On screen, he played the bubbly and charismatic wedding planner who supercharged the special day of many-a-couple, like a well-shook bottle of Thums Up. Off screen, it’s now his turn to taste the thunder!
Whether it was saving a school bus with his toofani athleticism or taking charge of a NASCAR track in an epic, nail-biting race, Ranveer Singh has always brought with him an iconic, masculine spirit- much like a bolt of lightning. It is no wonder that Thums Up has always been Ranveer’s favourite beverage. Because he doesn’t settle for anything else. In his own words:
“If I go out, I ask for Thums Up and if they don’t have it, I won't take any other cola. ‘Taste the Thunder’ was the first tagline I would say as a child; it sounded so cool!”
It is this packing-a-punch passion which is so characteristic of Thums Up drinkers that Ranveer Singh epitomises- whether on camera or off. Whether he is playing the Peshwa Baji Rao or the powerful Khalji ruler Allauddin, there is a fire within which lights up the screen.
I would like to take this moment and platform to congratulate Ranveer on the journey which he is about to partake. May the road ahead be just like his favourite beverage- full of fizz and excitement; full of life!
