heh. Even those ads showing men in suits dancing and eating pan masala never felt 'right'

Wonder how much money theyre paying him to endorse this stuff

it's incredible that people are complaining about brosnan endorsing a pan masala brand but not the fact that major newspaper(s) in india had an ad for pan masala on the front page despite the ban on tobacco ads and ban on gutka in many states.

To be honest advertisement worked!

I had never heard about Pan Bahar and never seen those ads by Khan Father / son.

(or atleast I can not recall)

so I asked my smoker friends if they change cigarette brands going by ads. They said they usually try different brands and stick with what they find most appealing. And they try to change brands only when their preffered cigarette brands get costlier.

I assume its the same for pan masala

Yup. When I was smoking, I think I largely stayed on three or four brands during the six seven year period. Ads don't matter. Navy Cut Marlboro Lucky Classic Mild. Lucky was probably my favorite of the lot but it just disappeared from the market.

Tobacco & Gutka ads are banned. Pan Masala acts as surrogate advertising I presume. Just like "Music CDs", Apple Juice & Mineral Water ads do for alcohol.

google tells me that pan masala is just another less crude name for gutka? or is it completely tobacco free? i really have no idea. i guess gutka might be pan masala + tobacco. gutka is supposedly banned in haryana. but i do see a lot of pan masala on sale on ciggie shops.
