Snigdha AkolkarThis ad has been viewed almost 7.5 lakh times on YouTube (and has also been flagged an inappropriate for minors by some users, therefore you need to log in to view it there).

But then, at Cutting the Chai – there aren’t any such restrictions. You get to watch ads (and a lot of other things too) and get access to related goodies.

Now back to the ad. It’s for Wildstone deodorant. The female model in the ad is Pune girl Snigdha Akolkar. She has also appeared in TV serials and a (saree-clad) item number.

Presently a shorter version of the ad is being telecast on TV. Though both versions convey the same message, the longer version is (obviously) more … detailed.

The backdrop is of a Durga Puja at a Bengali household and this Bong lass – Snigdha does look like one in a sada-lal-par-saree (white red-bordered-saree) – experiences an olfactory fantasy where she contemplates a sexual encounter with a stranger, she accidentally bumped into, just because he smells irresistibly good (Axe?).
