The fragrance of Lux that stands for love and sensuality brings out the lover in me,' Shah Rukh said at the shoot. The commercial is shot and directed by French director Juan Delcan. It's Sufi-inspired music score has been composed by acclaimed poet and lyricist Gulzar, and sung by Sonu Nigam.
Katrina's look in the ad is styled by fashion designer Rocky S. When I think of Lux, I think of fun and spontaneity. Lux embodies a type of a woman rather than just soap and of course the fragrance that embodies sensuality,' said the actress.
