Bollywood icon Akshay Kumar has proved his versatility outside of the big screen having appeared in two very distinct ad campaigns.
With over 20 brand endorsements under his belt, Kumar is recognised for engaging audiences with an exciting repertoire of characters for television campaigns and films alike.
His latest campaigns for Policybazaar and snacks brand, Kurkure is testament to his adaptability. For Policybazaarour, Kumar transforms into a superhero avatar, Mr Policybazaar, where he is seen helping a distressed woman at a hospital sort out her health insurance.
Sharing the video on social media, Kumar wrote, “There’s a new Superhero in town. Presenting Insurance ka Superhero, Mr. Policybazaar to help make your Health Insurance claims easy.”
The ad proves how Kumar continues to influence and engage with the public seamlessly — with his inventive and engaging roles to promote brands and causes he endorses.
Kumar also teamed up with South Indian superstar Samantha Prabhu for Kurkure’s latest campaign with clear comedic appeal.
In the ad, the actor can be seen as a thief sneaking into Samantha’s house at night but gets distracted from the mission when he spots a snack in the kitchen, and starts munching it. As he is about to sneak out, he gets caught red-handed by Samantha and her family, who snatches the packet, before informing him lovingly they had arranged a vehicle for him – only to realise a police siren in earshot.
Sharing the ad on social media, Kumar wrote, “Life mein ki pehli baar chori try, aur apna ho gaya bheja fry. Samantha ke ghar mein nahi tha taala, #Kurkure khaate khaate #AbLagaMasala”.
