Amjad Khan is one of the meanest villains Indian Cinema has ever seen. Also, he was the first from his breed to endorse a product, that too a biscuit! After his epic-size hit Sholay, Amjad Khan went ahead to endorse Parle-G, Tata Tea and Brittania Glucose-D biscuits. Britannia Glucose D biscuits had employed Sholay's Gabbar Singh to push their product over Parle's Glucose biscuits. Here's that Ad in print. Remember?
Suresh Oberoi for Morarji Mills:
Ever heard of Dilip Kumar Selling Pickles? "The taste of your tongue is packed in this bottle"
The reason why this advertisement stands out from the others in the list is because this product was named after the actor. The ad copy was text heavy, explaining the different flavours and also the target audience they were catering to.
"I use Cinthol, do you?", Vinod Khanna and the Horse – hard to imagine more testosterone in any other advertisement, right? This ad was a huge hit in the ’80s and gave a sales boost to the brand. The ad copy read, "Vinod’s body confidence soap – Cinthol." And the picture exuded nothing but just that.
