After grabbing headlines for her size zero figure, actress Kareena Kapoor has chosen to endorse Sony's newly launched half-inch thin notebook VAIO X. The product goes well with her looks - thin and lightweight, the actress said.
"The whole size zero thing in India has more to do with people being slim and lightweight. And I am slim and lightweight. And so is this laptop. I think this new laptop is very chic and sexy and people also often associate me with these qualities," Kareena told reporters at a press conference here.
As part of the tie up, the actress will be a part of the brand campaign including TV commercials and print advertising.
"I believe in Sony products and I am privileged that they have signed me. They believe in cutting edge technology and innovate a lot and I am glad to be their ambassador since I associate myself with quality," added Kareena, who was hoping that the company spokesperson would gift her a VAIO X laptop.
Kareena says though she isn't very tech-savvy, she uses the Internet quite regularly. "I use the Internet often and since I am a frequent traveller and I'm out of the country most of the time, I like to be connected through a laptop," she said.
The new Sony VAIO X is 655 grams and has an 11.1 inch screen display. The range starts from Rs.64,990 and will be available at Sony Centre stores and retail partners across the country.
The 29-year-old is currently awaiting the release of her film Kurbaan.
