She has been hired as the brand ambassador for the brand. Kareena is to endorse the brand and the shooting for the advertisement will be filmed in Thailand. The CEO and Chairman of the company and Zeeshan Akhtar says that Kareena, 33, will add new energy to the brand and help it make its position more solid in the market. He goes on mentioning that Kareena Kapoor’s big stardom, her back to back hits and her leading position in the industry made the company hire her as its brand ambassador.
The CEO further reveals that being the leading mobile phone company in Pakistan, we could not settle any less than Kareena for our brand. We wanted the top notch actress to endorse our top brand and thus we hired the Bollywood’s leading actress. He adds that since the storyboard demands that the ad should be shot in Thailand, we zeroed in the same location. The ad will soon be shot. Well, it’s great news that Kareena Kapoor becomes brand ambassador of QMobile, as it is the leading company of Pakistan and she is the leading actress of Bollywood and it is fittingly apt to her status. Previously QMobile took Aditya Roy Kapoor to endorse the brand also.
Kareena Kapoor is always seen in top notch brands in India and she has also done the endorsement for Pakistani clothing brand, ‘Firdous Collections’ and Head & Shoulders Shampoo ad with hubby Saif Ali Khan. For Firdous Collections, she was reportedly paid huge amount and for QMobile, she has been given more than that. The CEO did not reveal the amount saying it’s a secret and we take it as an investment. Many prominent Bollywood personalities and even many others too from Indian entertainment industry are seen in Pakistani ads endorsing the brands. This is because Indian celebrities are loved in Pakistan. Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Karishma Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Akshay Kumar and many others have endorsed many Pakistani brands so far. Recently Juhi Chawala endorsed cooking oil ‘Gaaen Banaspati’. The ad is running on all channels.
