DHAKA: As a brand that has always maintained that the difference between ‘ordinary’ & ‘extraordinary’ is the decision to move beyond fears & self-doubt; Mountain Dew is once again set to inspire the youth of Bangladesh to overcome their fears through its "Bhoyer Porei Joy" campaign this year.
Popular Actor and Mountain Dew brand ambassador Hrithik Roshan features in the new TVC that is being aired. It showcases that in the face of challenges, only by moving beyond one’s fears can we truly achieve what we are capable of.
The thrilling film opens with the action hero on the set of a shoot. Expected to perform a daredevil motorcycle stunt, fear is visible on the actor’s face as he evaluates the choice in front of him. A resolute look crosses his face as he takes a sip of Mountain Dew and takes the challenge head-on.
The film is a reiteration of Mountain Dew’s belief that in the face of any challenge there are 2 choices; either succumb to fear & turn back or overcome the fear & move ahead – it is this choice that set’s the real heroes apart from the rest.
Speaking about his experience shooting the TVC, Hrithik Roshan said, “A true hero is one who can push his own boundaries and eventually overcome fear. Movie actors are thought to be fearless and invincible. But there have been times when hearing about a stunt or an action sequence has left me questioning whether I will be able to pull it off. I have learned that while everyone faces fear in some form or the other, facing it head-on is the best way to tackle it and salute everyone who is growing through this challenge and trying to overcome it. I strongly believe in Mountain Dew’s philosophy of ‘Bhoyer Porei Joy’ and I am thrilled for am thrilled to be reunited with Siddharth Anand to bring this philosophy alive on screen.”
