Last week Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s first on-screen appearance with her father Amitabh Bachchan in a jewellery brand’s commercial made everyone emotional but the ad but the ad featuring the father daughter duo received negative feedback from the bank union who thinks the commercial is ‘creating distrust in the banking system’. Not just that, the All India Bank Officers’ federation threatened to sue the brand, as a result the advertisers has now pulled off the ad.
The executive director of the jewellery company issued a statement saying, “We sincerely regret the inadvertent hurt caused and withdraw the advertisement from all media with immediate effect. We understand that the advertisement has hurt sentiments of some people including members of our esteemed banking community. Any such hurtful interpretation being drawn is unintended. We state that the creative advertisement was a work of fiction and not a reflection of banking employees at large. Along with crores of Indians, we acknowledge the valuable contribution of the banking community to our country.”
