Being a public figure surely has its own pros and cons. While they embrace a lot of fame and love from their admirers, they must remain cautious about the things they opt for. Be it the way they carry an ensemble or the way they behave, or the decisions they make in their personal and professional lives alike. Well, their action also invites unhealthy criticism. And the latest victim of that unhealthy criticism is none other than the Zero star Anushka Sharma. The actress endorsed a product by popular pan masala brand, Rajnigandha.
It appears to be the case that netizens couldn’t digest that Anushka Sharma has opted to endorse a paan masala brand like Rajnigandha. They attacked her on the social media and trolled the Sui Dhaaga actress.
This is the advertisement for which the diva was targetted:
It is a fact that paan masala indeed has tobacco which is hazardous for health. However, the one which Anushka has endorsed is just ‘silver-coated-elaichi’ (cardamom). It is tobacco free as well.
People didn’t know about this and commented regardless. Have a read:
@AnushkaSharma this my first tweet 4 u. Admired you coz of ur character & movies. Seeing u in an ad of rajnigandha pearls left me in shock. Could not match ur character with the ad.

Anushka sharma’s ad on Rajnigandha ‘pearl’ is absolutely horrendous. No clue as to what’s happening in that ad.

Just saw @AnushkaSharma endorsing Rajnigandha silver pearls supari. Husband (@imVkohli ) says he will not sell products that are harmful, wife sells supari and schools ppl on civic issues with a camera crew. Salute! https://t.co/MWLEw9iMXY

लोग जहर का प्रचार करके भी शोहरत बटोर रहे है और हमे गुनगार कहते है लोग बिना कुछ किए ही

बस यही प्रचार करना बचा था..@imVkohli से कुछ सीख लीजिये वो कोई ऐसे ब्रांड का प्रचार नही करते जो सेहत के लिए नुकसानदेह हो,इसके पीछे तो बड़े पैमाने पर लिखा रहता है कि *स्वास्थ्य के लिए हानिकारक* ।
हद हो गया है , लीग पॉज के लिए कुछ भी कर सकते है।।

@AnushkaSharma did not expect a responsible person like you to advertise a gutkha manufacturing company product.rajnigandha makes products which leads to cancer and other diseases.Even your husband is legally prohibited from endorsing such products…why are you doing it?

@AnushkaSharma If Rajnigandha truly believed that goodness can make the world a better place, they should stop manufacture of gutkha which disfigures & kills it’s users. They are using you to kill more people. pic.twitter.com/wL6joGV8HN

People must check before commenting, as it is just ‘silver-coated-elaichi’ (cardamom). Anushka Sharma was lambasted unnecessarily!
