Bollywood 'king' Shahrukh Khan will now endorse Frooti, made from the king of fruits - mango. He has shot a TV commercial for the brand with children, and says he is "delighted" with the association.

"I'm delighted to be the face of Frooti, the mango drink that the entire nation has always been fond of. There's hardly any brand that conjures up so much joy, so much desire and so much magic around it like Frooti does. I feel really good about this association and I hope you enjoy watching the ad as much as I enjoyed being a part of it," Shahrukh said in a statement.

Frooti, a Parle Agro sub-brand, is 27 years old. Its new TV commercial is an answer to brands which are "busy wooing viewers with seductive commercials", read the statement.

In the ad, Shahrukh takes the audiences back to the simple joys of enjoying the pure, fresh and juicy taste of mangoes on a hot summer's day.

During the ad shoot, which is said to have been done in flat three hours, King Khan not only sang to Frooti tunes, but also enjoyed himself with the children on the set.

SRK's association with the brand is already trending on Twitter with the tag - SRKLovesFrooti.

The actor used to earlier endorse beverage brand Pepsi, and joined forces with Sprite for his Indian Premier League team Kolkata Knight Riders later. IANS
