The latest communication further builds upon the core values of the brand and takes the whole idea of ‘I Will Do Anything for My Thunder’ to the next level of “Taste the Thunder”, while adding an element of playfulness and depicting an action-filled chase between Akshay and all that comes in between him and his Thums Up.”

Commenting on the film, Sainath Saraban, Executive Creative Director, Leo Burnett, said, “It’s an action-packed cat and mouse chase. The girl wants the guy to chase her and what better way than to grab his bottle of Thums Up for a guaranteed effect. This time around, we have upped the chemistry between the guy and girl, something we’ve never done in a Thums Up film. The girl gets her guy. The guy gets his bottle of Thums Up and the girl. Everyone’s happy.”

It may be noted that Akshay Kumar has been the Thums Up brand ambassador since 2003.
