In the picture, the actor was seen wearing a neon yellow sports bra paired with cropped leggings flaunting her toned abs. After criticizing Puma for using a photo without her permission, Anushka Sharma was afterward mocked by fans for a promotional gimmick.
On Monday, Anushka Sharma took a dig at the sportswear brand Puma for using her picture without permission. She posted an Instagram story slamming the brand asking to take it down saying she is not their brand ambassador.
On June 6th, 2020, Anushka Sharma posted a photo wearing Puma’s sportswear with the caption, “I told you I knew all the sunny places.” The actor was enraged after the brand used her same Instagram photo with a caption, “Hey #PropahLady, close the year in style with the PUMA End Of Season Sale!”. Anushka reposted it to her Instagram story bashing angrily.
The brand responded and the actor shared a video speaking about Puma’s proposal. The actor was seen on the makeup chair murmuring, “Wait, will I have to wear a sports bra all day? it is like being stuck at the same job as Virat”. The actor continued saying that now they will say the logo should be visible everywhere.
In a new picture, Anushka Sharma appeared posing in athleisure wearing red shorts, a black sports bra topped with a black and white jacket. She wrote, “Well, that’s just how it’s done.”
Virat Kohli, her husband, and cricketer reacted to her photo with a slew of heart emojis. “Best marketing tactic ever,” one of the admirers said. Creative geniuses”. Some mocked her for using cheap marketing tactics, while others chastised Puma for not using real women athletes in their athleisure attire.
