Which star can sell it better? Vote!


While old is gold, there's nothing more exciting than a new model. Take the case of advertisements. Advertisers keep shuffling stars, picking the current flavour of the season.

The latest to get replaced was Katrina Kaif, when she made space for Sonakshi Sinha -- flying high on her Dabangg success -- for the soap, Dyna.

Both actresses added their own touch to the ads, and looked swell. But who did it better?

We take a look at the recent celebrity ads, and compare the new and old brand ambassadors associated with it. Watch the ads, and vote for the star who sells is best!

Ranbir Kapoor vs Shah Rukh Khan in Pepsi

It's not fair to compare a superstar to a rising star but we'll give it a shot, anyway.

So SRK has loads of energy and charisma which he brings to his work. Ranbir has youth on his side.

Then there is the comic timing, which both have in abundance. What else? Oh, wait, what about the ads themselves? Both were very well done.

If the whole virginal and untouched beauty sort of thing is your cup of tea, then Katrina in white more than fits the bill.

For those who prefer dark sensuality, Ash in black is just what the doctor ordered.

Either way, the women have definitely earned their diamonds.
