With the constant upheaval attributed to the Indo-Pak conflict and the subsequent banning of Pakistani celebs after it, it seems that the best of the nation’s heartthrobs are venturing into advertisements to keep their stardom truly relevant. Don’t know whom we’re talking about? Then, clearly you haven’t checked out the latest Pepsi ad featuring Fawad Khan and Syra Shahroz!
Starring two of Pakistan’s most favourite stars, the ad takes us to a party where we find Khan looking rather diverted, of course, only until he finds Pepsi and then the fun begins as the bottle cap twists. From tapping beats to a crackling on-screen relationship, the TVC reminds us why we cannot get enough of our celebs! However, this is where all our positive comments end.
Lasting for almost a minute, the ad manages to be yet another hackneyed try that relies on star-power a little too much and truly forgets that an interesting narrative always goes a long way. Plus, if that weren’t enough, would it have been too much to ask for more glimpses of the actress? We think it was since we couldn’t see more than a few scenes showing the diva!
