“World’s Greatest Paani Ki Tanki Ad.”
Bollywood power couple Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan are going viral online after featuring in an advertisement together. However, the reason behind it going viral is for a rather strange.
The advertisement featuring the couple is for a company that manufactures plastic pipes and water storage tanks.
In the thirty-second ad, Kareena and Saif are dressed in formal attire and enjoying a hearty meal.
Saif says: “Kareena, it’s been a while since we worked together” to which Kareena replies, “Romance at home, romance at work.”
“I know, will it be too much?” questions Saif. He further adds: “I have an idea, let’s do an ad together.”
Kareena goes on to ask, “Which one?” to which Saif replies, “Vectus! It’s a very good brand.”
“So much faith?” asks Kareena. Saif ends the advertisement by stating, “As much as I trust you!”
