"I can't imagine Slice without Katrina Kaif."
Kiara Advani is the new face of the mango drink brand, Slice, replacing Katrina Kaif who was popularly known for its advertisements.
The announcement was made on March 3, 2023.
Kiara took to her Instagram handle and posted the video featuring herself in the new ad.
While many liked the actor’s new avatar, some also missed seeing Katrina Kaif.
The new ad opens with Kiara walking in with a bottle of the mango drink.
She wears a yellow one-shoulder ruffled top, paired with a matching skirt.
With a glass of drink, she teases a boy sitting at a table beside her and convinces him to drink.
The video also shared a close-up shot of Kiara’s lips as she sips the drink, almost bringing back the memories of Katrina Kaif’s ad for the same brand, which had gone viral earlier.
Sharing the video, Kiara wrote: “Aisi khusbhoo, aisa ras @slice_india bana hai raseele aamon se bas!
“Kya aapne Slice try kiya (Such smell and taste, it’s made of juicy mangoes. Have you tried it yet)?”
Reacting to the post, fans flooded the comment section talking about Katrina.
One fan wrote: “In my eyes, Katrina will always be the face of this brand and nobody can top that Period!”
Another said: “It’s good but wo maza nai aaya jo Katrina ko dekh ke aata hai (it’s not as same as seeing Katrina).”
One more user commented: “Woahhhh no more Katrina! End of an era.”
Another wrote: “Kiara is awesome, and we all love her but I can’t imagine Slice without Katrina Kaif, who has ruled this advertisement for years.
“Like MSD for CSK, Messi for Barca, Jetha Lal for TMKOC, similarly Kat for slice. It’s hard to imagine these things without them.”
Another Instagram user said: “I love Kiara but Katrina is next level.”
Before sharing the ad, Kiara Advani shared a picture of herself on Instagram Stories and wrote:
“Getting ready for a big announcement today.”
She is seen sitting in her makeup room wearing a white coloured bathrobe.
The picture also shows her sitting on a sofa with a plate full of mangoes.
Kiara Advani has a fork in her mouth and she winks and poses for the camera.
Kiara recently tied the knot with Sidharth Malhotra at Jaisalmer’s Suryagarh Palace on February 7, 2023.
