Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh to feature in new ad, their first project together as a married couple
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh make a formidable power duo in Bollywood. While the two continue to flourish in their respective careers, they are coming together for a new advertisement, their first project together after their wedding last year.
According to a report in Mint, the couple will star in an ad for an electronics brand. They will replace Amitabh Bachchan, who was previously the face of the brand.
Meanwhile, Deepika and Ranveer were in London last week for the inauguration of her wax statue at Madame Tussauds museum.
Ranveer on Friday posted several photographs of himself with Deepika’s wax statue. In one of the pictures, he can be seen with Deepika and her wax model. He wrote: “DP 2.0! Original toh...mere paas hai (I have the original Deepika)! Two much to handle.” To that, Deepika jokingly said: “Now you know where to go when you miss me too much.”
On getting the wax statue, Deepika had earlier said: “After I got a call from Madame Tussauds, I thought ‘What is the purpose of this, why are we doing this, or what is it that my fans will remember me for, remember my figure for, what is it that I would like to leave behind’, and the cause of mental health is very close to my heart, it is something that I am extremely passionate about.
“I said that’s it, I would like for my fans when they see my figure I hope it reminds them of someone who did something for the cause of mental illness, who worked towards creating awareness and de-stigmatising mental illness.
“I hope that it gives people a sense of upliftment and a sense of hope. I hope that message comes through.”
