Seasoned model and actor Adnan Siddiqui reached far into his archives to pull out his TVC for Pert Shampoo from the 90s. Posting the ad on Instagram, he also shared an anecdote from his time shooting the TVC, reflecting on his journey as a media personality.
Siddiqui started his career as a model in the late 80s or early 90s, and didn’t really step into an acting role till a later part in his career. While the actor did start appearing in drama serials in the 90s, it wasn’t until the 2000s that his popularity as an actor took off with his role in drama Zub-un-Nisa.
“I must be in my early 20s when I shot one of my first TV ads for Pert Shampoo,” the actor reminisced. Reflecting on the tagline of the advertisement — ‘Hum baal dho rahey hain aur khayal badal rahey hain [we’re washing hair and changing perspectives’ — in retrospect, Siddiqui noted it was quite illogical. To be honest, we are having a tough time understanding it too, what were they trying to sell?
