There’s no denying it; we’re, as a nation, obsessed with India. We queue up in cinemas to watch their films, a considerable TV target audience is addicted to their sob-fest saas-bahu soaps and we dance to their songs at marriages. A ‘Shiela’ or a ‘Fevicol’? Heck, yeah.But when an Indian celebrity turns up on a local billboard, it instantly becomes a supply of contention. Why is there an Indian face promoting a product in the Pakistani market, critics complain.
Smartly, why not? Although our cricket heroes, Indian celebrities are extremely well known, well-cherished faces in Pakistan – any one who’s been not able to get a cinema price ticket for the latest ‘area-complete’ Shahrukh Khan-starrer can attest to this. In reality, it’s the pulling power of Bollywood motion pictures that has resulted within the re-enlargement of cinemas and the so much-touted revival of Pakistani films.Speaking pragmatically, Bollywood’s celebrity-power and glamour is frequently manifold in comparison to the gloss of our local icons. A living proof is cell brand Q-Mobile’s advert campaigns that have featured a battalion of native stars – Atif Aslam, Humayun Saeed, Ayesha Khan, Ali Zafar, Danish Taimoor and Fawad Khan to name a few.
The instant, then again, we had been all ready to pronounce ‘Noir’ was when Bollywood siren Kareena Kapoor sauntered into a TV ad, maintaining the cellphone in her hand. The up-and-coming Indian hero Arjun Kapoor, followed quickly, jiving to but some other ‘Noir’ advert campaign and temporarily making the fledgling logo upward thrust in popularity.
