The commercial for the New York Lotto commercial featuring Bipasha and Vivek Oberoi was directed by Ken Nahoum and art direction by illustrator Tommy Kane. The shot, which was taken in India, was meant for overseas use only.
“Bipasha had done this ad in 1999 when she was modelling for Ford Modelling Agency in New York. It was done as an international assignment and was meant for the international market. I don"t know why such an old ad has surfaced now," The Times of India quoted Bipasha"s manager as saying.
However, Vivek's spokesperson refused to speak on the commercial, saying that they have no idea of the ad.
