Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt, Bollywood’s most-loved younger couple, recently teamed up for an advertisement for the Adar Poonawalla Clean City Initiative. In the commercial that was released a few weeks back, they were seen playing the characters of Romeo and Juliet and spread the message of Cleanliness.
Now, Varun and Alia have come together once again for yet another commercial for the same cause. However, this time they will be seen playing astronauts to urge citizens to keep Mumbai clean. According to Mid-Day, the second ad sees the two descending on the moon from a spaceship. When Dhawan unwraps a chocolate bar and throws the wrapper around, an irked Bhatt teaches him a lesson by leaving him behind to fend for himself.
Punit Malhotra who has directed this commercial produced by Dharma 2.0, said: “They (Varun and Alia) are youth icons. When they back such powerful concepts, it drives the point home, especially among the youngsters. The importance of a greener and cleaner environment needs to be reinforced. We addressed that in the first ad. The second one will release soon.”
