Oops! Did we make it sound like some clandestine
project, no which was not our intention. we are
talking about their new commercial that premiered
yesterday on Deepavali on all major TV channels.
It seems to have been inspired by the Toyota
commercial featuring Aamir Khan that was based
on a similar concept the only difference being
that it was restricted to 3 avatars for Aamir.
In the Aircel commercial, Surya plays different
avatars; nine to be precise, of people one would
encounter in his daily life. He plays a gardener,
security guard, traffic constable, cool dude,
set assistants, director and himself. It was pretty
cool to see Surya after a long time on the small
screen; it is for Aircel’s new ring tone
downloads, colorfully shot by Manikandan, the
cinematographer for ‘Om Shanti Om’.
