Paisa bolta hai! And sometimes, it asks you to do some crazy shit. Like these crazy ass advertisements in which our poor actors made a complete fool of themselves. Seriously, didn’t you guys ever read the script or were you hypnotized?
Whatever the reason may’ve been, chances are you’ll never find any mention of these ads in their CV’s. Ever. So let’s take a look at our favourite celebrities’ not-so-fab moments.
1. Ranveer Singh endorses Rupa Frontline. Catches a tennis ball with his ‘balls’.
Okay, this is whacky even by Ranveer’s standards. Check out the video by Rupa Knitwear in which the dude went bat-shit crazy.
Hairy armpits, check. Random rap song, check. Hitting a fake shark, check. Too bad PETA now plans to voice their displeasure over him hitting a fake shark!
2. Priyanka Chopra urges you to become large-hearted. By eating Rajnigandha.
The set is glossy. The lyrics are deep. The music is philosophical. The product is Rajnigandha elaichi .
Check out this ad by Rajnigandha silver pearls in which Priyanka Chopra discovers the ‘true meaning of life’.
3. Urmila Matondkar drinks 502 Pataka chai. We believe her.
What’s weirder than Shakuni mama from Mahabharata instructing you to finish your cup of tea? Urmila Matondkar stepping out of her fancy car just to have a cup of her favourite chai . Pataka chai. Gazab ka swad.

5. Salman Khan can walk on water after wearing Relaxo chappal.
