Will this commercial bring disunity in the Indian cricket team?


Indian cricketer/bowler  Harbhajan Singh, has a bowled a doosra, off-field, by suing Vijay Mallyas United Breweries for an amount of 1 lakh rupees. The issue?
The latest television commercial of UB groups McDowell’s No.1 Soda makes a  spoof of its rival brand Pernod Ricard’s Royal Stag – Make it large, the brand ambassador of which is Harhajan Singh.  The commercial shows a Bhajji lookalike in his father factory, asking if he had made it large, only to be slapped by his father. The interesting part is that the commercial features MS Dhoni.

The suing notice states that the McDowell’s commercial makes a mockery of Harbhajan, his family and the Sikh community and can bring disunity and friction in the Indian cricket team.
