Many Bollywood celebrities promote brands and endorsements. These endorsements give celebrities handsome money and a chance to sell a product that has their name and face. Amitabh Bachchan is probably the biggest superstar in the entertainment industry. Recently, he was seen in the Kamla Pasand Pan Masala advertisement. Previously, Ajay Devgn and Shah Rukh Khan were also seen in Pan Masala advertisement. Now, celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan and Ranveer Singh have also joined the party. However, Amitabh Bachchan’s campaign for Kamla Pasand Pan Masala alongside Ranveer Singh did not go down well among his fans. The fans question his decision to appear in the Pan Masala advertisement.
Amitabh Bachchan is one of the biggest superstars in Bollywood. He has been in the industry for more than five decades. He was last seen in the movie Chehre. The audience appreciated his performance. Currently, he is hosting Kaun Banega Crorepati Season 13. Amitabh Bachchan is quite active on social media. Recently, in one of his Facebook posts, a fan commented and asked why he promoted Pan Masala. The comment reads,
“Why did you need to make a pan masala commercial, Amitabh Bachchan? Sir, you are a wonderful example for crores of people, and you inspire crores of people. But by advertising this pan masala, you’re sending the negative message to society.”
Responding to the user, Amitabh Bachchan commented,
“Sir, please accept my apologies. if someone is doing well in their company, we should not question why we are joining them. Yes, if there is a business, we must assess ourselves. You could think I shouldn’t have done that, but I do get paid for it. Such petty comments are neither flattering to you or other artists in our field.”
“There are many workers in our company, and they, too, earn labour and money in some way. Furthermore, please refrain from using the term ‘tutpunjiya.’ Coming from you, that doesn’t seem good. It’s also unfair to the rest of our industry’s workers.”
