Photos: Endorsements that landed Bollywood stars in trouble

26-Nov-2016

Often labelled eccentric and zany, Ranveer Singh has had brickbats coming his way for his ad for Danish fashion brand Jack & Jones where he is seen carrying a woman on his shoulder and the punch line goes, 'Don't hold back. Take your work home.' Netizens, including 'Rang De Basanti' actor Siddharth, slammed the ad campaign, terming it sexist and offensive, and the brand responded by taking down all 12 billboards across the country and even issued an apology. The actor, too, has apologised for the commercial. This isn't the first time that the actor has been embroiled in a controversy over a commercial. In May last year, Ranveer featured in an ad for an innerwear brand where he wrestled dummy sharks. After the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) raised objections, the company decided to run the ad with a disclaimer declaring the shark was merely a rubber toy and no animal was used for the shoot.
