Ranveer Singh Says “I’m popping my cherry”! That’s right…Singh is a virgin no more…a brand virgin, that is. After being a part of the Bollywood fraternity for nearly four years, Singh has finally decided to lose his brand virginity with none other than Durex condoms. How fitting!
As an actor and as an individual, I have a propensity for pushing the envelope, breaking the mould and taking the road less travelled. As such, I constantly endeavour to build an equity that is unique — one that truly stands out from the crowd. Over the past three-and-a-half years that I’ve been a part of the Hindi film industry, I’ve declined several tempting endorsement offers. I’ve been saving my brand virginity for the right one. And now, finally, I’m popping my cherry with the world’s leading brand in Sexual Wellbeing — Durex!” said Ranveer Singh.
Singh is the first Bollywood actor besides former adult film star Sunny Leone to endorse a condom brand. (DNA India)
