Akshay Kumar blasted an online publication for a misleading article about an advert for pan masala brand, Vimal.
For the unversed, Kumar had stepped down as brand ambassador of Vimal last year due to criticism from his fans. Today, he was accused of being a hypocrite as a new advert appeared. Kumar was forced to clarify his stance and said that it was an old recorded advert and the brand had legal allowance to run the commercial until end of November.
Kumar hit back at a publication, which carried the headline “Akshay Kumar returns as the ambassador of Vimal Pan Masala”. Responding to this, Kumar said, “‘Returns’ as ambassador? Here’s some fact check for you Bollywood Hungama, if by chance you are interested in things other than fake news. These ads were shot on 13th October, 2021. I have not had anything to do with the brand ever since I publicly announced the discontinuation of the endorsement. They can legally run the already shot ads till the end of next month. Chill and do some real news.”
