Ahead of the clash between the two arch-rivals, Star Sports have released the latest version of the ‘Mauka Mauka’ ad. Since 2015, the broadcasters have been making a TV commercial that centres around Pakistan’s inability to defeat India in the World Cup matches.
In the new version of Mauka Mauka, the Pakistan team fans (role played by Vishal Malhotra) was carrying the firecrackers to a television store in Dubai. He asked for a big TV to watch the game, explaining how Pakistan would defeat India this time.
In the meantime, the store manager gave the buyer two 42 inches LED TVs instead of one. The manager reminded him of Pakistan losing all their encounters against India in the competition to date.
The manager further explained that the second TV was being offered as a medium to vent his frustration on it by breaking it when Pakistan loses again. He went on to add, “Buy one, break one free”, leaving the Pakistan team supporter embarrassed.
