If someone can create a trend despite IPL pressure and that too for an advertisement, you can imagine the fan-following, a person has, and he’s none other than ‘Wall’ of Indian Cricket, Rahul Dravid. A few netizens are demanding Oscar Award for Rahul Dravid, and we can’t agree more.
If you don’t know, it was Virat Kohli who first shared the ad, and within seconds, it went viral on the Internet. On the other hand, Tanmay Bhat of AIB fame tweeted, “who wants a behind-the-scenes vlog of this?”. He wrote this ad along with Devaiah Bopanna, Puneeth Chadha, Nupur Pai, and Vishal Dayama; directed by Early Man film.

Calling all angry gundas of Indiranagar to get out of traffic Jammys, sit Toit at home, and order in some Chakum Chukum. You chill Bob's, we'll be your Sarathi and come Humming to your Corner House with a Shalimar delivery. Stepping out should always be Plan B.
