With Cadbury Dairy Milk rehashing one of its popular 90s adverts by swapping gender roles, netizens have been digging out some vintage commercials from the past, that were quite popular back then. And the latest one to grab everyone’s attention is Pepsi’s dramatic advert featuring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Mahima Chaudhry and Aamir Khan.
While millennials and Gen Z seem to be quite surprised by the younger versions of the popular Bollywood actors, the 90s kids surely had a moment of nostalgia. From sharing their thoughts about the advert to comparing it with Hollywood, netizens surely had a field day on the microblogging site. Some Twitter users even compared Aamir with veteran Jackie Chan, as the Indian actor managed to pull off some remarkable stunts in the 90s commercial.

On the professional front, Aamir recently wrapped the shooting schedule of his upcoming project, Laal Singh Chaddha which also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan in a pivotal role. Meanwhile, on the other hand, Aishwarya has been busy with the filming of Ponniyin Selvan, which marks her fourth collaboration with ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam. While Mahima, who has been away from the limelight for quite some time now, was recently awarded an honorary doctorate for her contribution to the world of entertainment.
