In the illustrated ad, the iconic Amul girl and Khurrana's character stand next to each other with buttered toasts in their hands.
Amul shared the add with the caption, "Farq laayenge, makhan khaayenge", a play on the dialogue "Farq bahut karliya, ab farq layenge" (We have created enough differences, now we will bring a difference) from the film.
