"I love to be associated with Pepsi." This is what Cafe Chino babe Priyanka Chopra had to say about the ongoing fiasco over dirty colas.

After the report of the Centre for Science and Environment disclosing the dangerous contents in the cold drinks and a notice issued by the Supreme Court to cola companies asking them to disclose their contents, celebrity endorsement to such drinks is being questioned now.

But Priyanka Chopra who is endorsing Pepsi feels otherwise. "I have been drinking Pepsi myself for so many years now and I have never felt any thing that has been alleged. It has never damaged or even had any serious effect on my body. I will continue having Pepsi. Moreover, it's not that we didn't try to find out whether these cold drinks are harmful or not. Whatever information we asked from the company about the contents they had provided us.

After going through all that I decided that it's safe and there is nothing hazardous in Pepsi that I am endorsing now. I don't think there is anything wrong in it because I personally drink Pepsi and I never felt any health hazard because of this. In fact, I have been taking Pepsi before I started doing advertisements for it so I don't think I am doing anything wrong," says Priyanka.

Priyanka claims that she endorses the product she likes and it's not always money that drives her life. Says she, "As I told you that before doing the advertisement, I was a regular consumer of Pepsi, so since the product is close to my heart, I got ready for the commercial. There is no denying the fact that we earn money from commercials, but I endorse the product which I myself use and find fit for use."
