Sunny Leone’s anti-smoking ad has been trending at the top of youtube for almost a week now since its launch last Tuesday. It has garnered 4 million views within a week, an unprecedented feat for any digital video in the past year. At a time when new things start trending each day this quirky ad has managed to remain in the top 2 for an entire week.
The reason? Well, there are many. First, it has the most quirkiest combination possible in Bollywood – the sexy Sunny Leone with the ever-so-sanskari Babuji, Alok Nath, and ace comedian Deepak Dobriyal. Second, it gives a strong message but in a fun manner that the viewers enjoy and love to share with their friends. And third, it is for a cause that affects a large section of the society, especially the youth – Smoking.
The Ad featured on channel Aur Dikhao has the sensuous Sunny Leone playing a Haryanvi bride and she looks gorgeous. Bollywood’s rising star comedian Deepak Dobriyal plays a dying man craving for his last wish, and he leaves the viewers in splits with his expressions. The legendary Alok Nath is in his best elements and plays a key character causing a twist in the plot.
We haven’t seen a better and more thoughtful ad in recent times. Kudos to the stellar cast, the creative team & the producers – Aneel and Manish Muraka for taking up such a cause for the country and we wish the Ad reaches billions of people soon.
