Celebrities say that they are always the ‘Soft Target’ by the people, but they forget that they have a strong influence over them. And advertising world make profits out of this thing. That’s the reason why Ads have celebrities, because people have an eye on what they do.
But sometimes, the celebrities do some wrong, unnecessary, unmeaningful ads, which has a negative effect on the society. They are the public figures, so they should understand their responsibilities.
There have been many Ads that caused many conflicts and uncomfort among the people. Here you can see the five most controversial ads that caused problems –
- Lux Ad 2005 –
Shahrukh Khan is a great actor, at the same time a great altisonent as well. He has done many ads of Lux, but the 2005 SRK ad was not good. Shahrukh also said this in a revelation, “Some people think it’s a girlie ad, that it questions my sexuality. But I love the idea of getting into the tub, just as I had seen all my lovely leading ladies do.”
- Ranveer Ching –
I just don’t understand why Ranveer endorsed such kind of clueless presentation. The ‘Singh’ name also got something which of ‘not nice’ type. Well, we know that Ranveer isn’t mature that much, but this was just rubbish.
- Fair & Lovely Ad –
Girls have been made to think about looking 2 times more ‘fairer’ by the Bollywood divas like Yami Gautam(presently as well), Asin etc, Think, for what reason a girl will want to become fairer? And why she will be willing to reject her natural skin tone?
- Fair & Handsome Ad –
Looking at the girls, guys also started using creams to look good(though it works). But creams like fair and handsome ads done by Shahrukh Khan are just something which doesn’t get to any point.
- Zandu Balm Ad –
Well Malaika Arora is the undisputed fitness Queen with a hot style. But her embarrassing, disrespectful moves can’t be tolerated by girls. Her Zandu Balm ad was a bad example to showcase herself.
Government has also setup high to counter such irresponsible activities by celebs. As a result of which Consumer Protection Bill, 2015, called for tough penalties which can include a fine of up to Rs 50 lakh and imprisonment of up to five years. The law, however, does not restrict stupid advertisements, but this doesn’t means that celebs should do ‘strange’ things.
