Byju’s has over the last few days pulled ads featuring Shah Rukh Khan despite bookings after facing backlash on social media platforms like Twitter. Byju’s was one of the largest brand endorsement deals for the actor
An educational application that has Shah Rukh Khan as its brand ambassador, has briefly ended notices highlighting the Bollywood hotshot as his child Aryan Khan is under the scanner for a supposed drug test by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB).
Dependable Sources told IANS on Saturday that Byju’s has shut down all advertisements highlighting Shah Rukh Khan, obviously after social media viewers criticized the edtech organization for underwriting promotions including the entertainer, who has been the brand envoy beginning around 2017.
The analysis came in the wake of captures after an extreme emotional rave party strike on Cordelia Cruise transport during the Mumbai-Goa journey by the NCB on October 2. In a significant mishap for Shah Rukh’s child Aryan, a Mumbai court on Friday dismissed his bail supplication, and of two other people who were among the 8 captured.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R.M. Nerlikar dismissed the bail utilizations of Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha, on grounds of “viability”, maintaining the conflicts of the legitimate group of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). The advancements came a day after all the eight denounced were shipped off legal authority, and they moved to the ordinary detainment facilities from the NCB lockup.
Shah Rukh Khan has also been associated with online grocer BigBasket, now owned by the Tata Group. A spokesperson of the company said, “BigBasket will not like to validate, deny or comment anything on this.” The company declined to make any additional comments on its association with the Bollywood actor.
