People might have flooded social media with jokes about James Bond star Pierce Brosnan’s advertisment for an Indian pan masala brand, but Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone would rather talk about how good he looks in the video.
Brosnan once again donned the role of the 007 agent, though this time to endorse pan masala.
In the one-minute video, Brosnan, 63, is seen using the can of pan masala as a weapon to fend off enemies. In the end he says, “Class never goes out of style”.
When asked about it, Deepika told a TV channel, “He still looks as good. I think it’s fantastic and amazing that we get to work with such amazing talent. Whether it’s us going here or they coming here.”
The 30-year-old actress, who is set to make her Hollywood debut next year with “xXx: Return of Xander Cage”, mentioned her “Piku” co-star Irrfan Khan, praising his work in international cinema.
“Irrfan (Khan) is doing such amazing work with ‘Inferno’, so, I think it’s nice to see that with the kind the films that are being made or the way we are casting these roles shows we are moving beyond what we’ve been used to seeing for so many years.
“Creativity should be beyond the colour of your skin. I think the only reason why you should be cast in a film is because of the uniqueness you bring to the role,” she said.
