Saif Ali Khan returns for Lay's, this time its for the gourmet range

Watch the film conceptualised by Leo Burnett here

Lay’s Gourmet, has unveiled a campaign to magnify the taste and finesse of Lay’s Gourmet chips. Conceptualised by Leo Burnett, the film features Saif Ali Khan, who has been re-appointed as brand ambassador.
The film begins with Khan walking through a luxuriously decorated corridor to meet journalists named Aditi and Anjali, who are waiting to interview him. The duo discussed the possibility of the house having other grand decor and architecture, which makes Anjali want to learn more about Khan’s taste. Just at that moment, he surprises them by placing packs of Lay’s Gourmet on the table. When Anjali addresses what’s on the table as chips, Aditi corrects her saying they’re not chips, but Lay’s Gourmet.”
Shailja Joshi, director - marketing, potato chips category, PepsiCo India, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Saif once again as a member of the Lay’s family, this time as the face of our range of slow-cooked premium kettle chips, Lay’s Gourmet. His impeccable taste and refined choices in life make him the perfect partner to showcase the crafted experience of Lay’s Gourmet. Our new TV commercial seamlessly establishes this correlation as it gives a sneak peek into what actually defines Saif as the connoisseur of finer things. We’re confident that our fans will embrace him as the face of Lay’s Gourmet, just like they’ve been savouring the well-deserved
experience and rich taste of these delightful chips.”
Rajdeepak Das, CEO and chief creative officer, South Asia, Leo Burnett, said, “When we think of royalty, we often associate it with opulence and grandeur. However, true royalty is characterised by a focus on quality and perfection, which is precisely what makes Lay’s Gourmet stand out. Crafted from fine ingredients, each chip is a testament to the pursuit of the best flavour and experience. And who better than the Nawab of Pataudi himself, Saif Ali Khan, who embodies the spirit of quality and sophistication, to bring alive the experience of Lays Gourmet.” 
The TVC will be rolled out across media.
