Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor have endorsed many brands together over the years, right from a cola drink, anti-dandruff shampoo to travel luggage brand. However, the duo's recent TVC has been catching a lot of attention due to its cringy script as well as the netizens' reactions. Some have gone as far as to ask how-to unsee the advertisement for Vectus Industries Limited.
The duo partnered professionally for an ad of water tanks, pipes and fittings brand. While they looked casually elegant in the TVC, fans quickly notice how influenced the ad was by early 2000s content not only in the script but also in style, direction and dubbing. Some die-hard fans were happy to see the couple together on screen but could not back the actors choice to work in the ad.
The ad begins with Saif and Kareena talking about not having worked together in a long time. But Kareena seems to be wary of the idea and says "Ghar pe bhi romance, baahar bhi romance." Saif then suggests they should work in a TVC together and begins to promote the water tank and says he believes in the brand as much as he has faith in his wife Kareena.

What's shocking is that the company has released two more mini ads with the duo. In one of the ad Saif can be seen pranking Kareena to get her mad. He says, "Oh Kareena kabhi tho gussa ho, logon ko lagata hai hum khush hone ki acting karte hai." (Oh Kareena get angry sometimes, people think we act like we are happy.) Another one shows Kareena suggesting that people should buy the tank because it is as beautiful as her.
Even better than the ads are the reaction tweets, while some thought the ad has the best twist others said the duo needs to pick better projects. Take a look:
