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.

Ara Hampartsoumian from BBH Singapore, Axe's creative agency remarks, "It's
never an easy task when an advertising agency is asked to not only replicate
but actually improve on what was previously a globally successful ad, but the
four key elements of client, agency, production and celebrity all aligned on
this one and we delivered. 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."
