The actors, who are among the A-listers of Bollywood, have worked together in Bhansali’s films like
Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela, Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani. The two are considered to be one of the best on-screen as well as off-screen couples.
However, the couple have long been pitted on the opposite sides of endorsing brands.
Here is a list of brands that the two endorse or have endorsed that compete aggressively against each other in the market: MakeMyTrip vs Goibibo
While both have been engaged in endorsing online travel portals, one is with MakeMyTrip and the other is with Goibibo. Ranveer Singh has been associated with MMT for two years now since he was signed along with Alia Bhatt in 2016. Both have done a number of ads for the portals with the videos being among the most watched ones. Deepika, on the other hand, was signed by Goibibo in 2017 and ever since, she has featured in several ads. Her recent ad for the portal featuring along with Vicky Kaushal won hearts across social media, leaving many hopeful of seeing them together in a flick.
Oppo vs Vivo
In 2017, Deepika was signed by Selfie Expert Oppo as the brand ambassador. “It’s amazing to see the way Oppo has identified with Indian youth and this new trend of clicking selfies. To be honest, wherever I go, I find people taking selfies,” the actress was quoted by Vogue. The actress recently did a commercial for the mobile brand with Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra. Whereas, Ranveer Singh was associated with Vivo from April 2016 to March 2018, after which he was replaced by actor Aamir Khan.
Kotak Mahindra Bank vs Axis Bank
Two of India's largest private lenders — Kotak Mahindra Bank and Axis Bank — have signed the to-be husband-wife as their brand ambassadors. Ranveer was appointed as the brand ambassador of Kotak Mahindra Bank this year, while Deepika has been the brand ambassador of Axis Bank since 2014.
Adidas Originals vs Nike
Ranveer Singh signed Adidas Originals in 2015 and in the same year, his lady love Deepika Padukone was endorsing Nike.
"I am totally stoked to represent a brand that I grew up loving and has been a big part of my life. I still own the first pair of superstar sneakers that I bought during my college days and have only gone on to collect more," Singh had said during the announcement.
While Adidas Originals is also known for its fashion range, Nike, as a brand, only caters to the sports enthusiasts. Nike had reportedly chosen Deepika after taking a thorough survey. She was shortlisted mainly because she herself is a professional badminton player.
L’Oreal vs Head & Shoulders
Deepika, in 2017, was announced as the global ambassador of beauty brand LOréal Paris, joining the likes of Jane Fonda, Blake Lively, Julianne Moore, Susan Sarandon and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. “I’ve always believed that feeling beautiful begins with feeling confident about yourself and L’Oréal Paris with its powerful message ‘Because we’re worth it’, has always encouraged women to do that,” Deepika said in a statement. Whereas, Ranveer became the face of anti-dandruff hair-care brand Head & Shoulders in 2016. “I always make it a point to be well groomed not just from head to toe but from hair to toe! It’s time to change our ‘chalta hain attitude’ towards grooming and realize that well groomed means no dandruff!,” he believes.
Flipkart vs Club Factory
Deepika has been closely associated with Flipkart - be it by launching ‘All About You’ with Flipkart's Myntra or by recently endorsing the e-tailer's biggest sale of year 'Big Billion Days'.Ranveer, however, has been recently promoting the China-headquartered e-tailer Club Factory. Although Club Factory is largely known for its fashion division, it also sells books, home and electronic items - making it like any other prominent e-tailer.
