India’s leading dairy brand Amul has paid a tribute to legendary comedian Jagdeep through its topical advertisement. Jagdeep passed away on July 8, he was 81 years old. Well-known for playing comic roles in films, Jagdeep’s demise has been a big blow to Bollywood.
Amul paid homage to the veteran actor’s film career by showcasing his different roles in its advertisement and taking a spin on his screen name and wrote, “Poore Jag ko hasaya… Jagdeep (1939-2020).” Amul shared the topical ad on Instagram with the caption, “#Amul Topical: Tribute to the great actor-comedian...”
Jagdeep started off as a child artist but soon became a constant in films in his adult days as a comic artist. He earned great acclaim for his sense of humour on screen and playing Soorma Bhopali in Sholay remains one of his most iconic roles.
