In Bollywood, endorsements are a big deal, and no celebrity will turn down the chance to sell a product that bears their name and face. Endorsements are a two-way street when it comes to how they work. On one hand, it promotes the business and the product and on the other hand, it also promotes celebrities and their face values. Today, celebrity endorsements account for a considerable portion of their earnings.

Previously, Ajay Devgn was the face of Pan Masala advertising. But recently, celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, and Ranveer Singh have also joined the fray.
