Celebrity endorsements are getting stranger by the day but this one manages to take the cake! The legal case against the song
Munni Badnaam Hui
has led to Zandu Balm roping in Malaika Arora Khan as their brand ambassador.
The song refers to Zandu Balm in one of its line. As hilarious as that might sound, Malaika
Arora is now the face of Zandu balm along with Telugu star Junior NTR.
A source told
, "The legal suit slapped by the makers on Zandu Balm on Arbaaz Khan, who produced
, the film which had the song, led to a compromise where they agreed that Malaika would finally endorse the product."
Malaika Arora, who regained her lost fame with
, said that it was only fair that she should endorse the product. "This song has become an anthem on the dance floor and the line with Zandu Balm makes people go crazy. It's only fair that we endorse the product."
However, the Telugu star had a different reason for accepting the offer. He told the tabloid, "This endorsement made sense to me. Also, I get to share screen space with one of India's hottest stars. I'd have been a fool to have rejected this offer."
