In a very new commercial, comedian Vir Das takes on several Indian advertisements to show how women are objectified using props conveying double meaning. Think of some advertisements showing bare legs in bathtub, actress squeezing a juicy orange, you get it what we are saying!
Sexist visuals have plagued Indian advertising market since long despite too much criticism of some campaigns for encouraging stereotypes. And yet, such commercials never seem to halt.
