Bollywood ‘rockstar’ Ranbir Kapoor will be seen giving batting tips to cricketer Virender Sehwag in a new TV commercial, actually taught him to dance during the shooting of the ad.
Ranbir, who has showcased his dancing prowess in movies like “Saawariya”, “Bachna Ae Haseeno” and “Anjaana Anjaani”, has teamed up with the cricketer for Pepsi’s cricket World Cup special commercial.
“Thoda grace se hila… Kamar bhi hila… shakal pe expression la… Upar se aane ka, niche dabane ka, piche uthane ka, haan!” will be the background song for the ad.
A source from the sets revealed that Sehwag was initially shy, but being a true sportsman, quickly got into the groove and started following Ranbir’s instructions on the dance floor.
The actor sports a loud and carefree look in the ad, which has been designed by Aki Narula who gave him a pair of ripped jeans and a colourful bold checked shirt to wear over a white fitted tee.
To complete the edgy and chilled out look, Narula decided to give Ranbir white wayfarers, a chic hat and a leather cuff.
For the first Ranbir wears a ponytail, styled by Hakim Aalim.
The new commercial will go on air Saturday.
