Following the footsteps of Tamil actor Ajit, southern actress Shriya Saran too has decided not to endorse any soft drink brands.

"I did a soft drink ad some time back. Later, a mother came to me and said that her child started consuming more of that drink after seeing my ad. It made me measure my actions," said Shriya, who teamed up with Tamil superstar Rajnikant in Sivaji: The Boss.

A soft drink ad fetches the actresses Rs.5-6 million and one just has to shoot for four-five days for the commercial, while for a movie one has to slog for months and the remuneration is not as good.

Apart from Tamil films, Shriya also featured in Hindi movies Awarapan and Mission Istaanbul.
