When cricket and Bollywood unite, the combination is always electric. This time it’s going to be three to tango as the actress-musician Shruti Haasan will be seen jamming with cricketers Virat Kohli, Shane Watson and Chris Gayle from the Bangalore team for a soon to release television commercial around the IPL. This is going to be a new space for her entirely as she’s never shared screen space with a cricketer before.
A true blue cricket fan, Shruti is quite excited about doing this commercial with the boys. Says an insider source, “She has been the brand ambassador for this electronics brand for some time now and her success with the brand has ensured she stays on board with them for another term. As part of the current IPL season endeavour, they’ve decided to widen their approach and throw in the sport angle with RCB – specifics Virat, Watson and Chris, all of whom are massive brands themselves. They wanted to ensure that they got names that match both the brand league and that of Shruti’s from the RCB team and that’s how Virat, Watson and Gayle happened. The shoot has recently been completed in Bangalore where Shruti channeled her true edgy rockstar musician vibe with the two cricketers.”
