Shahrukh Khan’s latest commercial of a mango drink is tagged as disgusting by Shilpa Shetty’s husband and businessman Raj Kundra. The Rajasthan Royals owners Shilpa and Raj have been very good friends with the co-owner of KKR, Shah Rukh Khan.
The popular mango drink brand has recently gone for a makeover with a new logo and visuals. In the new TV commercial, the ad makers have used stop motion animation technique to showcase Frooti Life where miniature animated characters try to push a mango inside the new Frooti bottle and in the background Aam suckita…lickita…enjoyita is played.
Apparently, these are the words (Suck-ita, lick-ita) that has angered Raj Kundra. Perhaps he thinks that for a popular brand liked specially by kids, these words are too scandalous and carry double-meaning.
Despite being friends with SRK, Raj Kundra was so much disgusted with this new ad that he took straight to Twitter and conveyed his strong opinion against SRK’s ad in harsh words.
This Frooti ad is disgusting! Kids copying and singing suck it lick it a. @iamsrk bhai how did u approve this script? Tasteless literally!

Raj Kundra has quite clearly expressed his disgust over this ad. However what’s left to be seen is how Shahrukh responds to this.. Or Doest he at all?
