Yesterday it was Yebhi.com, today its EkSMS. You can read that post here. Unethical means of running ads still continues on Facebook. As I was browsing I came across this bizzarre ad which had a picture of Nana Patekar. Now, I am a huge huge fan of Nana Patekar. I have great amount of respect for him as he is one of the most geniune actors Indian cinema is ever produced.
The headline of this ad is Ek SMS drink specials. Now why is EK SMS associating Nana Patekar with drink specials?? What message are they trying to send? Do they think Nana Patekar is an Alcoholic? Is Nana endorsing them? This is quite similar to the Yebhi episode. I don’t understand why people are using unfair means to grab attention!
EK SMS doesnot have a Facebook page this ad redirects to their website, though they are present on Twitter. There are fairer and ethical means of grabbing attention. Anyone using images of celebrities for business purposes without their consent should be penalized. This is totally unethical. As a Nana Patekar fan it really hurts me! 😦
