Amul makes its butter even more delicious with its witty advertisements, focusing on trending and newsy topics.

We decided to look at some of its witty takes on Hindi cinema in the last decade. Take a look:

Rowdy Rathore (2012)

Akshay Kumar's popular one-liner in the film -- Don't Angry Me -- finds its own version in the Amul ad: Don't Hungry Me.
 
With director Prabhu Deva and Akshay whipping up a tasty bread and butter sandwich, the ad seemed to hit the right notes.
