Sex sells! This has been the “mantra” for many Bollywood movies. It has always played a very important role in the Indian films. The hypocrisy is that most of the celebrities shield away from endorsing the condom brands in the advertisement.
In a country like India where sex education is a joke and youngsters are getting their info from pornographic movies, endorsement of safe sex is a necessity. These 5 Bollywood celebrities broke the taboo to convey the much-needed message, “safe sex is the best sex.”
1. Ranveer Singh
Ranveer Singh is such a celebrity who connects really well with the younger audiences. Who can be a better ambassador than him! The best part is that he is not only promoting safe sex but also creating awareness.
2. Sunny Leone
Every act of this Bollywood actress is scrutinized with prejudice because of her background as an adult film actress. However, rising beyond the hurdles, she emerged as one of the first few from Bollywood who showed the courage to endorse a condom brand.
3. Pooja Bedi
She is probably the first heroine to take the bold step and be seen in a condom ad. She did this ad along with former model Mark Robinson.
4. Bipasha Basu and Karan Singh Grover
This couple perfectly showcased their chemistry through a steamy ad. When asked about her role, Bipasha said:
“In a country that has the second largest population in the world… we still have taboos on just the words sex and condoms… but not the actual act. Let’s talk more… read more and learn more about all the things that can be avoided just by the use of a simple precaution. With condoms you can have planned pregnancies and protected sex… which can curb HIV and STD cases. As a couple we believe in this that’s why we have thoughtfully endorsed it. ”
5. Rakhi Sawant
The ad might not look very thoughtful and somewhat borders on the aspect of cheapness but there is no denying the fact that she has joined others to promote safe sex.
