Is Charulata the best option to represent Amul ?
India's famous cricket super fan, Mrs. Charulata Patel has become an internet sensation since last few matches Kohli's boys have played at the World Cup. And she is now Amul's new tribute along with Neymar, Mahi and Donald Trump.
A doodle of Amul captioned as : "Grandmother India" "for fans young and old". has been well accepted by Charulata's fans as the tweets flood in: "Best poster ever", "Amul always impresses us!!" But the truth is, Mrs Charulata has never eaten any products related to Amul.
Team India's newest fan Charulata Patel has been made aware about the amusement created by Amul's latest advertisement.
"My client (Charulata Patel) does not consume Amul. I don't think it is available there", her manager, Saurin Basu, speaking exclusively from Ahmadabad, said.
The 87-year-old lady, now residing in England, is now seen watching India's remaining matches in the World Cup. She has been blowing the trumpet whenever bowlers take wickets or batsmen hit boundaries.
The effect a wind instrument has on lung function is a much-discussed topic with inconclusive data but TV commentators Harsha Bhogle and Sourav Ganguly did appreciate the zeal and enthusiasm this lady is having.
Credit should not be taken away from her grand-daughter, Anjali, who has been patiently giving her a company at the ground.
"It is vital for our generations as well as future generations to understand that we have a social duty and responsibilities to look after our elders", she said over telephone from England.
"For me, it's second nature and it is my pleasure to make any of my grandmothers requests come true".
"I don't wish to do anything that will not be in the best interest of my grandmother. Her health is our priority above anything else".
Grand-daughter Anjali, however, is "not interested" in revealing her surname.
"I would like to say that my last name is not Patel and I only go by my first name Anjali", she added.
The family is flooded with several media requests. The super fan is now being interviewed by India's legendary cricketers.
"Like yourself, I have been inundated with various requests, and having a PR (Public Relations) team is the best resolution for these things", she added.
She has even posted this message on her mobile DP WhatsApp.
