Deepika May Lose Her Big Endorsement Deals Post Revelation of Drug Chats
While the actress may not lose out on good projects just because her name has surfaced in drug chats, she stands to lose big endorsements and advertisement deals. It is because corporate companies do not want someone with a stigma of drugs to promote their products. And that can be a big problem for Deepika Padukone.
A recently conducted telephonic research by the Indian Institute of Human Brands (IIHB) during September 12-13 2020 confirm the same. The research focussed on the reactions of people regarding celebrities whose names surfaced during a drug investigation. The result shows Indians have zero tolerance for drug-tainted celebrities.
Currently, Deepika Padukone endorses 20 big brands that include Vistara Airlines, Britannia, Epigamia Yogurt, MedLife, Axis Bank, Oppo, Kellogg’s, L’Oreal, and many more. In the days to come, these brands may possibly replace the actress with some other face.
