Abhishek Bachchan has been sacked by the electronics giant LG as the brand ambassador after the actor wanted his wife Aishwarya Bachchan to be a part of the ad campaign. LG refused his offer and has decided not to renew his contract as they are not happy with the star laying down terms. Abhishek also endorses Idea Cellular and Motorola.
The couple have become a favourite among advertisers ever since their marriage last year. The stars however have failed to make any major deal together due to their exorbitant price they charge for coming together in ads. LG is now planning to sign Akshay Kumar or Shahid Kapoor for the ad.
