Santro Xing ad with Vidya

Shahrukh Khan is the brand ambassador for the car brand, Santro. King Khan has done several ads for this car brand. Now he is all set to do another ad, this time with a bollywood actress who is not very well-known. Shahrukh will be doing the ad with actress Vidya Malvade. Vidya is a model turned actress who made her debut in a Bhatt film, Inteha alongside Ashmit Patel.

Vidya Malvade was earlier an air-hostess; soon she was noticed by ad filmmaker Prahlad Kakkar who added several ads to her portfolio. She later switched on to films and is still optimistic about getting a lucky break in her film career. Vidya will be doing a fun ad with Shahrukh for Santro. The ad features Khan as her husband who is obsessed with the brand name of his car. Vidya plays Khan’s wife in the ad and they both share a few funny moments together. Earlier on Shahrukh Khan featured alongside actress Gayatri Joshi in an ad for Santro, after that Gayatri was noticed and her film career took off. Joshi starred alongside Shahrukh in her first movie itself. Unfortunately the talented actress gave up a career in films post marriage.

This is a big assignment for Vidya Malvade, as she will get more exposure due to Khan’s presence. Vidya was also seen in another film Mashooqa. As for Shahrukh, he is currently awaiting the release of his two big films, Farhan Akhtar’s remake of Don and Karan Johar’s Kabhie Alvida Na Kehna.

Let’s see if some of the SRK magic can rub off on Vidya’s film career too!
