TV stars reveal their favourite advertisements!


Ads have always been the high point of Indian television.

With their quirky, offbeat and at times even charming messages, we all have our favourite ads.

But when it comes to TV stars, things are a bit different because it also happens that these actors also star in advertisements themselves! But here's looking at which ads do these stars love...


Jasmin Bhasin last seen in Tashan - e - Ishq love Odonil Ad. She says, In the Odonil ad I was featured in, everybody loved my performance.  I got more work and recognition because of that one advertisement. In fact, I actually landed a role in Tashan-e-Ishq also because of it! So yes, that had to be my favourite.

Saurabh Pandey is in awe of Dairy Milk Ad. 'I feel that ad, with the pretty girl running around the cricket pitch, munching a Dairy Milk was one of the most iconic advertisements. It conveyed so many feelings like happiness, freedom, joy and a love for chocolates. And the music, I still remember their chorus, "Kya swad hai zindagi mein..."

Dhara Sunflower Oil is the favorite ad of Ssharaad Malhotraa. When asked about the reason, he adds, "See, I've never gone and bought sunflower oil for myself! But that ad for Dhara Sunflowe oil, with that cute little boy who is sad and wants to leave home. At the railway station he is stopped by his Ramu Kaka, who takes him back home by bribing him with the promise of hot jalebis. It was such a sweet feeling that the ad conveyed. Kind of makes you feel nostalgic about the nineties."

Shashank Vyas replies, "Definitely. The Imperial Blue ad. I love the tagline, which says 'Men will be men'. The whole series of thise ads are quirky, funny and unique. But at the same time, they are apt and very close to real life!'"

Shivin Narang recalls Aamir Khan's Coke ad as he remembers the song of Coke ads by Aamir khan. He further states, "It had that tagline 'Thanda matlab Coca-Cola. I feel that was one of the best ads which had a great impact on consumers.  As a marketing student in my college, I remember giving a presentation on that ad and how It changed the mindset o people. They  started relating thanda, a desi word, with Coke and that advertising campaign proved to be really profitable for the brand too."

Rashami Desai adds, "Yes Kit Kat chocolates ad is my favorite. There is this one Kit Kat ad which I really like, because it's just so cute! It has all these babies dancing around, looking all happy. The background score of the kids singing is also super adorable!"

Mohammad Nazim thinks Polo ads as probably the funniest advertisement. He says, "I saw, where the mom wants the kid to wear a sweater and keeps saying, "Beta, sweater pehno!"
I remember it was so funny and popular at the time. It was just irreverent, yet cute and memorable."

Ankit Bathla adds, "Happy Dent. I remember the Happy Dent advertisements from a couple of years ago. They had all these people chewing Happy Dent and their teeth would start glowing so brightly, they didn't need lights! That was quite funny, and successful too, because I remember them still!"
