Storia Foods and Beverages Controversial Ad
It all started after a beverages brand Storia Foods launched a commercial to market its chocolate shake. The Mumbai Congress has alleged that the advertisement mocked Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi and party President Sonia Gandhi, asserting that such acts would not be tolerated.
The advertisement features famous comedian Sanket Bhosale using punchlines purportedly used by Rahul Gandhi during his election rally speeches and interviews. However, some statements in the advertisement were twisted and altered for entertainment purpose.
