Remember the sari-clad girl lady boss from the recent Airtel commercial? Easily one of the most popular ads of recent times, it also saw her playing a doting wife to her husband (who happens to be working for her in office). While the advertisement raised several eyebrows for showing a woman in power at work as not so powerful at home, it was also appreciated by many. Some hated it, some loved it – but no one could ignore this Airtel commercial for sure.
Naturally, the commercial became the claim to fame for Madhurima Tuli, who features in the ad. And guess what? She has now been roped in for Neeraj Pandey’s Baby opposite none other than superstar Akshay Kumar! Now, that’s going to be a dream debut! Apparently, many actresses had their eyes on this role but Neeraj wanted a fresh face. The director had auditioned Madhurima for another film in the past and he later decided to cast her opposite Akshay in Baby.
It is being said that the film will have a beautiful love story and the multi-layered husband-wife relationship will be filled with emotions. We also hear that Madhurima will not only play the character of Akshay’s wife but also a mother to his kids in the flick. Akki plays the role of an undercover agent. Taapsee Pannu also stars in the movie.
In the past, we’ve seen Yami Gautam fetching a movie role (Shoojit Sircar’s Vicky Donor opposite Ayushmann Khurrana) after being featured in the Fair & Lovely ad series. Several other actors have found their stairway to stardom through the ad world.
