SunstarTV Bureau: #BoycottBingo started trending on Twitter after a commercial ad by ITC Foods’ Bingo featuring actor Ranveer Singh went live.
The ad, where Ranveer is seen talking in scientific terms like, algorithms, paradoxical photons, and aliens, after being repeatedly asked about his future plans.
The fans of the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput took offence, as SSR was keen in astronomic field and connected this ad to a trifling theory that the ad is disrespectful and was making fun of Sushant.
In its official response, an ITC Foods spokesperson said, “A completely false and mischievous message is being circulated alleging that an advertisement of Bingo! is making fun of a late Bollywood celebrity. Such kind of false messages are knowingly spreading this news. We request you to not fall prey to such mischievous posts. The recent Bingo! Advertisement was shot more than a year ago in October 2019. It is being aired this year because of delay in the launch of Bingo! Mad Angles Cheese Nachos and Bingo! Mad Angles Pizza due to the Covid-19 pandemic.”
