  • Sucking it, licking it: Raj Kundra scolds SRK for 'disgusting' ad on Twitter - Firstpost

    New Frooti Life's new ad seems to assume that Toy Story-like characters prancing around a giant mango will bowl kids over and make them harangue their parents to buy them the mango drink . It has a mango playing Gulliver to tiny GI Joe like humans, one slightly resembling Shah Rukh Khan. The humans try to push the mango, tie it to a car, make an elephant pull it, hit it, but the mango is immovable and unfazed -- sort of like Baba Ramdev. This is when GI Joe SRK comes to the rescue and chants the ill-tempered mango world's version of 'Khulja Sim Sim', as in the immortal words: "Aam suck it'a, lick it'a".
