Ranbir Kapoor in Axe "Click" Commercial by Bang Bang Films and BBH Singapore PR Newswire MUMBAI, June 4, 2013 MUMBAI, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bang Bang Films Directors Nic& Sune Direct Ranbir in Axe's New Commercial Axe's new commercial starring leading Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor reinforces the brand's "Irresistible" proposition and key message. Creative Agency, BBH Singapore, Production Company, Bang Bang Films and Directors, Nic& Sune came together to create this commercial. Axe commercials are among the most searched/watched commercials; not only are they visually stunning but they manage to combine glamour and humour and get the message across effectively.

BBH had a wonderful experience shooting another great spot for Unilever's Axe brand in Bombay. Our star Ranbir Kapoor was truly a pleasure to work with and Bang Bang Films helped hold it all together. Really fun, wouldn't have changed a thing." Incidentally, Nic & Sune and Bang Bang have worked with Ranbir together a couple of years ago in Pepsi's "Youngistaan ka Wow", commercial, shot in Los Angeles. Roopak Saluja, Founder & Managing Director, Bang Bang Films, "Having delivered a super-hit Ranbir spot with Nic & Sune in the past, they were an obvious choice for Axe. Not too long ago, Axe was a brand using global creative on Indian TV. To have the opportunity to produce an Indian spot with the same aspirational production values is a real pleasure for us at Bang Bang." Sune Maroni comments on what it was like to shoot a commercial for Axe, an iconic brand, "Being asked to shoot an Axe commercial is an honour for any commercials director. Their spots offer cheeky humour combined with sophisticated visuals and have managed to capture a space in the collective consciousness of young people all across the world. We've been lucky enough to shoot with Ranbir Kapoor before, and it is always a pleasure to work with such talent, but for this film we had more time to have fun. The script allowed for some improvisation on his part and he never fell short when challenged to add the RK-touch. We don't think it was too difficult for Ranbir to imagine himself in a situation where he is being flirted with by a great number of drop-dead-gorgeous women. His life is pretty much like that of Vince in the celebrated TV-series "Entourage". Maybe that could be his next project, an adaption of "Entourage" for India. We would love to direct that."
