New Delhi, Oct 25: A few days back actress Bipasha Basu featured in a steamy advertisement for a condom brand with her husband Karan Singh Grover. Now, Bipasha and Karan are badly trolled for doing this ad.
The sultry beauty has been sharing snippets from the commercial ad. However, some have praised her efforts for spreading awareness while others have literally shamed her for endorsing a condom ad and said that a reputed actress of her stature should not have done that advertisement.
One of the tweets read, ""Bipasha Basu, not sure you should be doing this. Wait and explore good cinema. You do have a brand value,"
Bipasha has deactivated the comments section and seems it's perhaps to keep the trolls in check. Speaking to mid-day, she declares to stand by her career choices: "The idea is to create awareness on the subject; it's the need of the hour. I am doing no wrong by endorsing condoms." Bipasha Basu has been famous for her roles in an array of erotic thrillers - Raaz and Alone, in which she co-starred with Karan.
In her interview, Bipasha added that she came on board for the commercial because: "It was going to be shot by one of the most trusted photographers and ad-filmmaker in the business, Prasad Naik. So, I knew it would be aesthetically shot."
Earlier, the hot actress accompanied one of her posts featuring the advert, with this note: "In a country that has the second largest population in the world.. we still have taboos on just the words sex and condoms..."
