For the first time ever, two of India’s hottest dream boats share a drink in a TV commercial, making it eminently droolworthy. After sharing screen space with the gorgeous Deepika Padukone for a cola commercial, Ttown superstar Ram Charan Tej will now swig a cola with Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in a brand new ad campaign. The three-day cola commercial was shot in Mumbai and directed by Telugu filmmaker Trivikram Srinivas. It is learnt that the teen heartthrobs shot separately first, and then came together to create some very fizzy moments in the 60 second television commercial (TVC).
“Both of them had a good time together and seemed to have a lot of common interests. Cherry (Ram Charan’s pet name) used to be a cricketing buff once and had stopped watching the game until Mahi’s captaincy revived his interest in the same,” says a close friend of the actor.
MSD on the other hand isn’t a typical movie buff and had little knowledge about Tollywood films. However, it seems that Dhoni was briefed about Charan and he enquired about regional films.
“We had a wonderful time working together. It was great interacting with MSD,” says Charan, who was reluctant to reveal more.
The light-hearted TVC has smart one-liners and that’s why Trivikram Srinivas who has a flair for comedy was roped in to direct it. “He was our best choice,” adds the young actor, who’s now keen to work with Trivikram Srinivas in a feature film, “provided everything falls in place.”(TOI)
