Aryan Khan Arrest: BYJU's temporarily takes down ads featuring Shah Rukh Khan
Mumbai : A week after Aryan Khan was arrested in drug-related case, Bengaluru based Edtech startup Byju's has temporarily taken down ads featuring Shah Rukh Khan. The move comes after people criticized the company.
A lot of users on social media sites, especially Twitter, have called out Byju's for having Shah Rukh Khan as their ambassador, leading to the ads being pulled even after advance bookings have been done.
Shah Rukh Khan has been the brand ambassador for the company since 2017.
According to a report in Economic Times, the actor gets around 3-4 crores from the deal per year. And recently, they had started shooting a new ad series.
“For Byju’s, they had planned for IPL ads too and now there is a discomfort around that as the tournament moves to its next stage. It’s not clear if they will be able to pull out of all IPL promotions,” another source told Economic Times.
On the other hand, Aryan Khan, along with Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant, was denied bail yesterday in the cruise ship drugs case, since their application was not maintainable.
