Commenting on the new variants, Vidur Vyas, marketing director - foods, PepsiCo India, said, "At PepsiCo, it is our constant endeavour to innovate and diversify our portfolio to offer both enjoyable and healthier offerings to our consumers.”

On Balan's appointment, Vyas said, “An accomplished actress, a woman of substance and an affable personality, Vidya is a great match to highlight the brand’s positioning of a snack jo tasty hai, accha hai. We look forward to the partnership and are confident that it will be mutually rewarding."
