A recent television advertisement featuring Akshay Kumar, Shah Rukh Khan, and Ajay Devgn, showcased during the Cricket World Cup, has become a topic of attention on social media. Now, Akshay has responded to the ongoing trolling on social media.
Akshay Kumar took to X (Twitter) to clarify the situation. He tweeted, “‘Returns’ as ambassador? 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.”
In April 2022, Akshay Kumar made a public declaration on X (formerly Twitter), stating, “I am sorry. I would like to apologize to you, all my fans and well-wishers. Your reaction over the past few days has deeply affected me. While I have not and will not endorse tobacco, I respect the outpouring of your feelings in light of my association with Vimal Elaichi.”
“With all humility, I step back. I have decided to contribute the entire endorsement fee towards a worthy cause. The brand might continue airing the ads till the legal duration of the contract that is binding upon me, but I promise to be extremely mindful in making my future choices,” he wrote.
Coming to the professional front, Akshay Kumar is currently seen in Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue, which was released on October 6.
