Asin, Genelia fight over Orange
Two new hot sensations of Bollywood hailed from South, Asin and Genelia D’Souza are fighting over India’s biggest orange soft drink market- South India as who will endorse the product.
Asin has been endorsing Mirinda for the last three years, while Genelia is Fanta brand ambassador. Tamilnadu alone accounts 25 percent of the total orange soft drink market in the country and the rivalry between PepsiCo and Coca Cola India over South Orange market has turned bitter.
Says a leading Chennai based brand consultant, “Asin and Genelia are big in Bollywood today after Ghajini and Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na respectively. They have already become national brand ambassadors for their respective brands. But the winner in the orange war will be decided by who wins in Tamilnadu, the biggest market for orange soft drink in the country.”
Asin’s two new television commercials with the theme 'Mirinda Kannu, Konjam Galatta Pannu' is very popular among the audience and Genelia too is excited to be associated with fanta.
Now who will endorse the Orange soft drink, Asin or Genelia is the current issue of the soft drink company.
