With tensions brewing between India and China at the border, the Confederation of All India Traders -- an organisation that represents the nation's shopkeepers -- has urged celebrities to stop endorsing Chinese products.

Currently, quite a few B-town bigwigs are brand ambassadors of various Chinese products.
