosity amongst consumers to try out the new Kurkure flavours for themselves.
