We often find the artists in TV ads cuter. Be it the hutch dog or the Airtel 4g Girl we tend to like them more. Currently the granny and grandpa in Vodafone ads are taking the rounds as eth entire nation finds them cute and lovely.
The couple does everything from going parasailing and getting tattoos to shaking a leg in Goa, originally this duo is in their 70s and are Bharatnatyam Dancers from Chennai who have both been honoured with the Padma Bhushan award- Shanta Dhananjayan and V.P Dhananjayan. They also teach dance and run a business in Chennai together.
Shanta actually went for parasailing and evidently aced it, but for Dhananjayan things were a bit tricky since the duo were on the move right after their arrival in Goa and it was difficult for him to wear a shirt and shorts because he is used to wearing traditional veshti and jippa.
Dhananjayan has been spotted in Malayalam commercial for Nerolac Paints and Shanta did an ad for Kumaran Silks. They were honoured in 2009.
